I have a woman’s shirt and a dress that I never wear because the arm holes are too big. Any tips on how to alter a arm hole on a made piece of clothing.

    If the garment is too large, taking it in at the side seams and shoulders will make the armscye smaller. Otherwise you need to add fabric, and that might spoil the garment.

      That works if the arscye gapes a small amount, but not if the armscye is just cut too wide or too deep for comfort or decency.
