Subject: sleeve cap: Does anyone have a photo of the feis dress pattern sleeve? I am experimenting with different sleeve shapes to see what works best for lift. I heard the pattern was decent for that. Just curious of their shape. THANKS!

What do you mean by "lift?" (NT)*Wednesday, July 02, 05:37:33pm

Like when the girls lift their arms when they are dancing in a team.sleevesThursday, July 03, 11:20:09am

It isn't the sleeve that gives movement, it is the shape and placement of the arm hole. The FD pattern as zero ease in the sleeve cap because it is super easy to add puff but a real PITA to take it out. The size and shape of the sleeve cap relates to the shape and distribution of the armhole. (NT)SusanThursday, July 03, 02:55:36pm

Thanks for the thoughts! I have found that the armhole raised definitely helps, but there is also a lot to be said about the cap of the sleeve. The flatter the overall shape of the pattern is at the top of the pattern the higher the arm can be raised, as seen in more vintage patterns. I was curious how flat the feis dress pattern cap was.sleevesTuesday, July 08, 10:26:59am
