  1. Ooooh, I’ll give this a try! I have inserted sleeves without pins on muslins using what I can only describe as a magic trick I saw Janet Pray do, which consisted of putting the curved sleeve part close to the feed dogs (as you have done in your tutorial) and using your left hand to manouver the excess fabric, putting it between the two lairs. No pins! An act of faith, if you ask me, but it works when there is not too much easing. I was so taken aback that I was too petrified to try it on the actual garment!!! I told myself that in the interest of Science I would set in the sleeve in the traditional way and compare results. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference.
    I’ve just discovered your blog and I’m thrilled! Thanks!
