taylortailor Anybody else hate dealing with sleeve cap ease? I've adjusted this sleeve so many times that my pattern is pretty much laminated with clear tape. #sewing #patterndrafting 1w
  •   dilladop I don't know if it will help, but Casey Maura has a tutorial that I have used and it worked beautifully. I think it's called Demystifying Sleeve Ease. 1w
  •   taylortailor @dilladop thanks. I'll check that out. 1w
  •   foomarks Is this for shirting or a jacket? 1w
  •   taylortailor @foomarks this is for a jacket. 1w
  •   foomarks Just a guess: but are you maintaining the same cap height? In the photo, it looks like you're adding ease *and* cap height at the same time 1w
  •   taylortailor @foomarks you are right. The photo does show both. I ended up scrapping the change shown in the photo and drew the cap again. 1w
  •   foomarks What I learned from a pattern/fitting class: you only swivel the lower horizontal slash line while opening up the center line and maintaining the upper half slash line. (In the photo, the upper and lower halves are swiveling at the same time.) Good luck! 1w
  •   taylortailor @foomarks thanks! I appreciate the tip. 1w

  •   seattleknitterguy Cats and cardboard boxes. The lure is, apparently, irresistible! (This from the guy who, as a kid, made forts out of appliance boxes. Hmmm...) 2w

taylortailor Finished my new #sewing and cutting work table. One side has a bar to hang cutting tools, the other side has a place for rulers and curves. It has locking castors to easily move it around, and an under mount drawer for pencils etc. I made it counter height so I can stand and work without being hunched over. 3w

  •   reynalay Can't wait to see It! 4w
  •   lyudabudda Sweet! Are you building from a template? 4w
  •   taylortailor @haisan408 my table is relatively small, so the piping expense wasn't too bad. 4w
