Goal accomplished. Shortening the sleeves was as simple as a quick snip. The unfinished edges on this stretchy cotton rolls, so no hem needed. I used the fabric from the hood to continue the stripes through the V neck, eliminating the need for an undershirt. I took in about an inch for a better fit. Then, to add a little more detail, I used the binding trim from the hood to add a second V with a small sailor’s knot at the tip. A little reminiscent of a navy collar…perfect with the stripes, don’t you think?
Stay tuned for what I did with the sleeves!! I’m working on a few little things for my Etsy shop, which is now being revamped…sort of like my closet! I think you’ll it;)
