I purchased this top (or maybe it was a dress, I'm not sure) from Old Navy this week for under $7. It was a size large and had no sleeves. I don't wear sleeveless tops. I figured I would cut off some length and use that fabric to add sleeves.
First off I tried it on to see how much length I needed to cut off for my sleeves.
Next I cut it with my rotary cutter and large ruler.
Then I layered my sleeveless top over the fabric and cut my new sleeves adding 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Here is a good picture for making your own sleeves from craftiness is not optional you can find the
full tutorial here
Below is how I put it all together.
You can see how I took in the sides to make it smaller (the dots are my seams)
It turned out like a peplum top loose and flowy. I am so excited that It turned out.
