Iron the shirt well; it’s a key to have all future cuts & seams look nice and even.
Cut the sleeves to a desired length. Roll the sleeves up. This makes arms look a little slimmer in comparison to the bulk of a rolled up sleeve. I hand stitched them to insure the rolled up sleeves stay in place, and don’t unroll when tunic is worn.
