I read in a couple of places and of course now I can't remember where about sewing the shoulder sleave about 1/8" less than the normal 5/8" on one end and 1/8" more on the other. It is sort of a wave where it hits on the 5/8 mark right in the middle. My question is: Has any one heard of this and did they try it. Also which end is high and which end is low. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Thank you for your help. I followed the link and then found another link for Marcy Tilton's book. It had a perfect diagram of what I was talking about. It is on page 49 incase the link doesn't open to that page. The link is long however if you go to google books and then look up Marcy Tilton's Easy Guides to Sewing T-shirts and Tops and then scroll to page 49. Again thank you for helping me. You saved me a lot of time.
