Sleeve Construction

Reviewed by Buster from Lake Forest, CA on Friday, July 18, 2008
After reading all of the comments about the sack being too short, I ordered a size medium. I am 5'4" tall. When I received the sack I tried it on and found that it was long enough with plenty of length to spare, that is, until I raised my arms and the sack legs were suddenly at mid-calf. Studying the situation I saw that the sleeves are webbed and start just above the waist. That design is why so many people are having length problems. I turned the sack inside-out and sewed a straight seam straight up from the waist and turned the seam to a 90 degree angle at the point where I could sew a straight seam to the cuffs. I cut out a triangle piece of fabric and overcast the edge with a zigzag stitch. Removing that wedge solved the length issues with the sack.
