The Springtime Seersucker Shirt project continues.
If you recall, last time I made a muslin of McCall’s 6044 in the Medium version, and determined I needed to take some fabric out of the short sleeve because it was a bit too large.

Before we get started, I just wanted to remind everyone that this blog is a notebook of my adventures learning various sewing techniques. You might have a better approach than the one I’m taking here; if so, I’d appreciate it if you let us know, either privately or in the comments.
I started by using the Fashion Design Ruler to trace out a curve on the fabric. It matches the line established by the pins used to take out the offending fabric. (Click/tap on photos for larger versions).
