A Fresh Way to Fit a Sleeve
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.

Duluth trading makes shirts with an underarm gusset & a back gusset for lack of a better descriptor. I find these 2 additions to the shirt make it extremely comfortable to wear for an active life style & outside chores. I need guidance & help in being able to add these additions to my patterns. I dont see these discussed anywhere . Help !
