Velvet Jacket - Need Tailoring?
Guys, i have this exact velvet jacket from Thomas Pink for a while now and i love it, however, it's a touch too long on the sleeves.
I took it to my usual seamstress who upon seeing that it had fully functional cuffs said she could not shorten the length as she'd have to either (a) remove material from the cuff which would then make the cuff appear wrong as there would be hardly any material before the buttons or (b) remove the material from the seam area where the arm joins the shoulder. This second version seemed the most sensible to me however she told me she didn't want to do it because it would "ruin" the shape of the jacket or something to that effect and wouldn't be able to join the shoulder seam properly.
Does anyone know anything about this or can they advise a solution?
The jacket looks great on but I myself know that the sleeve is about 1 inch too long for my liking, i'd love to be to have my white shirts cuff on show but the jacket simply covers it up and ends where my thumb starts. (Does that describe clear enough where it rests?)
