Take your shirt and measure how much sleeve you wish to cut
1
Cut the measured amount of sleeve off each arm
2
Cut the trimmed sleeves at the seam, and unfold them
3
Using the trimmings as a pattern, cut new sleeves, making sure to leave 1/4 inch seam allowance.
4
Hem the bottom of the new sleeves where your hands will be- it’s much easier to hem them now!
5
Now take your new sleeves, fold them in half matching right sides together, and sew!
6
Flip your shirt inside out, and insert each new sleeve (right side out) into the cut sleeve opening
7
Sew around the sleeve, making sure to NOT just sew straight across through 4 layers- sew around!
8
Flip the shirt back to the right side, and you’re done!
