just finished my first regency gown! I love it! However, I have a question regarding fit. Currently I have limited movement in the arm. I can only raise arms so high without it feeling tight. Should I add length to the sleeve band or modify the sleeve itself or possibly add gussets for the next one? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Roxanne! The easiest solution is to make the sleevebands wider to allow for more movement. A less comfortable (but effective) alternative is to actually make the armscyes SMALLER, believe it or not. They will hit right up in the armpit but allow for you to raise your arms higher. But I'd say try the wider armband first!
