The shoulders were a little long on this shirt so I had them taken in an inch (most places won’t let you take it in too much more). That is the only thing I had done. The sleeves’ starting point was already a little above my elbow so I figured an inch would be good enough.
You can see the sleeve is now a little higher up the elbow. I like my sleeves a little shorter still so I could take this back in again, and probably will. I posted this anyway even though it’s not the finished project, just so you all could see the effect of this action alone.
And a side by side comparison since the change is not very dramatic:
I still think, even though it’s barely noticable, that the shirt looks sharper when the shoulder is where it should be. Showing off your arms a little can be good and having the sleeve come up a little is a good way to do that.
I’ll write a summary post on this series, then I’ll write a little about choosing colors!
