|Some of you who have the forward shoulder problem probably remember me giving instructions for adjusting the sleeve by making two vertical slashes in the pattern to add length to the back half and reduce length in the front half. A wee bit time consuming but so worth it in the final fit.
Well, the other night I was lying in bed and Eureka! I got a new idea for adjusting the sleeve that is soooo much easier. First, draw a horizontal line across the cap just under the notches, perpendicular to the grainline. Make a hash mark through the line you've just drawn directly beneath the shoulder notch (this will help you see how much to slide the cap over). Cut off the cap then slide it toward the front the amount of your shoulder adjustment. Tape into place. Add additional tissue to the back. Now true up the front and back, redraw your front/back notches and there you have it. Same end result with a lot less work.
