Not every woman has the same body shape and makes it hard when trying to buy a jacket that fits right. I have noticed when buying jackets, I can get them to fit in my bust area, but the sleeves may be too short or too long. Sometimes, they are shorter than I like them to be.
If you are having the same problems that I do, you could alter these areas to fit your body shape. I know I run into these types of problems with other types of clothing as well.
If you find the jackets are too large in the waist area, adjust the darts or seams a little at a time until you have the fit you are happy with. The same thing can be done with the arms by shortening the sleeves at the wrist or shoulder area.
If you’re not sure how to do these alterations without messing up the jacket, complete the jacket and take it to an alteration shop for proper fitting. While this may cost you a few extra bucks, it will be well worth the cost for a proper fitting jacket you like.
