Step 1:

First, iron your shirts and turn them inside-out. Line up the template at the shoulders and trace around it with tailor's chalk.

Step 2:

Pin along the new side seams, and cut off the sleeves at the new armhole. Run the new side seams through the serger.

Step 3:

Lay out the old sleeve under the template t-shirt and mark the new underarm and armhole.

Step 4:

Serge the underarm, then cut the shoulder curve.

Step 5:

Flip the sleeve right side out and set it inside the armhole of the shirt. Pin both sleeves into their armholes.

Step 6:

Serge the sleeve seams and you're all done!
