I have had so many emails wanting me to make a draped shirt vest with sleeves, out of a t-shirt or a long sleeve tee. I have finally made this one out of two short sleeve t-shirts, but if you wanted to make a draped shirt out of two long sleeve t-shirts, it would work the same way.
Although my first draped vest required no sewing,
this does require a basic straight sewing stitch.
or a serger, if you have one.
Things you need
- Two t-shirts *I have one medium mens and one large mens.
- Sewing machine
- Grey thread
- Straight Pins
The mens medium shirt
A. Cut off the collar
B.Cut a straight line down the middle of the mens medium shirt. Only the front layer.
The mens large shirtA. Cut off the arms,
B. Cut a straight line right below the collar
C. Cut a straight line down each side of the shirt. Your intention is to make two rectangle pieces.
A. Take one of your rectangle pieces and putting right sides together pin it, then sew it to one side of your shirt.
Do the same to the other side.
B. Trim the bottom of the shirt to match up with the part that was sewed on.
Hem the top edge all the way around the collar and down the other side.
The two rectangle pieces make the perfect drape.
For my other 5 minute draped vest
I hope this answers some of those Emails.
Have a wonderful Monday.
Lots of <3
