Long Sleeves Make Great Short Sleeves – Tip #26

April 6, 2009 · Print This Article

I can’t tell you how many shirts I’ve lost due to a small spot, a tear, or shrinking.  You know what I’m talking about: the shirt that once fit and now it does not; the shirt you don’t want to throw away, because you spent a small fortune or worse yet, you just looovvvvve the shirt and can’t stand the thought of its demise.

Maybe you’ve found a fabulous top but the sleeves are just too short.  Take the item to a tailor and covert it to either 3/4″ length sleeves or short sleeves.  A tailor might charge $8.00 and you get extended life out of the garment.

My entire short-sleeve collection has grown with some fancy fabrics using this tip.


Got something to say?
