Subject: Agreed with above. You always want to take out under the arms as you will also need space in the underarm area of the sleeve. Figure their are 2 side seams: 1.5" divided by 2 side sesams = .75". Each side seam is a front and a back. This means .75" divided 2 = .38" let out at each side seam. Is there at least a 1/2" at each seam allowance? If yes, then it should be doable.

A gusset can always be added to the sleeve if there's not enough fabric in the sleeve to let it out. Alternatively, if there is gathering at the top of the sleeve to make a puff then that can be released to accommodate the increase in sleeve opening. (NT)xFriday, August 11, 09:51:21am

    In my experience, letting out just the side seams doesn't help when you need an inch or so in the upper back, if this is the case, I let out a little down the zipper, (NT)meMonday, August 21, 07:42:17am
