The Sewing Place

Having succeeded in making shell tops from my self drafted sloper, I've started looking into sleeves. This article has a lot of info and the tissue box demo is a really good illustration of sleeve head shapes.

Hope you find it interesting!

That is a fantastic tutorial.  Whoever invented that is a natural teacher.  I'd be proud if it was mine. Thanks for sharing it.

I'm so glad you put that up Bogwoppit.  I had lost this info and it's very good.  Many thanks.

Thanks for that link. I had seen the tissue box before but this goes into more detail and I have saved it for future use.

Thank you for posting this!  I made a toile today from a ready to go pattern with an utterly baffling sleeve, now I understand, it had so much ease it was silly!  It has a nice small arm hole though.
