So, I found a free tshirt pattern online. Here. And it was a pretty good fit.
Just one issue, my puny-human-arms… If I had biceps like Brutus, there’d be no problem… But…
I had a quick search online but only found ways to reduce the circumference of existing tshirt sleeves, not pattern pieces, so I made a simple hack…
Keeping the shoulder the same, I went back to my pattern piece & removed an inch wedge from the middle of the sleeve. (I’m sure this has been done by countless sewers before, but never by me …)
(It looks like the cap of the shoulder would be too acute if I had to take out much more than an inch, so if it’s a big adjustment, maybe a little from the sleeve seam too…? )

So roll on summer, I’m getting some new tshirts.
