You buy your daughter a cute shirt and pay full price for it because you just HAVE to have it. Then you feel awful about paying full price (even if it was pretty cheap and from Tar-jay).
You bring the shirt home, your daughter wears it once and you wash it. It comes out of the washer and has mysterious blue stains on it. Said blue stains did not get on any other clothes
And then the light bulb goes off… you go searching and find yet another stained shirt in your stash that you have kept. Upon further examination, you find that you can combine BOTH shirts into a new one and eliminate all stains!
1. Cut off the portions of the (dark pink) shirt that are stained. (The dark pink shirt is the new one that was just purchased. How cute are the ruffles?) Luckily, the stained portions on this shirt were on the sleeves.
2. Cut the other other (light pink) shirt so you can use a portion of the sleeves. (Luckily the stained portions on this shirt were NOT on the sleeves). The length will vary depending upon how much you cut off of the (dark pink) shirt and how long your child’s arms are.
3. Turn the light pink sleeves inside out and slip onto the dark pink sleeves. Pin the sleeves like so, right sides together…
4. Sew to attach sleeves together, leaving about 1/4 inch seam allowance.
5. Cut a strip of fabric a couple inches wide from the bottom of the (light pink) shirt. The width will vary depending on how much length you want to add to the shirt.
6. Sew this strip to the inside of the (dark pink) shirt.
