Let's start to Make Garments- Setting in Your Sleeves *

Skill Builder: Sleeves, Styles & Construction
Format: Lecture/Demo, skills application

If you've ever sewn a garment, you might already dread putting in the sleeves. Those curved seams, 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.
