Turning a Long Sleeve Top Into A Short Sleeve Top

I bought this long sleeve top about 3 years ago in San Fransisco. I liked the fact that it was long sleeve, and also looked like pajamas!  It was one of the few things I bought that actually also made sense in the UK weather, unlike the very tempting summery items they were selling in California.

Buuuuut…the sleeve ripped on the right side around the elbow.  And everytime I put it on I put my arm straight the hole making it much worse.  So finally I decided to do something about it.  Inititally, I wanted to keep the cuff that was at the bottom of the sleeve but move it upwards.  But that proved too complicated for me.  Obvs the sleeve was a narrower at the bottom than the top so moving the cuff up would have been fiddly, not very neat, and I wouldn’t have been able to fasten it afterward.

So instead, I just cut the sleeves short to T-shirt length, and hemmed them.  Pretty easy in the end.
