Hello all,

Please help :-((
I read in one of my sewing magazines about using this interfacing to set in
sleeves and now I want to try it - you guessed - I can
not find the magazine.  It was either SewNews or Threads.  Anyone know what I
mean and if so could you post  a short synopsis of the
procedure.
Thanks,
Sun

OK Sun, These directions are for a set in sleeve in a lined jacket. The
sleeve is to be put in with all seams sewn. Measue the opening on the body,
front notch,over the shoulder to the back notch. Cut the tie interfacing on
the bias about an inch wide and the same length as your opening you just
measured. Turn the sleeve inside out and sew the interfacing to the wrong
side of the cap stretching just enough to fit between the notches of the
sleeve. This should pull in the cap enough to make it fit smoothly. Having
said all tha,t Nancy Zeiman gives directions to put a sleeve in a top or
dress using 1 1/4 inch Seams Great. The only difference is that she says you
can leave the sleeve flat and insert that way.

This sounds just exactly like the article I read.  I am going to play around
with this
technique.
