The Big Dolman Sleeve Shirt Made Smaller

Hello Refashion Co-op. I hope your days are filled with happy sewing projects. My project to day is this striped shirt. It was/is the softest shirt I have ever felt. It is supernaturally soft. It was also $4 on clearance. So, I brought it home even though it didn't fit at all. I figured I could fix it or wear it as a pajama shirt. I needed some more tops so I figured I would take a chance on it. 

Here it is spread out. It is an XL and it has loose Dolman sleeves that make it even baggier. My camera couldn't focus well on the tiny stripes, I apologize for the blur of the photos.

I cut it down in size but kept the cool sleeve shape. It was pretty easy except for the bobbin in my machine getting jammed up a few times. I think it would have been better to use something to stabilize the new seams. I didn't think of it until I was already done.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Fun! I just recently purchased a great big black and white striped top that I plan to do the same thing with.
