This is a really quick and easy way to give an old tee some new life!
If you don’t know what ruching is or how to do it, check out the tutorial here.
Grab your extra big t-shirt and mark and cut like so:
Cut across the chest, right at the tops of the sleeves. Cut a few inches off the bottoms of the sleeves. cut the bottom of the shirt off at the length you prefer (accounting for hemming, of course).
* Obviously you should make sure you’re cutting the bust and waist to your measurements, too.
If you want contrasting colored sleeves, you can follow the seams and cut them off. Use the pieces to make new sleeves and attach them.
Sew up the sides of the shirt. Finish the edges of the sleeves and the top edge, and hem the bottom.
