Today, I will be sharing with you how to re-cycle old T-shirts to make longsleeves shirt for my baby. Here I used my hubby’s T-shirt because its big. As long as you know how to sew, you will be fine with this project. So, read on for the process.
Lay down old T-shirt (wrongside). i forgot to use the wrong side here but you may turn it after tracing the pattern.
Put your baby’s shirt on top. using a tailor’s chalk, trace your pattern on the Old t-shirt. leave 1/2″ seam allowance.
secure the shirt with pins
sew the edges.
For the neck line, you may sew an elastic an in inch below from the edge to create a ruffled neck line or you may opt to cut a new neck line then sew a bias tape along the edges for a more finish look. You can do whatever you like.
I love to hear your thoughts, please drop a note. thanks for reading!
