Projects & Patterns, Tips & Techniques
Full-fashioned shoulder shaping is a technique used in ready-to-wear sweaters to place the shoulder seam of a set-in-sleeve sweater behind the natural shoulder line on the body. This creates a comfortable, flattering fit as well as the opportunity to use decorative shaping elements along the back shoulder line. In this class we’ll discuss the architecture of full-fashioned shoulder shaping, practice working fully fashioned decreases, and learn how to convert a regular set-in sleeve pattern to use this shaping.
