I reconstructed a shirt from a regular old T-shirt. Since I'm not done, and I have questions, I'm posting it here.


Since it was a regular T, the sleeves are all plain and big and boring. The shirt in its new form is sort of elegant, and I don't know how to sew up the sleeve so it matches and it isn't too tight (my arms skinny, and that just wouldn't look good considering its form with the rest.) anyone have any ideas of how to make the blah T-shirt sleeves into a more err.. 'sophisticated' but simple sleeve? Answers much appreciated, as I had coffee and I'm wired so I'll be up all night.

PS ask any questions since its highly likely I confused you. oh and sorry the pics are so small, I had to take it with my webcam and I was very very confused.

Maybe cut a strip out of the top of each, add a few holes and lace it up? Or maybe if you're good with beads make only maybe three sets of holes and thread a string of pretty beads through them to close it up?

Wow! Hehe I like those ideas. While thats what I will do for the TOP part of the sleeve, what about my armpit area? I don't think I really specified that. Oops. With lacing it, I could make the sleeve skinnier, but it would be all baggy and weird at the bottom. and ruching, I think that would be the same problem. Am I right? or would it all turn out all happy and dandy?

ruching would tighten it up a bit- not a whole lot though. personally I think the sleeves would look alright that way though.

Something else that just occurred to me, why not just slit them at the top to the shoulder seam? that could be really pretty.
