A Fresh Way to Fit a Sleeve

Threads magazine - 183 - Feb./Mar. 2016 Issue
Article Image
Kenneth D. King has a wealth of fitting knowledge, and he shares some of it in this article from Threads #183 (February/March 2016). He writes: I’m often asked how to fit a sleeve for the greatest range of motion. I’ve discovered that baggy hip-hop pants provide an ideal illustration. My finding is that fitting pants so they provide adequate room to move is like fitting a sleeve to a bodice so the arm can move. I’ll show you how to tell whether a sleeve and bodice pattern have the proper amount of ease, and how to correct them so the sleeve looks good on the body and is unrestrictive to wear.
