What is the best way to manufacture a long sleeve shirt?
- The first step. The first thing I needed to do was figure out what size sleeve I should build.
- Step Two. I next trimmed my sleeves to fit my body!
- Step Three. To finish off the sleeves, fold them in half lengthwise with the right sides together and stitch down the side seams. In Step Five, turn the new sleeve right side out, and pin the raw edge of the new sleeve inside the completed short sleeve.
Can you shorten a shirt sleeve?
Shortening the sleeves of a button-up shirt may help you get the perfect fit, and the best thing is that it’s a really simple sewing modification! Sleeves of a button-up shirt can be shortened on both men’s and women’s shirts, as well as on select children’s shirts. This approach may be used with any shirt sleeve that has a sleeve placket on it.
What do you do if your shirt sleeves are too long?
Fold the hem of the t-shirt sleeves up, taking use of the natural crease created by the hem stitch. Then, if the sleeve is long enough to accommodate another roll, fold it up once more. If the portion against your armpit isn’t keeping folded properly, you can use a safety pin to keep it from falling open (placing the safety pin on the inside of the fold to hide it).
How do you shorten a long sleeve shirt?
Stretch fabric and I don’t always get along, so I try to leave a little wiggle area in my garments when possible. The shirt should be cut at the second pin. Invert the shirt and pin the two halves of the shirt together at the shoulder seams, so that the sleeves are stacked on top of each other. This will allow you to correctly cut the sleeves so that they are all the same length.
