Sleeve cap ease is bogus #Fashion #Sewing #WearableWednesday @kfasanella

With many people looking to sew more in the last month, here’s some helpful advice from Fashion-Incubator on cap sleeves.

…There has been a long standing myth –myth– in construction that the pattern of a well-formed sleeve cap must be larger than the armhole into which it is sewn to result in a “couture” finish. I can certainly understand how people could be upset to learn sleeve cap ease is a fallacy because this would mean that all of the money and time they’ve spent on books and classes was wasted.

Similarly, no one is happy to learn that the countless hours they’ve expended actually basting these suckers in was a wash either. Still worse, if the “experts” were wrong about this, how much of what else they’ve said is also bogus?

They write that the real trick, for example, to matching stripes across the sleeve is no trick at all. Rather, it’s a tremendous amount of work. The reason why sleeve patterns often have ease is because either the armhole or the sleeve -but usually both- are cut incorrectly. Cutting those two correctly is very difficult and time consuming.

See this informative post on exactly how to get this done right and the site on all kinds of information.
