Shortening the sleeves at the sleeve cap is only done as a last resort, because there is a feature or some kind of embellishment at the bottom of the sleeve. It could be embroidered, have cut buttonholes or any other special embellished feature which should not be disturbed.
This is a time consuming alteration, because the sleeves have to be taken out, and the sleeve cap has to be recut. This eBook takes you through the process from pinning to get the right length, unpicking the sleeves, how to recut the sleeve cap and reset the sleeves.
This ebook includes illustrations and step by step instructions on this more complicated clothing alteration.
