Love it, but newer model not petite-friendly

For reference, 5'1" 95lb, boyish build. When this jacket first came out, I tried the XS and S, loved them both! The sleeves fit me perfectly, the chest did not poof, and the length was still in good proportion to my height. I would have opted for the S to leave room for a heavy sweater. Being a cheapo, however, I stalked this jacket for over a year and watched with disappointment as Marmot responded to buyers' comments to please lengthen the sleeves. (On the other hand, good on Marmot for being so responsive!) Hoping the sleeve adjustment wasn't too drastic, I finally ordered the Sassy in Granite and Black, size S. Unfortunately, the sleeves are much too long so I will return the jackets. I measured the sleeve (shoulder seam to end of sleeve)of the Small at 24.5".
