Remix'd: Contrasting Sleeves

    |
contrast sleeves diy {who is that girl mo?}
I decided to add more oomph to a plain black tee by giving it contrasting sleeves. Since stripes are my favorite print, I used the sleeves from this striped top. If I know I'm not going to wear something more than once, I refashion a refashion. :-)

Supplies:
two shirts
pins
sewing machine
seam ripper
  • Remove the sleeves from both shirts using the seam ripper.
  • Pin the printed sleeve to the solid shirt. Make sure right sides are facing each other.
  • Sew around the armhole. Do the same to other side.
  • You can leave edges as is, or use a zig zag stitch to have cleaner edges.

  8. Love the colorblock stripes!! My weakness is navy and red stripes, so I'd be interested to see what that would look like! I love that you did this - and your green bottoms were made for you! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com

  13. I like the black and white stripes, first I thought about red and white stripes but then it would be like "Where's Waldo" - lol Happy Hump Day Wednesday - hopped over from WIWW.

  15. Hi. Stripes are really in right now so I think I would also chose stripes. I love your coloured jeans. I have a blue pair very similar. I'm now following you on bloglovin. I will leave my link in case you're interested.
