I was not happy with the jacket I made, so it was either scrap it or fix it. I decided to fix it. I took in each of the side seams 3/8", took a 1/2" tuck (total 1") at the center back, and narrowed the sleeves by 3/8" each. These seemingly simple changes involved a lot of work. I had to
- remove, alter, and replace part of the collar
- remove the lower half of the sleeves from the armsye
- take in the shoulder and all of armscye by 3/8 inch
- take tuck at center back
- re hem sleeves and bottom of the jacket.
