There's More to Sleeves than Meets the "EYE"

Lorraine Henry
Thu. June 11, 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

All Levels
Class Type:
Machine(s): Sewing Machine required

Arms "eye" (armscye that is!) Some arms are heavier in back - some need more room in front. Standard cap shapes may not be the best fit for many arms. Some arms are short above the elbow, some are long. Same from elbow to wrist! Learn how to measure for these differences. There are multiple figure variations that affect sleeve comfort. Learn what these variations are and see how to alter the sleeve for them. Then you will practice doing some of these changes on half scale patterns. And finally watch how to sew a sleeve in with no puckers in the cap using your fingers and seeing the art of "flying pins"! Then you will sew in a sleeve practicing what you have seen demonstrated. There is a dressmaker's secret that you will learn at the end!
