I finally found an awesome blazer at a thrift store that I plan to wear as one of those oversized boyfriend blazers. However, it had some major shoulder padding that needed to be removed. While removing the padding, the seam came undone, which made me think that I could bring the shoulders in while sewing them back in since I'm busty and have to be careful with oversized styles.

So my general question is:
Do you know how to take in blazer shoulders?
How difficult is it?

I can't find my photo uploading cord but I will try upload pictures later!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Is it too big under the arms as well, or just around the tops of the shoulders?  If it is too big around the whole area, then you might be able to pull the extra width in from the back seam.  Otherwise, you'd have to very carefully detach the upper part of the sleeves and remove the extra width little bits at a time from the shoulders.  You also might want to taper the seams on the tops of the shoulders to take in some extra width as well if it is still too bulky.  I'm not sure if I explained myself correctly, but I hope it made sense.  Good luck!
