I finished my Mesh undershirt. but I think i have to make some alterations

Sleeves should be to my finger tips?
Waistline should be to.....???

Also, is there too much slack in the sides and underarms? I want room for shoulder pads, large speaker on my chest, etc. and general comfort, but I am wondering if I made this too big or if it is OK to keep this way?

Chewbacca is slim and with slim arms..check your reference pics.



The weight of hair will drag down on the mesh and make it baggier as well.

Up to you but at this early stage I would sort it.

Also the sides of the waist will benefit from triangles removed like a tailored shirt.

This will prevent the love handle look and blend the hair look into the trousers/pants.

Ultimately it is your build and your choice .

Good luck and enjoy the journey.

Thank you! This is good feedback

I'm not totally clear what you mean by the triangles on the side. Is there a way to elaborate on that?

Sorry for the delay ..

here is a representation on a formal shirt



It's the bottom line I mean. It is the same on the back of the shirt too. Not really a triangle more of a rounded cut. Like a formal shirt.

If you look at the reference pic of chewbacca you can see the colour difference between the shirt part and the trouser/pants part.

It made a massive difference to the look on my chewbacca.


Hope that helps.


cheers
