Cool idea: Use stretch lace to lengthen t-shirt sleeves

Don’t you hate it when the sleeves of your long-sleeved shirts aren’t so long anymore?  Whether it’s from wear and tear, or just shrinkage from repeated washings, those sleeves have an annoying habit of creeping up.  Tricia from Leafy Treetop Shop and Leafy Treetop Spot shares a cool idea fixing that.  She adds a band of stretch lace to the sleeve hems of a long-sleeved shirt.  Brilliant!  Read more at Leafy Treetop Spot.

    Okay, so this was a real ‘duh’ moment for me. I love the idea of putting stretch lace on the sleeves, but my first thought upon seeing this idea was to also put it on the bottom of the shirt as well. I hate short tee-shirts! Two or three inches of stretch lace would be absolutely wonderful – and stylish! I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner! THANK YOU!

    Thanks so much for posting this. I have ape-long arms. OK, not really, but regular shirts are too short in the ‘inseam’ & if I buy tall sizes, the length ends up at my crotch! So I’ll be using lace for both the ‘inseam’ & the sleeves. :-)
