Hi,

My questions are what areas of fit are impacted by adding sleeves to a garment and when should the sleeves be added in fitting a muslin?


I am in the process of fitting a blouse with shoulder princess seams. I have had to make lots of adjustments, including lowering the shoulder slope, lowering the apex, altering for rounded back, replacing the front side panel with one that was a combination of two sizes, and on and on. I think I am getting close to a decent fit. My one remaining problem area is only on one side of my back where I have a large bump under my bra line, about half the depth of a jelly donut. That particular lump is caused by posture problem, so I am stuck with it.

So before I fuss with that problem, is it time to try the sleeves? Thanks for the help,

Yes, because only after sleeves are added will you feel the range of motion, andif you have plenty of room across the back..
