My first DIY

09 November 2011

Welcome to my first DIY {Do It Yourself} !
I am constantly finding these polyester or silk tops my local thrift store. I have purchased a handful of these in different colors, patterns, long or short sleeve however regardless of how small I buy them my main problem is arm length and there too long . This is how I fix these two small problems.
Prep : Decide on arm and body length.

You will need : Scissors and pins

Step 1 : Adjust length and pin

Step 2 : Iron over fold
 (this helps fabric hold it's place when sewing)

Step 3 : Cut excess fabric

Step 4: Sew above pinning

 Here is the finished product.
Perfect length sits above hip and covers my bicep.
