Just popping by to let you know I am still working on those ballet costumes!
Just to prove it, here's a nice gusset in a ballet sleeve. It is basically the same concept as my regular grown on gusset for a two piece sleeve, just with more range of motion. I had a great talk with my colleague Evan before I started this project as he has oodles of experience cutting for ballet. I took his advice to heart and I have been very happy with the results. Thanks Evan!

In case you were wondering, the under sleeve gusset is basically as high as the top of the sleeve head

Now we just have to get the two extra costumes done that were added and soon they will be ready to be shipped.
I'll be back soon.


  1. If you get a chance, I would LOVE to see the patterns for your grown-on sleeve gussets. Improving range of motion for dance is something I work on.
