So I just wanted to share this very simple DIY technique either from Tumblr/Pinterest, using an old long sleeve shirt and turning it into a cardigan! The real technique only involved cutting up the middle and simply hemming it. But I decided to add a satin ribbon that matches the pale peach print of the shirt to sweeten it up! A very easy yet lovely project for you (or little girls)! They look great with collars too (see picture #3 featuring my DIY detachable collar)
old long sleeve of your choice, satin ribbon (optional)
