How do you extend the sleeves of a T-shirt?
- Insert the cut sleeve section into the sleeve of the t-shirt that you wish to extend and secure with a safety pin to hold it in place. Before you begin to pin, be sure that the vertical seams are aligned. After you’ve pinned the sleeves together, you may begin sewing them together. Keep up with the topstitching in the t-shirt sleeves to keep them looking regular, and use the same color of thread as the t-shirt to keep everything looking cohesive.
