Knock-off Mondays: Cuffed Crop Tutorial

I bought a yard  (60 wide) of this cute chiffon in LA for $1.99.  We did a little online window shopping for inspiration and found this on Piperlime.  I made the neck a little narrower, b/c I hate it when my shirt is always falling off my shoulder showing my bra strap.



I started w/ the same way as my Sheer Crop Shirt (tutorial here).

 Step 1: Measure the opening of your sleeve.  Mine was 20 inches so I cut a strip 20  5/8 (to allow for seam allowance) inches long and 4 inches wide.
 Step 2: Sew ends together.
 Step 3: Fold cuff in half so the seam is hidden.  Serge unfinished edge (Optional).


 Step 4:  Pin to right side of shirt.  Stitch.  Fold the stitched edged under and tack in place.  I also tacked the cuff in place on the outside of the shirt as well at the top of the sleeve.  


She love it so much, she wore it to a dance!  I snapped a few pics as she was heading out the door.  


TADAAA!!






It took me about an hour and I save $76.01 on the original.
