Subject: The wrinkles point to the problem. Have the dancer wear the dress and move her shoulders back and then raise her arms out to the side as in figure dancing. Watch what happens to the sleeve head. If you see deep wrinkles acrossed it, the sleeve head is likely too small. (more inside)

In reply to: Wits End 's message, "help with armholes - I have made some solos with good success but I have been asked to make a school's class costumes and I'm having problems with the armhole. They can't lift their arms, can anyone help me? Would it be the armhole shape or would it be the sleeve? Can anyone recommend a good pattern for both children and adult bodice with good armhole and sleeve. I'm at my wits end!" on Friday, December 14, 05:36:53am

If the wrinkles point to the armpit, the armscye is too deep. The armscye should be about 1" below the armpit. The sleevehead needs to be 1-2" larger than the dancers upper arm. To double check, take out the sleeve to bodice seam everywhere but the shouder. Have the dancer put her shoulders back. If a gap appears between the bodice and sleeve, the head is probably too small.
