since it's so chilly here now i decided it was time to learn how to make sleeves!


this was a too-big tee which i resized, then gave it puffy sleeves, a new neckline, and kangaroo pocket to keep my hands snug.


made this from scratch out of grey jersey, with the green recycled from another top. someone called it 'grandad style' but i take that as a compliment and it's really comfy!


this was a plain khaki tee which i drew a skull design on and gave sleeves and accents from a recycled black tee.


made from a men's large jackass tee and stripy fabric from another tee.

for the sleeves i literally just traced around the sleeves of another tee. so easy, why was i scared for so long Roll Eyes  hope you like them!

I recognize you from LJ too, though I never do anything but lurk in the t-shirt surgery journal. (Not that it matters, because my screenname there is different... oh well. Roll Eyes) And if you can still get away with wearing 3/4 sleeves in the winter, I envy you. I would freeze to death!

But I like the shirts. I'm trying to decide if I like the khaki skull one or the pirate one the best.  Grin And I loooooove those two-tone sleeves.

*blinks* Jackass.... and stripes? *hugs your knees* not worthyyyy..... I love them! They all look really professional and funky. One question though - do you use the tension dial for stretchy kinda T-shirt material? Cos whenever my sewing goes a bit squiffy on Tee's, I just blame that, whereas I can usually manage cotton/denim etc just fine.... is it nessessary to use it, or can I just keep happily ignoring it?

i actually use an overlocker [serger] and yes, i do adjust the tension depending on whether i'm using a stretchy or non-stretch fabric - it involves a lot of messing around and tests on scrap fabric but it does make for neater seams and a longer-lasting garment.
