Taming those sleeves!

This refashion wasn't a big one, but it made a big difference to me!  I really liked the colors and details of this tunic, but the sleeves just weren't going to work.  They were a bit too open and exposed more than what I was comfortable with.




I simply cut a band from some scrap knit fabric, gathered the sleeve edge and stitched the band in place.  Pretty simple!


  

And just for fun, I added some lace around the hem to give it a little more length.



I like to link to these great parties!

    1. You're right Rachel! And, considering small corrections are usually quicker to do, its a double bonus!
