Set-in sleeves have long been considered one of the more difficult tasks in designing a sweater. Although proper fitting sleeves are challenging, there are guidelines that make this a skill that can be learned. If you can design a basic tank top, then you can design a sweater with a fitted set-in sleeve. Start with a fabric swatch, take your measurements and learn the calculations required to design a set-in capped sleeve that will fit—every time! Class will move quickly so it is assumed that students are already familiar with basic design concepts such as gauge, ease and garment construction.
