I have a question on how to fix too narrow sleeves on a dress that is already sewn. The thing is that a few girls from my dance group ordered some (costumes) dresses from India. They were supposed to be made based on their measurements, but the sleeves are too narrow on all of the dresses. The problem is that the guy left no extra seam allowance
What is the best way to fix this so that it would still look presentable, since they are going to perform in those dresses?
I thought of opening a seam and adding a panel of the same fabric. Are there any other options?
