Skill Builder: Sleeves, Styles & Construction
If you've ever sewn a garment, you might already dread putting in the sleeves. Those round seam, those tight corners, and those tucks!
In this class we will study various sleeve styles and discuss their construction. Then we will practice putting in a sleeve. Topics we will discuss: Basting; What stitch length do I use? How many rows of basting do I use? Where do I stitch them? Should I move my needle position? Pinning: How, where and how much do I pin? Stitching on a curve; How to tricks, to keeping your seam allowance consistent when sewing a curve. Tucks; Where do they frequently occur and how to avoid them? And sew much more!
Join us for an overhaul on your sleeve insertion. We'll also cover some handy tools that can make things easier and cover basics to remember like Pressing.
This class is an elective course. Most electives are not required for further Lectures.
