I actually had two of these regular "men's cut" short sleeve SFL shirts (not matching, from 2 years in a row), but I really needed to add one long sleeve shirt to my wardrobe... SO, read on to find out what I did! =) (It was easy, you can fix up your t-shirts too!)
(I forgot to take a before photo, but you know what a t-shirt looks like!)
|...I carefully cut the arms out of shirt 'b' and lined up the bottom hem....|
|...borrowed a long-sleeve knit sweater/shirt pattern,|
lined it up at the bottom (so I would not need to hem) & on the print, and cut them out...
...sewed the sleeve seam (with the zig-zag stitch),
and then carefully tucked the top edge into the original short sleeve,zig-zaging between the original lines of stitching on the sleeve hem.
| See how it looks now? (I really like it, and have gotten lots of complements on it & in it.)|
Oh, and I cut the neck band out and nipped in the sides a little.
