Salt Lake City, ...
I wanted a shirt that had just enough “sleeve” on it that I could wear it to work. I haven’t done much sewing for a while, so I was very pleased with how simple this turned out to be. It has elastic through the ends of the “sleeves” that stops where the sleeves attach to the shirt (so no bunching under the arms
yuck), and another elastic that runs through the neckline. It’s a little more flared at the bottom than I intended for it to be, but I’m happy with it overall.
cotton fabric, 1/4 inch wide elastic
