Hello! That tutorial will probably give you good results. What I would suggest in your case, however, is that you open up all the seams at the bicep to allow the gaps to show you where it wants more room. You can probably give the extra space at the seams by adding a little more seam allowance, especially at the seam along the shoulder and top of the sleeve. Does that make sense? I think it will save you some time and allow you to avoid making another muslin. I’ll keep watching here in case you have further questions ..read more

I have nearly completed my calico toile of the Yanaka Jacket. It’s looking very promising but I realise that I will need a full bicep adjustment. I nearly always need one! I noted your reply to Susan but I’m unsure exactly how to go about this kind of bicep adjustment because I’ve never made a sleeve like this before. Here is a link to the only tutorial I could find (please feel free to remove the link from my message if you wish as it links to another pattern company)https://inthefolds.com/q-a-series/2024/full-bicep-adjustment-grown-on-sleeve Could you please advise about how to add about 1.5 ..read more

For two days I’ve been puzzling over how to finish the bell sleeve hem. Is is simply a 1/4 inch turned twice and topstitched? I’ve zoomed in on blog posts and can’t tell if this is how it was done. I’m returning to sewing after nearly 40 years and can usually figure things out, but I am baffled. Pam ..read more
