Video: How to Modify Sleeves for Better Arm Mobility
A Pro’s Method for Optimal Sleeve Mobility
When it comes to garment construction, achieving the right fit is as important as stitching the garment pieces together. Sleeve fitting is no exception–-especially in fitted bodices.
During the 2015 American Sewing Expo, we caught up with pattern designer and instructor Andrea Schewe to discuss sleeve fitting and to answer our questions. Andrea has been a pattern designer for Simplicity Patterns for more than 26 years and graciously shared some invaluable fitting techniques she has learned along the way.
In this video tutorial, Andrea demonstrates three ways to modify sleeves for better mobility. She walks through the pattern work and shows how to achieve desired results.
