DIY t-shirt sleeves
Cut off the sleeves

For the first step, flatten the sleeve so that the underarm seam is lying straight. Then grab your scissors and cut. Start at the inner edge of the seam and slowly cut at an angle until you reach the outer top edge of the sleeve.

Once you have cut the sleeve, start folding it inwards until you reach the shoulder seam of the T.

It’s now time to sew your gorgeous rolled sleeve in place. Start by turning the fabric over so that you can sew on the inside of the sleeve. Start at the inner shoulder seam and move through your rolled fabric.

While you are sewing pull your thread, leaving a little bit behind so that it creates a loop, and then thread your needle through the loop to create the small knot you need. Do this a few times to hold the fabric in place.
