I went to old navy the other day and found a TON of shirts for only 97 cents! Even if they were a little weird looking, I bought them because I figured I could find something to do with them.
Here are my stack of shirts.
I decided to do a simple cinched/gathered sleeve. First I cut the sleeves to three quarter sleeves. Then I made my sewing machine go to the widest stitch I had, and sewed straight up the arm.
I then grabbed one of the strings and pulled it until the fabric started to gather. Once I had it gathered to where I wanted it, I put the sewing machine back to a normal stich and sewed a little back and forth at each end to close off the stitch!
