The newly drafted sleeve pattern is too short, no question. I toyed with putting pleats in the sleeve to draw it up shorter or with cutting it to a true three-quarters length, but ended up leaving things alone. Sometimes it's simply time to move on.
This fabric is thicker and less fluid than the quatrefoil fabric. It still worked on a 90-degree day when it was 70-degrees inside, but comparing the two fabrics, this is the heavier weight.
The hem flips up perfectly. If that was the look I wanted, things would be golden. I hesitated to sew a turned-up hem because everywhere the needle pierces, there is a tiny fleck of white. Maybe it's not noticeable to anyone who is not examining the stitching lines, but I wanted to avoid a row of tiny white dots across my hips.
I thought if I wore this to work, maybe gravity would help everything pull down. Instead, I ended up using tape to secure the hem to the inside. Even with shortening the shirt by half an inch, it wasn't too short. The tape did make the hem stiff and flare out. Someone even commented that the shirt had more flare than what can be found in the stores. I think it was a compliment, but I need to figure out how to fix this hem before I wear it again. Once that's taken care of, I can say that I like this shirt, despite the sleeves being too short.
