Featured in the PR book!
Most of you may already pretest the sleeves in your mock ups. Since I dislike setting sleeves, I just sewed the underarm seam, slipped it on, and decided that it fit. Me, not the garment. Although the full sleeve on the final version fit into the garment well, it really changed the whole fit of the upper body in a way that was not comfortable or flattering.

Now I will cut and sew both sleeves in for any mock up I try.

Ann, also try Sandra Betzinas tip of putting a line of ease stitching in the front armsyce from say the notch to the underarm seam. This is a RTW treatment that makes that part of the sleeve hug the body better.

Ann, when I am testing a new pattern, I usually only put in one sleeve. Since I will not be wearing the test garment, which is usually made from scraps or muslin, there is no need to repeat myself.
