Glenda's teaching style is clear and concise. I have read over and over again to stitch the sleeve with the sleeve toward the feed dogs to allow the machine to ease the stitching for you. I have been sewing forever (50+ years) and I say no way, I have always stitched the way Glenda does, so you can manipulate as you go - and I get great results. I love the way Glenda doesn't take "short cuts" (as is so popular today) and her results are stellar. Thank you for teaching new seamstresses to do things the right way to get beautiful results.

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.
