altering mens rtw sleeves

knitting's picture

hello everyone,

my question is this: i need to hem my son's sleeves on rtw shirts. actually, the shoulder seams are over his shoulder onto the upper part of his arm. yes, basically the shirt is to big, bit he likes the length. so, should i just hem the sleeves  the basic 2 inches he wants me to, or should i go all the way and alter the armhole and pull the shoulder seam back to the top of his shoulder? i have very little experience in alterations, but i do want to do an impressive job. does anyone have any good ideas or books i could look this up in? thanks so much for the help. kay1
