In our new, warmer climate, hubby doesn’t need to wear long sleeve dress shirts for work. It seemed like a shame to just get rid of (donate) all of his dress shirts though. Most of them were in really good condition. So I tried making one into a short sleeve shirt. It wasn’t that hard! It may seem intimidating, but it is really very simple. It took me about 15 minutes to do this. I use a short sleeve dress shirt as a pattern so I know where to cut the sleeve. Line up the shoulder seams.
Line up the shoulder seams and make sure the sleeves are the same length.
Sew each sleeve hem. I line up the fold of the hem with the edge of my presser foot. That way the seam is the same distance from the fold all the way around.
