I don’t do many DIYs because I mainly just
steal borrow other people’s ideas. And I’m sure someone has done this one before, but I’ve not seen it yet so I thought I would share.
I had this grey long sleeved t-shirt that I used to wear under my short sleeved tees a few years ago. I loved the dark grey color and the sleeves had a nice length and cuff to them, but for a layering piece was a lil bit too short. It seemed like I was always pulling the hem down to be long enough.
I’d seen on blogs where people would create a cardigan from an old sweater and I thought I’d try that with this tee. So I put it on and made a chalk line down the center. T-shirts tend to be a bit wonky, so this was a better method than just cutting up what looked like the middle since it could end up crooked.
See what I mean? My chalk lines look crooked, but when the shirt was on my body, this line was straight.
And this is what it looks like on:
And with a white tee and scarf:
This was completely NO SEW. All I did was cut, stretch the cut end so the material would roll in on itself and wear. So literally ANYONE can do this.
I love it! What do you think?
