Speed Sewing 3

I hope you are not tired of shirt refashions.

Remember how I shortened sleeves for Bad Dad in Speed Sewing 2? The upper arms of smaller shirts are too tapered for that technique. For my shirts, I need to use a bias self-band or a contrast band.

I used a scrap of ponte in a coordinating color.

I stitched the band on, serge-finished the seam allowance, and then top-stitched it down for flatten it.

Another thrifted shirt turned into a wardrobe staple.

  1. Eh, finding the piece that works with it in the right color in the stash is a WIN. A lucky lucky win.
