I am making a trench out of a bi-blend fabric (60/40 cotton poly). So far, so good, until I get to setting in the sleeve. The sleeve has too much fabric to fit in the armsyce. I can’t ease any in with the iron before setting in, like I might do with a 100% natural fiber. It is gathered and puckery looking, and I want a smooth join.
1) Trim off the sleeve cap slightly to reduce circumference of sleeve?
2) Increase my sleeve seam slightly to reduce circumference of sleeve?
3) Other ideas?
Ever grateful to all you sewers,
