Five-Step Sleeveless Collared Cardigan Vest

  • shirt that fits you or a little too big
  • Sewing machine
  • fabric shears
  • tailor's chalk

  • Take the shirt off and cut on the chalk line on the top layer of the shirt. Cut the sleeves to desired length.
  • With the shirt still inside out, fold, pin, and sew a double fold hem on the sleeves and turn right side out.
