Sewing Hint for the Day

Generally, all set-in sleeves fit into all armscyes if the following conditions apply:  The sleeve depth from the shoulder to the armpit is ½ inch longer than the depth of the armscye.  The length of the curved upper sleeve seam is at least 1 ½ inches longer than the circumference of the armscye.  (You will have to adjust gathers or pleats according to the circumference of the armscye.)
