I recently purchased a sleeveless top that I loved. I tried on with a little sweater and I was in a hurry and didn't pay much attention. I took it with me on a trip planning to wear and when I put it on my arm holes were huge. You could see at least 1" of my bra under my arm. How can I fix this. I thought about trying to sew up the sides a little, but I am not sure that will work. How does anyone else fix this problem

Can you pull it up a little from the shoulder seams, that can work if the neckline is low too.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I often have to take in a little under the arm for thin arms, but need to buy the larger size width for bust, so if you can taper a little--pin to see if it doesn't throw off the bust line.
If you don't want a cami under for coolness, you could possibly add 2 little cream lace wedges there, just like adding one to a low v-neckline--will peek out like a sexy undergarment!
