How to draw the sleeve pattern

  • A-C: From point A measure 4.5" and mark point C .This is a standard measurement.
  • C-B: From point C measure  [sleeve length  minus 4.5"] =3.5"
  • B-F: From point B measure 1.5" and mark point F.This for the fold.
  • C-D:From point C measure [shoulder /2=8] and  mark point D
  • B-E: From point B measure[base of sleeve /2  +0.5"=6.5"] and mark point E
  • A-D: Join point A and D
  • D-E: Join point D and E
  • H: Find the midpoint of line A-D and mark point H
  • I:  Find the mid point in line H-D and mark point I
  • J: Now measure 0.5 inches from point H upwards in 90 degree angle  and mark J
  • A-J-I: Now join point A ,J and I  in a curved line
  • F-G: Measure 1.5" from point B upwards and then find the width from that point to line D-E. Use that measurement and measure from point F and mark point G. The idea behind in doing this is ; we want line E-G  to align with line D-E when we fold the pattern at line B-E upwards.
The final step is to cut the pattern .Therefore you cut along line A-J-I-D-E-G-F-B-C-A.
