Remove Sleeves to Make Summer Blouses

Recently, I saw a lovely blouse on a lady. I complimented her on it. She replied, "Thank You, I bought this along with several other blouses, at a sale, all having long sleeves, I took them home, cut the sleeves off and made me all summer time blouses." She most likely saved a lot of money by doing this.

I did this to a long sleeved blouse that I really loved, and when I ironed it the iron was too hot and scorched a sleeve. I still get lots of compliments on my now short sleeved blouse.

That's a great idea! I have heavy arms and don't like the really short capped sleeves. I never thought about making my own length. Thank you very much!
