this is super easy, just get an old [or not] dress that has sleeves and you want it sleeveless. take the stitching out from the arm hole, do this very carefully.. or you can just cut around the seam like me haha and now you’re left with a raw edge, you can either do a turn and turn and sew it down or just put it through the serger and get a lovely result.
there you go, an upgrade from your old dress :D
