Picture of Revamping a Plain Long Sleeve Shirt Into a Bow Tie Sleeved Shirt- Low Cost

This shirt design is easy to do and perfect for little girls dresses or shirts

Materials:
- A long sleeve shirt
-Scissors 
-Needle and thread

Step 1: Cutting

Picture of Cutting

I started by cutting off the sleeves then cutting off the cuffs of each sleeve

Then cut straight up the bottom seam on both sleeves


Step 2: Folding

Then you fold in an accordion style and secure with the cuff of the sleeve you cut off earlier

Step 3: Sewing

Then sew the bows onto the shoulders of the shirt and even sew parts of the folds of the bow on top so it will drape nicely over the shoulder.

and you're finished!

You could glam up this look by adding lace, beads, buttons, ruffles, flowers etc.
