I assume something similar would have to be done on the sleeve as well. I'm not sure how much extra fabric is needed to achieve high armholes, i.e. to push the jacket armpit into your body's actual armpit, it might...
this could be a worthwhile experiment, assuming that the potential loss would not be too great. however, the work involved would likely be so expensive that it would only make sense to try it on a more expensive garment. also, i think the only way to do it would be to start with a coat where some of the overall length could be sacrificed in order to make the armhole higher and where other elements of the jacket including pockets and button stance are also lower than...
curious how much time goes into one of these projects and also how long your gf has been at this or whether she has had any training (beyond what might have been passed down in her family)? in my family, my grandmother was a skilled sewer in a shoe factory and some of that knowledge (with respect to sewing generally, not sewing shoes in particular) got passed along to her daughters (my mother and aunts)--but i don't think i saw anything any of them accomplished that...

Also, it isn't so much the quality of the raw bean as the quality of the blend, and the consistency of taste. never been to blue...

pg, thanks for the detailed assessment. i have an appointment with chan for when they come to san francisco later in november, so will probably just go that route (with a fitting) for now. unfortunately, don't have any justification at present for travel to hk. also, figured out that your mac is a muji, correct? planning on stopping by their store in nyc next week, assuming that's the case. btw, nice avatar upgrade--mystery rack?
