Short Sleeves

While watching The Fashion Show on Bravo (kind of lame, I know, but I got hooked for an hour) - I got the urge to sew! I've had this jacket from Uniqlo since the winter, but never wore it because pf the sleeves - they were to tight around my upper arms and pinched in the pits!

I cut the sleeves just above the elbow, moved the cuff up, and added a gusset in the armpit. I added a large gusset so that I could make a large pleat, giving the sleeve some fullness and detail.

Came out pretty snazzy!

Pin It!
