    Rivington T-shirt With Puffed Sleeves


    I made this #SATCRivington t-shirt a few years back and I love it but…decided to chop off the sleeves and add puffed sleeves…and now I really love it 😍

    This square dresser scarf was just waiting to be some puffed sleeves! I took the regular sleeve pattern that comes with the pattern and did a puffed sleeve pattern hack (video on my Youtube). I thought I’d add elastic at the cuff but decided I like the movement of the sleeves without, plus you can see the beautiful old embroidery and lacework this way!

    ¡You can get this pattern here!



    Jeans and a t-shirt but make it a little more fancy!

    I styled my upcycled Rivington t-shirt with my wide legend trouser jeans (I’ve been wearing these with everything lately!) and pearls, a textured belt and a pop of color with the bag. I’ve already been wearing this outfit several times since I made it, it’s an easy one to throw on and feel put together.




    The perfect t-shirt pattern does exist! The Rivington is a slim fitting pull over tshirt with a classic short sleeve and two neckline choices – vneck and crew neck. Designed for stretch knits only, the Rivington will quickly become your go-to t-shirt to dress up or down with endless styling options.
