Part II of the recent shirt frenzy in Illy and Addie's sewing shoppe!
|Problems: Massive, shapeless, weird baggy pockets and sleeves about 4 miles too long|
|But look at the fabric! Could you say no?|
|Step one: goodbye tragic, flappy saggy pockets|
|Step two: Goodbye large chunk of sleeve length!|
|Step three: Adios collar. We're going for a small, standing collar sort of look|
|At this point, I rolled up the sleeves to where I wanted them to be on my arms. I'm a huge fan of rolled sleeves, and decided that I wanted to make these prema-rolled!|
|I cut some strips which would become faux sleeve tabs (what do you call those little strips?)|
|Pinning the faux roll tabs to the sleeves. Notice the sleeves are staying rolled of their own accord!|
|I stitched on a button to make the faux tabs look a bit more 'authentic', and then took in the sides of course...|
|Casually rolled sleeves, NBD, they were just the longest part of this entire project...|
And there you go! Hopefully it will be cool enough in a month or two to wear this one...
