Hi fellow sewists, I don’t remember calling myself Johnny Canuck but it popped up when I hit new post. Sounds like a name my husband would have come up with. I haven’t been on this site in a long time. I just used the Threads index to find an article I remembered reading about adding a sleeve to a sleeveless pattern. Found it in the index easily – issue #91, page 32. – its a good article. I’m thinking about adding a sleeve to the very pretty blouse in the 2570 Simplicity pattern. It’s rather unique with a scoop neck, pleated at the centre and the front pattern piece shaped with a curved triangular piecing. I’m not sure that it’s worth the trouble though. I’ve already tried overlaying another Simplicity pattern with a sleeve but its difficult to align the two patterns, problably because of the different angles caused by the pleating and the shaped pieceing.
