As this is our last Newsletter of the year (how is time flying...especially if you have hit the fifties!) I would love to wish you all an awesome Festive Season and a blessed 2012.
Today we are having a look at how to insert a fitted sleeve, promoting a Workshop in Melbourne and a retreat in New Zealand and you can also have a look at the latest supplement.(#283)
Happy sewing. Sonja
I received a few requests on inserting a fitted sleeve into a garment. The main problem I think is, there is no definite marks or notches on a sleeve pattern. I've tried my best to explain it below and how to do your own notches. Remember you are the Pattern Maker, so the more you transfer notches to your pattern, the easier it is to sew it back together!
Look at your sleeve pattern and mark your notches.
Please practice easing of sleeves into garment. Don't read everything then try and do it.... it won't work. Do it step by step, only then will it make sense.
There are many ways of easing, use the one you're most comfortable with. I use this method to teach beginners how to ease, I find it's the easiest way of teaching them to do this.
We are planning a Pattern Making Workshop in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday 28 January 2012.
The Workshop will involve the following:
We will supply the patterns and drafting paper. Total fee will
be A$90 and will also include morning tea, lunch and
afternoon tea. To book, please phone Michelle's Sewing Basket at
