Recently, a friend approached me with a request to fix the burnt sleeve on my favorite textile jacket. The owner categorically refused to remake the thing into a vest, so I turned to the world mind to search for inspiration. Some of the options seemed interesting to me, and I wanted to share with you some ideas that you can use to fix, lengthen, or just decorate your favorite things.
Of course, the most common and popular decoration is the addition of lace, braid, ribbons to light shirts, blouses, and knitwear. Inserts can be made in the middle of a part:
So along the bottom of the sleeve:
There are quite intricate options for decorating sleeves with sewing and guipure:
Of course, one of the most popular sleeve transformations is cuff fantasies. The cuffs can be sewn to the sleeve or simply pushed under it:
In the case of gaps, cuts on the sleeves, you can make curly lace inserts:
Options for warmer clothing are also found. And for my task they are more relevant.
You can transform a jacket, jacket or light jacket using ribbons, braid, as well as patches or flounces from companion fabrics. At the same time, there is no limit to the options for combining colors and textures.
Or you can lengthen the sleeves with knitted cuffs or replace the sleeves completely!
The most time-consuming, in my opinion, but no less interesting solution: finishing the sleeves with fur. From the point of view of utilitarianism, it may be debatable, but beautifully:
And finally, the idea that I liked extraordinarily: just fly away, crocheted fringed sleeves on a denim jacket.
Be beautiful, creative and irresistible!
And I'll go pick my own version of the sleeve mending. I hope that everything will work out, and I will be able to boast some time later on my rework.
