Ok I just had a dull moment between studying and bed. So I thought of making a really easy T-shirt and I just had this little baby T-shirt I bought but it was just actually way too small for me. It was a shirt for a 10 yr old? Or 140 cm, which in Holland obviously is petite (as everyone here is at least 200 cm tall) so I'll share this tutorial with you all because it's just too darn simple and syupid I never tried it before.

you just cut along the hemlines and cut accross the sholder where clavicula and scapula are (the bones on either side where you want the hemline to be). I just kept them on for a nice unfinshed trim, then cut arms open and reattach.. uhmm could this be any easier?? You end up cutting a few little pieces of extra fabric off.
I took a little bit and folded it over the new hem from arm to body and stiched it up with zigzag and straight contrasting thread. But you could make the sleeves out of any other material, fabric, lace put together etc.

So now we can finally start wearing our favorite baby t-s again and steal them from little sisters, even brother.. I don't have any... But kiddy shirts are cute and reaaaaaaaally inexpensive as well!!!

hmm yes it's a little out of hand.. but it's cute this way. I've had it for 5 years now and I'm thinking about buying a lock-machine next because I said I could if I passed this year and I sort of did.. I took out all my baby tops and am going to make them all winged tops now. I'll showcase them later. First off to bed.
