Or, I ruined a perfectly fine t-shirt trying out a tutorial that I found on Pinterest.
It's not a bad kind of ruined.
I'm gonna teach y'all how to do it.
Ok so firstly get yerself a long-sleeved t-shirt.
Measure however long you want the sleeves to be, and mark that spot (Inside out of course, always sew things inside out.)
Now, make sure the sleeve is perfectly flat and cut along the crease of the sleeve opposite the seam to the mark, so the slits will be on the outside.
Then hem it, basically--turn the edge up a bit and sew it. You have to do this to both sides of the sleeve.
It should resemble that if you understood what I told you to do XD
The next step is to mark the places you want to put buttons.
ANNNND THEN SEW THE BUTTONS ON.
I hated this part.
Tedious, little stitches of obnoxiousness.
But it's the difference between, shirt, and sail. So just do it. =D
I did a bit of a pattern, the top button and the cuff button are on the outside, but the other two are on the inside.
Anyway, This is pretty awesome for a merida cosplay.
Especially if you curl your hair for it. =D
Oh and who would've thought, I have a tutorial for that too. XD
