This was D's FAVORITE long sleeve shirt!
He got it for his birthday and wore it at LEAST 2 times a week.
I can't believe these are the only two pictures I could find (B took the one on the right)
The PROBLEM: He's too tall for the shirt. Looks like a crop top three quarter length sleeve, NOT RIGHT for a boy shirt! He's NOT ready to give it up and I wasn't ready to let him look like that.
SO we went to Hobby Lobby purchased a $3 short sleeve shirt (summer is just around the corner and if he needs long sleeves he can stick a long sleeve under the short sleeve.)
Then I got out my pinking sheers
and started cutting
then I trimmed it closer
placed it on the HL shirt
then I started sewing with a brownish greenish thread between the design and the cut edge
NOW he can wear his FAVORITE shirt and we're BOTH happy!
