Peggy Sagers from Silhouette is having a webcast on this topic tonight 8pm CST. I'm in San Francisco and think this means for me I'll view it at 6pm. Check for yourself, I'm a little foggy! on the time changes.

I'm in the EST so I watched at 9 p.m. All the questions took up too much of her time in the beginning. Other than that, it was a great webcast.

The one thing that bugs me about the webcasts is the diffuse beginning with questions on any topic. It really cut into the time for Sleeves. I like Peggy's "can do" attitude and determination to demystify things. She's clear and logical, plus very experienced. I don't always agree with her, but I always learn.

I'm mulling over her way to enlarge the armhole. Peggy lays the bigger size over the smaller by matching the shoulder point and the sided seam, then reshapes/scoops out the cross front. I'm full busted and getting a good armhole shape has taken a good bit of work. Scooping it out more makes me uneasy. Anyone tried her method? How were your results? Thanks.

I didn't watch Peggy's show(they are just so slow to get to what I want to see)but I have "scooped" my armholes when they are too tight and it works. Think of it as scooping a crotch curve. It gives your arm more room. Just take small amounts at a time.

Also, a while back someone suggested adding a bit more to the upper side seams of the sleeve and the same amount to the upper side seams of the bodice. This allows for more room too. Adding is what I usually do, but if I forget and have the garment already made, I'll scoop a little.
