Holy easy project, Batman.
This was such a fun no-brainer—a trifecta, really, of circumstances that yielded kid #3 something like 50 new shirt combos:

Faux-Layered Awesomeness in two seconds flat.
This shirt can be worn plain. And sometimes plain is fine.
But sometimes plain gets the boot with a funky 3/4 ruffle or striped, full-length sleeve.
Just slip socks or leg warmers on all the way up to the shoulder and you’re set.
You can attach your new sleeves with a zig zag stitch/serger to make them permanent or just wear them opera glove style depending on your fashion fancy. Go for a more polished look by wearing the faux sleeves with the finished edge showing or keep it super casual with the raw edge exposed.
Here’s another example:
most days this is just a plain black shirt.
But add some faux sleeves and you’ve got a holiday wardrobe in seconds.
Go hack up some socks or drag out those old leg warmers
and stay warm (and cute) this winter!
