Good evening cutie pies!!! Today, I was inspired by the lovely weather to make over this neon pink shirt that I bought just for the color!!! So, here’s a 12 step tutorial step by step on how to spruce up a drab tee.
Cut the sleeves off each side.
Saving 1 of the cut off sleeves, (you will see why later in the project).
Starting from the bottom of the sleeve, measure across a inch and pin down to the end of the shirt.
Cut the access fabric off…it’s your choice if you want to serge or zig-zag stitch the sides. I chose to use pinking sheers, much quicker for the project!
Fold the shirt in half down the back.
Cut about a 5-6 inch slits across the back, you are going to do this 7 times they should be around 2.5 inches apart.
(The picture shows 6 slits add one more…)
It should look like this…
Pin two of the slit sections together in the middle. You should have a total of three.
Here is where you are going to use the saved sleeve. Cut three stripes.
Take the stripes and place under the pinned slits. Fold over and sew.
Cut the excess fabric off. Turn over the sewn fabric, so you can’t see the sewn edges.
Your shirt should look like this.
Cut the collar off your shirt.
This is optional, cut a few slits in the front of your shirt.
Finally, your 12 step makeover tee is finished…I scrunched the sleeves on the second pic to show a little versatility.
