Diy 70s Bell Sleeve Shirt - The Goodowl
March has been the month of saving for me, well I say saving - pet bills have got me spending more then ever! But hey you gotta' do what you gotta' do. Frustrated that i could'nt splurge on some new goodies I decided to turn my attention to things I already owned as more often then not our own wardrobes hold the answer to our fashion woes. 

After a good rummage I turned my attention to my humble white shirt, I seem to own duplicates thanks to the wonders of the Sainsburys school shirts (16 year old size still fits me *fist pump*). I thought about giving it a little spring spruce over and with the 70s being so prominent i thought why not give it a little flare. What do we think?




What You Need

2 x Shirts (Any Colour or Size)
Sewing Machine - I used the *Brother LS14
Scissors
Thread

Step 1: Cut the sleeves, whatever size you like the shorter the sleeve the larger the flare.
Step 2: Cut the second shirt, cut it to the length of the original sleeve - you could make it longer or shorter, again it depends on the size of the flare.

Step 3: Cut the offset from the second shirt  in half. This will make up the flare for the sleeve
Step 4: Sew them into a tube shape, then gather the un hemmed side (Do this by sewing on the largest stitch size then pull the threads).

Step 5: Back to the original shirt with the cut sleeves gather the new cuff
Step 6: Attach the flared sleeve to the gathered sleeve cuff
Step 7: Give it a good press and viola, a brand new 70s inspired shirt.
