I bought a tee shirt through the mail. I’m a 5′ tall woman, the shirt is probably meant for a tall man. The all-cotton shirt is comfortable in the body circumference, but the “short sleeves” are elbow length on me! The shirt doesn’t come in “women’s sizes”, so even a smaller shirt would have the same sleeve-length problem.
I’ll wash the shirt once before trying to do an alteration.
Does anybody have any recommendations for shortening the sleeves? If I totally remove them the arm hole will be too low and I think fiddling with that would alter the appearance of the decorated portion of the shirt.
The sleeves are at least twice the length I need them to be. Right now I have the sleeves simply tucked up into themselves, forming a slight shoulder pad and leaving the original sleeve hem exposed. Is there any way to stitch this and have it look neat? Has anybody had a good experience using snaps to keep tee shirt sleeves tucked up?
