You don’t need to sew or knit to learn how to make a sexy sweater T shirt in 5 minutes. All you need is a tight turtle neck knit that you can find in outlet stores like Nordstrom Rack or cheap department stores like Target or Wal-Mart. Add a pair of scissors and iron on hem tape and you’re done. If you can iron, you can learn how to make a sexy sweater T shirt following these steps.
Step 1. Cut the Sleeves
Put on the knit sweater to see where you would like to cut the sweater T shirt sleeves. Lay the shirt flat on the table and cut both sides of the fabric simultaneously. Then flip the cut side over to the other sleeve and copy the length. To make a sexy sweater T shirt keep the length of the sleeves equal to that of regular T shirts.
Step 2. Hem the Sleeve
To secure the new sleeve ends on your sweater T shirt, make a small fold at the bottom. Open the package of iron on hem tape (which you can find at fabric and craft stores). The tape is folded in half already. All you have to do to finish making your sexy sweater T shirt is slip the folded sleeve end between the tape sides.
Step 3. Iron the Hem in Place
On the iron on hem tape package you’ll find instructions for how hot your iron should be and for how long to iron the tape over the sweater T shirt sleeve. Cut the tape end so it overlaps where the circle of the sleeve hem ends.
The turtleneck will make your sweater T shirt all the more sexy. Add a tight vest, and your homemade sweater T shirt will turn heads. For more homemade fashion tricks, see my article on how to sew a stunning dress with minimal sewing, or how to bleach your clothes for a chic new look on a budget.
