One of the first pieces of clothing I sewed. Used some sleeves left over from a failed project and miraculously, they fit! Cut a straight size 8 as the size chart matched my measurements exactly, but had a few fit issues – it obviously needs a bit of length, but it also rides up my bust and pools in my upper chest. Even though it is tight enough to limit arm movement, it feels like it is falling off my shoulders all the time. Thoughts? I’d like to make another but want a good fit too.
