This is a revised version of the cap sleeve shrug. It’s made out of one medium and one extra large white t-shirt. Tutorial will be shared soon.
Here’s how I made it. Place the cap sleeve shrug pattern on a medium sized t-shirt with the fold along the straight edge. Pin and then cut carefully with fabric scissors.
Unfold the fabric and pin top left and right corners down to the bottom left and right corners. The underarm curved edges should match. If you want to make the shrug longer, edit the pattern to make this curved edge longer. Pin and sew along curved underarm edges.
After trying out the shrug, the front end didn’t cover as much of the chest area as I’d like so I added some panels to the front.
Using the pattern edge that corresponds with the collar area, I cut out two pieces that would meet at the back of the neck when attached to the main piece.
Iron before you sew to ensure it lays flat.
To add the high low hem, a curved strip was cut out of an extra large white shirt. You Will need this strip to be longer to create pleats. I had just enough fabric without having to worry about that stain.
Place the pieces together to figure out where you want the pleats to be. Pin carefully.
Pin the hemmed edge of the tail to the right side me the top. Sew two lines to connect the two.
Remember to hem up the arm holes.
To finish, iron. This makes a big difference. All done! This is washer and dryer safe.
