Problem: Button-up shirt with sleeves 3/4″ too short
Solution: We had a shirt in our collection that we already used the body hem of to extend another shirt, so out of curiosity I thought I would see if we could utilize this shirt again. Sure enough the fabrics looked great together (you gotta love that pattern-mixing is in!), the cuffs were the same width, and the different shapes at the sides added a cool detail when combined. Problem solved!
