Let's Start to Make Garments! (Part 10 in the series) Gathering and Setting in Sleeves!

Skill Builder: Let's Start to Make Garments
Part #10 Sleeves
Format: Lecture / Demo / Skills lab

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

In this class we will learn how to beautifully insert a sleeve with ease! 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!

Where else can you use the skills you learn to gather a sleeve? We will discuss that too!
Join us for an overhaul on your sleeve insertion.
