I don’t mean setting in the sleeve. What I am talking about is some decorative pleating on the sleeve. A couple of hours in, basting, pulling out basting stitches and then re-basting, I knew that I was utterly and completely lost. The instructions….no help. I am looking at instruction numbers 29 and 30 with the accompanying picture.
Went back to the pattern to check if I missed some markings…nope, they are all there and accounted for. Here is the pattern piece, note that it looks nothing like the instructions. Hmmm….what am I missing?
Stare at the pattern some more. Finally, give up for a little while.
Returned and tried folding everything differently. Then the light bulb went off…well not exactly, I realized that there was just one combination that I had not tried and sure enough it seems to have worked.
That took much more effort than anticipated. Setting in the sleeves will be simple in comparison.
