I’m going to apologize, but I don’t yet have images for the sleeves, so this is going to have to be just text. If you sew, you know what a sleeve cap should look like. If you don’t get something that looks like one, you probably got it wrong.
- Down the center of the paper, draw a line the entire length of the sleeve you want.
- At the bottom, draw a line the length of the wrist/palm measurement (or however wide you want the sleeve to be).
- From the top, draw a shallow diagonal line measuring the armhole divided by two on each side.
- Connect the ends of the lines so you have a wide, shallow triangle. That line should be at least as long as your upper arm measurement. (Unless you have larger upper arms. I’m a size 22 and lift weights. I don’t have to kludge this even if I don’t have dainty arms).
- Draw a line from the bottom corners to the wrists so you have the bottom sleeve shape.
- Smooth out the upper point of the triangle so you have a smooth sleeve cap.
- Add 5/8″ to 1″ all around the pattern for your seam allowance. (I prefer a narrower one, but that’s up to you!)
This sleeve will require some skill at easing the sleeve cap. I’ll do my best to get a picture up to clarify later.
