Throwback Sunday: Easy, Basic and Fun Sleeve Refashion


This isn’t exactly a “Statement Sleeve” but since that’s the challenge for this week in Refashion Runway, I thought I’d share a post from a few years ago of an easy sleeve refashion of my own:

Inspiration can be found in the strangest places. Who would’ve thought that a TV series about a funeral home would inspire this next refashion.

I’ve been unexpectedly enjoying the HBO series Six Feet Under. Claire showed up in episode five wearing the perfect shade of eggplant to go with her beautiful complexion and red hair. Not only was it just the right color for her but it had these fun cut outs on the sleeve.

I needed to give it a try.

This was supposed to be my experiment shirt. Just to see if it would work.

Well, I think it worked and I can see so many possibilities for this kind of sleeve. I can’t wait to try this again for an entirely different look.
