Jeffery Diduch’s article in the July issue

NancyKSews | Posted in Fitting on

The new issue arrived on Saturday and I eagerly read The Sleeve-cap Seam and the Armscye.  The main idea is measureing the seam line segments on the armscye and the sleeve cap.  Great. But no where is there any information on where to locate these segment points, ABCDEF on the armscye and abcdef on the sleeve cap.  Most commercial patterns only have the A  C and E  if you are lucky.  Burda only gives you C and A.  So my question is how  are the other marks located on the armscye and the sleevecap.

    thank you

    Thanks so much for your detailed explanation. I'll be studying it and translating it to my sleeve cap. I understand the pitch mark, I have a rather forward right shoulder and use two different sleeves for woven fabrics.  I assume that a muslin is necessary for me to find the pitch mark that suits my shoulders and sleeve cap.

    I was wondering the exact same thing and ended up guestimating (and buying reprint of The Modern Tailor Ouffitter And Clothier Vol I & II in the process and seemingly gotten no closer to the answer)!

    Thanks Nancy for asking and thanks Mr Diduch for your detailed reply!
