I found this knit top during one of my thrifting store scouts. I love the kind of pleated detail in the front, but the top itself was too big and I wanted a summer top, not a winter top. So I decided to make it exactly what I wanted. 🙂
Remaking a Long Sleeved Knit Top
If you don’t have a sewing form, have a partner help you out.
Since the sleeves weren’t tooooooo large, I used the line at the seam as a cutting point to cut off the sleeves.
Sewing the sleeves up.
Following the pins, I sewed up the sides.
Make sure the seams at the underarms will stay put.
I think it turned out pretty good!
Here’s a close up of the pleat and the sleeve.
