So my coat for this winter, although beautiful, does not have sleeves. Which makes for some really unhappy arms in snowy weather. It's also a pain to have to wear long-sleeve shirts all the time just to cater to my coat, SO to remedy this, I made my own pair of arm warmers out of an old long-sleeve shirt that I no longer wear.

What you'll need to make your own:
-Long sleeved shirt
-Needle and thread
-Sewing machine/serger (I used both in this project)

Step 1: Cut off sleeves

Take your long sleeve shirt and cut the sleeves off.
I cut mine off as close to the seam as I could because I wanted them to be as long as possible, but you can really make them any length you like.
Where did you get that wonderful coat?
I love this idea. I like wearing t-shirts in the winter any my arms get cold,
and yes. Indeed, that coat is absolutely beautiful! So glad you came up with a workable solution! (and shared it!-ty!)
Those look lovely! I love arm warmers!
Thanks! They're also super quick and easy to do. I can't wait to make another pair out of thrifted sweater I just got. :)
