I have just started using the Lutterloh System for pattern making and have had an awful time in several patterns with the sleeves and arm holes. They are so small and require quite an enlargement for me and another person I sew for. Has anyone who uses this system had the same problem? If so, did you make a new sleeve pattern to be used interchangeably with the other patterns or how do you handle the small sleeve and sleeve holes? I thought the Lutterloh system would help eliminate some of my fitting problems, but so far, I have spent more time on the sleeve problem than I did with the commercial pattern fitting. At least, the sleeves fit. I must say, the upper chest area of the patterns fit great, but the sleeves are giving me fits.
