Earlier today my cousin gave me t-shirt that he apparently would never wear. The only problem with this is he wears an extra large and I wear a medium. The shirt is absolutely awesome and it fits well except the sleeves which go down past my elbows so I figured "What the hell, I'll just try to shorten the sleeves." So here I am trying to figure out how I should sew the sleeves to make them shorter but I don't have a sewing machine. Thanks in advance. (Yes I tried google)

Make a simple hem?

If they're really long, just cut most off, and leave a little bit left to make a nice looking hem.

In reality, I use zip ties, leather patches, and a knife.

You know what to do, gangsta.

EDIT: Oh shit. I didn't see it was you man. You should still go gangsta, like Grant Patterson or Ryan Gallant.

Fold in the ends of the sleeves inside the sleeves themselves to the length you want, and sew straight across about an a 1/4 inch from the ends. That's what makes sense to me to do anyways...

just put it in the wash on hot then put it in the dryer and it should shrink a bit.
i'm working on this same thing at the moment...

That's the problem I have no idea how to hem... I'll see if my grandma can do it if I fail to hard

Otherwise you could just roll them up, and/or fasten them up with safety pins... for a grunge look.


Safety pins is more of a punk look, I may be wrong, but I've never seen grunge people wear safety pins.

The shirt is the same band as in my avatar... not even close to either genre

To anyone that hasn't heard of the The Black Dahlia Murder, that just looks like a random, pixellated mess They could be any old genre for all the majority of people here know.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Screw sewing.

Get jacked or get fat.

The only manly way to make the shirt fit.
