This shirt looks horrible in these pictures. The shoulder/arm area is a mess. What other alterations would you suggest for me? I sew a lot of knit things but would like to sew more fitted woven jackets and things. I already do a shoulder to bust tuck of about a 1/2". That's usually the only thing I do. The sleeves really aren't all that bad but then again, pictures don't lie. It looks like there are puckers all over but there really are not. I swear. My shoulders really look like they are sloping down too, eh? This is BWOF 09-2008 #115. I am trying to figure out which kind of buttons to use. But, now I'm perplexed about the shoulders. I'll try a good pressing but the chest area also looks like it is all wrong now too. Dang it! This is really nice fabric too that my husband bought me. These are the only buttons in my stash that sort of work. They are a smokey gray but I think they are a bit too bit for this top. What do you guys think? The other problem with these buttons is that I don't have any more and I need two smaller ones for the cuffs.
Here is one of these cuffs. When I do the full review, I'll show you the other side (which is horrible).
