  1. Thanks for the great tutorial.....

  2. Very nice tutorial just one suggestion,
    sine both fabrics are of same colour the photo where you show how to attach sleeve part is not clear you can mark the photo by arrow to grab our attention n show what you did........Only this needs to be tuned ........Thank You

  3. I have resized the picture to x-large to get better view of sleeve being attached to bodice.

    if you notice how to align the notches of sleeve with shoulder seam joint is also shown in the first picture showing attaching sleeves.

    Hope this clears your doubt

  6. Dear bloggers....

    I am so fond of sewing But not familiar....

    Just started to sew a saree blouse form your helpful drafts...

    Do i really need to add shoulder slope of 3/4 " no matter how much is the shoulder width?

    Even for a 1" shoulder blouse?

    My actual shoulder width is 13 " but i have a designer blouse which has only 10.5 " shoulder width
    but it still fits me perfectly with a very broad round neck. It doesn't look like it has shoulder slope.

    I am now wondering if how armhole, shoulder slope varies with shoulder width?

    Your help is really appeciated...

  7. Is shoulder slope really mandatory? blouse above
    doesnt seem to have slope but draft has a slope of 3/4th slope.

    I have stitched a blouse with 3/4'' slope but its making small tent on my shoulder....

    Any idea how to correct this?

  8. Regarding Shoulder Slope. The Draft i had given is the general shoulder slope. In case of petite frame which is the case if shoulder to shoulder is 13 inches. then try reducing the shoulder slope to 1/2 inch or even 1/4 and check fit before attaching sleeves.

    The draft is a generic one and minor alterations would be required to suit custom body fitting.

    Regarding the query that a blouse with 10.5 inch shoulder fits you fine and has a deep neck - As the neck depth increases the shoulder slope decreases, it can be reduced to bare minimal or can even be no shoulder slope say the shoulder strap is just about 1-1.5 inches.

    Armhole does not vary with neck depth and shoulder strap unless it is going to be sleeveless

    But yes Neck depth & shoulder strap width does affect shoulder slope. I am going on vacation and will be back by first week of Jan 2011. will try do a detailed post on adjustments like this to be made while drafting saree blouse, once i am back.
