Refashion Idea | Adding Jean Sleeves to a Sweatshirt for Textural Contrast

I had leftover jean jacket sleeves after making this denim jacket with contrast chunky knit sleeves. The sleeves were perfect to refashion another top. So I found that blouse on Pinterest and I loved the idea.

(this jacket available here in thee shop)

I took a plain black terry sweatshirt style top and exchanged the sleeves for the jean jacket sleeves. It was important to pick a shirt with drop shoulders so that the sleeves would fit no matter what.

With a seam ripper I took off the bottom portion of the sleeves on the sweatshirt and then cut the jean jacket sleeves to that length.

I sewed the jean jacket sleeves onto the black sweatshirt, serged the raw edges inside together, topstitched and that was it. Came out looking pretty similar if I do say so myself.
