I love how your new shirt turned out...
Also noticed how you took in the sleeves at the shoulder seam and under arm, it looks really nice and fitting. Whenever I took in sleeves, that part was always uneven. Would you share how you did that?

i was actually really scared about that part, but pretty happy with how it turned out! ok, let me think about what i did...

it was sort of haphazard. i had my finace draw a light line on the sleeve while i was wearing it as to mark the seam for a nice fit. then i pinned along this line (with the sweatshirt now inside out). and the most difficult part was figuring out a good curve for the armpit area. to do that, i just sketched out what i thought would work, then put in some basting stitches. i had to re-configure that a few times, but eventually i got it to work! sorry that i don't have a more technical answer, as i am not a seamstress by trade. my advice is maybe look at another shirt about the same size and follow the curve of the seam from that shirt. good luck, and i hope i helped a bit!

Thanks for the tips. Your method must have worked coz it turned out great! I'm not a seamstress neither. So your basting method may just work for me. Next time, I'm gonna try that instead of just cut & sew & regret.

That's power-rific! Maybe you could cut it in half down the back and have it button up that way... so when you are walking down the street, people will see you from the front and say "could that get any cooler?" and then when you walk past them, they will see the back and POW! be hit by a fantastic ray of power-button-ness.

i was going to suggest that but you beat me to it =D   its awesome the way it is, but i think as a cardigan it would be even cutter just dont mess up the front!
