My little girl grows like spouts out of her clothes
So this year I bought her some clothes which 2 size bigger , like these cardigans
They will last longer (?)
Ok, back to the cardigans. The sleeves are 4 inch longer than her arms (because of bigger size)
But I can´t cut them off away.
I shortened them
but let them grow with my kid
1. Fold and sew the sleeves as show. Turn right side out and tacked the folded piece into place.
2. sew four long stich (basted stich) around the sleeves (I did 4). Gather, knot two ends of your basting thread together to secure and enjoy new ruched sleeves
Instead of basting you may use elastic (like the ruched leggings).
But it will take longer to rip out and may ruined your sleeves.
