Picture of Big t-shirt to little angel
Turn a boring white t-shirt into a great angel costume for kids!


1 big white t-shirt
2 m of lace
1/2 m of ribbon
sewing machine
2 sheets of cardboard (A4)

Step 1: The wings

Sew lace on the edge of the sleeves, going further down on the t-shirt on both sides (front and back).

Bend the cardboard diagonally and cut the extra piece so that you get a double triangle.

Insert the cardboard into the sleeve and sew it using the sewing machine so that it doesn't move.

If you leave off cutting the holes out in front and sewing the diagonals, you have a really cute little nightgown for a little girl. The ribbon would pull it together in the back and a little gathering in the front or shirring would make it so cute!

Is this a puffy shirt? Like Jerry Seinfeld's Puffy Shirt "But i don't wanna be a pirate"?

Any chance of a picture of it being worn (by a dummy if you have no handy children)? I'm interested to see what those new sleeves do to the way it hangs.

sorry...no dummies or kids available. they should hang just fine by adjusting the way the ribbons are tied.

A very clever idea, especially for something like a Nativity play, when you have a lot of angels to dress and NO budget!
