I am a woman "of a certain age", who lost 60 pounds about 2 years ago, and my upper arms that used to be filled with fat, now are not, so my upper arms flap. I like to call them angel wings! In an effort to be able to continue wearing said T-shirts, I added double sleeves to each shirt, and here are the pictures. What do you think?

Wonderful idea.!!!!! You might even buy some extra wide lace and use that on dressier t-shirts. The shirts look good.

Congratulations on the weight loss. Great idea extending the sleeve length. After seeing this, another idea came to mind. Maybe you could use fabric for the added length, and adding a matching collar for a layered look.
