Summer is in full bloom, and that means it's suuuuper hot, at least where I'm from. A big trend in fast-fashion stores lately is sleeveless blouses. Seriously, when I went to Forever 21 and H&M, maybe every other shirt was sleeveless.
When I was thrifting the other day, I found a very cute, very cheap blouse, but the sleeves were waaay too tight. So... I cut the sleeves off and sewed the edges, and now I have myself a very cheap, D.I.Y'd sleeveless blouse that's summer ready!
Seriously, if I could do it, anyone could.
-A blouse (preferably one with a collar)
-Sewing machine or needle and thread similar in color to your garment
First, cut the sleeves off, but leave some room to sew the edges. Then, sew the edges in! It's kind of the easiest D.I.Y ever. If you have a stain on a sleeve that you can't quite get out, or if you just want to summer-ize your closet, this is perfect.
