Large Upper Arm Alteration

by Vickie Utley
I am grateful for this video. In the video Mrs. Glenda shows how to gradually ease the sleeve into the armhole instead of gathering it, which makes a big difference in final appearance of the garment. Thank you Mrs Glenda for sharing this secret!

Good title fits topic perfectly

by Shelby Smarte
As always, Glenda covers the material in a step-by-step fashion with clear, concise instructions. Well done.

Excellent. The set-in-sleeve is the most difficult to work with, so the title is relevant.

by Annick Brennen
The course was well planned and delivered. Handout is excellent with detailed and well illustrated step-by-step instructions.

Very Informative

by Jeanette Pugh
I found this video very informative to how to make the sleeve wider to give the garment a perfect fit. I learned how to adjust both the sleeve and the bodice top. I will return to this video whenever I need the help with setting in my sleeves.

BRAVO!!!

by Juanita Baker
This was one of the best-explained videos on set in sleeves. I've been sewing for over 45+ years and I find that there is always something new to learn. Glenda is a great teacher and thanks so much for the very detailed class.

Clear information, as always!

by Phyllis O'Dell
Very helpful to see the larger bicep sleeve tune up and sewing methods actually done. It was a bit confusing at times to figure out the written instructions. For some reason, in the booklet I did not notice the large upper arm measuring technique of dropping 1/2" at the side seam of the bodice and extending the length by 3/8", so I will try it that way, next time.. I do have large upper arms so the demo was extremely useful for me. I will need to modify the sleeve the same way for the shirt kit sleeve. Even though there is more ease with the shirt sleeve, I still need to enlarge it.

Great class and video
