Winter Shirts To Summer Shirts

On an exceptionally warm spring day, I noticed that my 3-year-old grandson had almost no short-sleeved shirts to wear. After scrounging through his dresser, I noticed that he had a LOT of long-sleeved cotton shirts that would not fit him next winter. Some of them had double sleeves, like this:

Hey, I thought, couldn’t I just remove the lower part of the sleeve? After turning the shirts inside out to see how they were sewn together, it looked like it would work, with no need to even hem anything up. So I cut off the bottom part of the sleeves, and in less than five minutes had some summer shirts for the little fellow!

If you’ve got this style of shirt at home for either girls or boys, give it a try. It will save you about $5-$10 a shirt, and you don’t even have to drive to a store to get them!
