Yay: it’s a grey version

Nay: it’s available in XLL size, sleeves are a “scissor cut”, last year the sleeves were sewn “roll on” (see white version)

???????????????????????????????

The T-shirt is very big!…So let’s make it a few sizes smaller!

???????????????????????????????

This is how to: mark the piece that needs to be cut out, draw a line with chalk (or erasable pen).

???????????????????????????????

The white line which I’ve drawn = chalk line. Cut 1 cm away from this line with scissors like so:

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Place the side piece on the other side, pin it down and mark again with chalk (or erasable pen).

???????????????????????????????

Now the 2 sides are cut identically!

???????????????????????????????

Don’t throw away the side pieces, but use it to finish the sleeve ends (!). You can leave this step if you like scissor cut sleeves…

Because the side piece is a double fold, we can easily pin it to the sleeve…

Sew the side piece on the inside part of the sleeve!

???????????????????????????????

seamline: 0.50 mm (because I don’t have much fabric to work with)

???????????????????????????????

Now it’s sewed on.

???????????????????????????????

Turn the fabric and fold it in double (it’s easy because it’s already folded!)

???????????????????????????????

Pin down and sew again, make sure you sew over the previous sewing line.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

Before you sew, use the biggest stitch line! (stitch 4 on my Singer 8280).

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

You are done with the sleeves. Now continue to sew the new cut side lines of the T-shirt.

…and overlock.

???????????????????????????????

Hide the overlock thread with a knitting needle. A knitting needle won’t hurt your hands, it has a round tip.

(in flemish we call it ”maasnaald”)

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

You’re done, easy and quick!

I like to personalise my T-shirt with gems and sew-on pearls.

???????????????????????????????

For my gems, I need to glue them with a gem heating tool.

Measure your gem, then screw the corresponding metal top on it.

Measuring…

Screw it on…

???????????????????????????????

Place carton or a magazine (in my case) to prevent the gems sticking inside the T-shirt.??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Place the gems and press lightly with the heating tool.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

 

Results…

???????????????????????????????

Add pearls to finish it.

???????????????????????????????

My choice is made! This white one will do…

???????????????????????????????

Sew the pearls on…

???????????????????????????????

Personally I don’t like the words “Nederland” because I’m from Belgium. So I found a way to cover it!???????????????????????????????

Sew a left-over piece from the T-shirt on the words…

???????????????????????????????

…almost invisible right?

???????????????????????????????

Add pearls to cover the piece…

???????????????????????????????

Et voila you’re done!

???????????????????????????????
