Sewing Technique - Sew Sleeve Caps Without Puckers

Sewing Techniques

Sewing Friends:

I know some of you hate to set in sleeves because you get puckers and the garment screams, "Homemade!" It isn't always your fault.

Unfortunately, sewing patterns are not consistent even within the same company. Some sewing patterns just have too much ease in the sleeve caps. You really should check each one. A good guideline is about 1 to 1-1/2 inches of ease in a sleeve cap. Eliminate the excess, use a good easing technique and you will be more successful setting smooth sleeves.

If you want to sew smooth sleeve caps without puckers plus learn more about how to ease fabric, check out the sewing technique at this site:
