Thanks, Ingrid. I think I'll go ahead and do the sleeves as I prefer, then! Since I've already bound off the shoulders, a 3-needle bind off might not be what I want, but since this is a size large,...

Question Modifying Construction Steps - Tilted Duster?

I've got all the pieces (except the skirt) ready to assemble for the Tilted Duster (IK Fall 2007). I like my set-in sleeves much better if I do them before I do the side seams. However, the pattern...
