I am blanking on the sewing word for “armhole” right now. Oh well, I’m not that technical anyways! I’ve had a few requests to share how I widened the armholes on my Colette Laurel. So here we go……
I cut a 0 for my Laurel. See the pink arrows? Go ahead and trim the armhole down to a bigger size. I trimmed down to the 4. I could probably even go more.
Second and last fix….I told you this was easy!
See the pink highlighter? I added a 1/2 where the star is. Take a sheet of paper, bring it out from the pattern a 1/2 inch.
Slide the paper in until it meets the end of the sleeve and is back in line with the original pattern.
Do this on both sides and tape down. You can add more than 1/2 if you need it!
Does this make sense? I hope so!
Please let me know if you have any questions! I hope this helps!
I have some fabric on the way to make another Laurel! Can’t wait!
