|I discovered something the last time I eased a sleeve. I was doing the usual, easing and lifting the fabric just about to fed under the needle and had the normal results--fairly good, no puckers. All that effort was done with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Normally, I would go back around inside the first stitching to reinforce the seam, BUT this time I . . .
sewed the second set of stitches on the outside of the 1/4 creating a 5/8 inch seam allowance. What great results. It was as if the 1/4 inch effort served as a basting because all the WORK was done then. The 2nd seam was quick and looked even better than the first.
