I have been on a bit of a refashion kick lately, but can you blame me? I love it when I can take something ho-hum, and give it a kick in the pants. If you have been following the blog for a bit, you probably know I have a thing for camouflage. So when I saw this basic long-sleeve camo tee – I knew I had to have it. Once it was in my hands, I then made it truly my own by adding some custom arm panels to the sleeve.
The verdict? Instant love.
The best part? It is SUPER easy to do! In fact, you don’t even have to know how to sew if you don’t want to! (Sewing will create a better end result, but it is not necessary if you want to skip that part).
Arm Panel Refashion DIY.
- Long sleeve t shirt
- Scrap fabric for panels
- Pellon Wonder Under Fusible Web
- *Sewing supplies optional
- Press your long sleeve t shirt. Lay back of shirt facing up on a flat surface.
- Using the bottom half of the back of your sleeve, trace around on a piece of paper the panel shape you would like.
- Use the traced paper as your pattern piece.
- Fold scrap fabric in half and place pattern piece on top of folded fabric. Cut around, giving you 2 mirror image panels.
- Cut out (2) panel patterns from your fusible web, and iron onto the wrong side of your fabric panel.
- Peel the paper backing of the fusible web, and place the fabric panel right side up on the bottom half of your sleeve. Iron on.
- For extra security, sew around the fabric panel to secure.
And you are finished!
