I wasn’t surprised when I went to buy my tiny Kindergartner a School Spirit Shirt and they handed me a HUGE, Ugly, Boxy, Boy lookin’ excuse for School Pride!!!
Do they not know girls attend too!!! And heaven forbid a box of XXS OR XS Shirt are ordered!
Well have no fear little learner! Mama did what she does best and
whipped that baby right into shape!!! LITERALLY!!!
Spirit Shirt REVAMP:
Adding a little feminine style to an over sized dud!
Ok… Back to the sleeves. Cut the seam off that makes the sleeve a tube. Turn the shirt right side out. ( Ignore the fact that I still have mine inside out in the photo… I realized my mistake AFTER the fact!!! Oops!!) Starting in the arm pit, pin on the opened sleeve. Be sure to leave 1/4″ section so you can sew the sleeve back together once it’s on the shirt.
To add the ruffle in the sleeve, hand wind elastic thread onto your bobbin and straight stitch a ring near the edge of the sleeve. You will then pull the elastic tighter to make it ruffle. Tie it off and now you have a cute girly sleeve!!!
I also added a small strip of elastic to the sholders to pull it in and give it a little pucker.
And that’s about it!! A little School Spirit for a Girly Girl!!!!
We’ve got SPIRIT! YES we do!We’ve got SPIRIT! How about YOU!!!!
