I am really enjoying seeing the variety of sleeves being presented by Fashion designers for Fall/Winter 2019. And this is being carried through to sewing patterns for those of us who love to sew. As a DIY individual, we have the advantage of a custom fitted garment. This is usually available to those who can afford it. But as a DIY, a Sewer, you can be equipped with the knowledge to alter for a custom fit.
