I have been feeling a little guilty for not posting any of the projects that I have been working on lately so today I have decided that I need to do a refashion post.
I started with a long sleeve shirt and transformed it into a stylish strapless summer top. Hope you like it!
Here you can see that I sewed along the sleeve openings. After I sewed it the first time, I realized my line wasn't straight when it came to the whole shirt so I had to resew it. So don't follow the armhole exactly- there will be a bit in the armpit that needs to be trimmed out so the seam is straight.
Turn the shirt right side out. Fold over the raw edge at the top opening and sew down. Be sure that you use a ZigZag stitch if you don't have a twin needle function on your machine. If you don't your seams will rip out (break) when the fabric stretches.
Now it's time for the folding! The next three pictures will show you how to do this. Basically you bring the sleeves across the shirt diagonally, twist, bring back to the side the sleeve is on and pin down.
