I just could not pass up this $2 clearance t-shirt for my daughter. The only issue was its long sleeves. No problem...(sorry, I got ahead of myself and cut off a sleeve before taking a before picture...but you get the idea. )
Measure how long you want the sleeve to be, add about 3 inches to that length and cut.
Use the cut sleeve to measure the other sleeve and cut.
Fold up both sleeves about 1 to 1 1/2 inches and iron down. While the sleeves are cooling down, cut a long strip of fusible web (I use Wonder-Under) about the same size as your fold. Iron the fusible web to the folded sleeve as shown below.
Let the sleeves cool down again and then peel off the paper backing of the fusible web.
Fold the sleeves up one more time and iron. I promise this is the same shirt...but this pink color is the true color of the shirt.
Done...now you have a perfect summer t-shirt.

Gotta love those dimples. They go well with her new shirt.
