Catalogue of Sorts

What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike

Friday, So

I stitched up the new muslin for the 7673. It’s better, but the sleeve still feels slightly awkward. I wonder if it’s because I have not worn anything, other than an overcoat, with sleeves, without stretch in the fabric, in over a decade. I’m thinking through everything in my closet and everything, even my jackets, have some stretch in the fabric. I can lift my arms, but there is pulling and some lifting of the hem when I do. That’s normal, right?

It’s not constricting and not tight across the back, but I wish I had a picture of where on the body a properly fitted raglan sleeve is supposed to sit. Searching the internet has not been productive–I really ought to get a good book.

I cut it with a short sleeve this time (to spare the scraps) but I think I like it better this way.

Fortunately, I also ordered something from the less steeply discounted Theory sale at Bloomingdales. Likely it won’t fit, but it will be here Monday.
