P.S this same post was shared on my other carrymewithyou blog. I just thought it may feel better at home here.
So i have decided to make a sleeve pattern using my measurement. As mention in a previous post these patterns are for constructing a Shirt in later post. Taking measurement is necessary to achieve this.
Things you will need:
Rulers (curve &straight)
Overarm length- measure with a slight arm bend, I will be using 19.75
Elbow length- 11.25
Wrist bone length- measure from your wrist bone to where your sleeves ends.1 1/2
Bicep- add 1 inch for ease for fit.
Wrist bone- measure around your wrist and add 2 inch so your hand can get in and out.
Sleeve cap height-overarmlength minus underarm length so that’s 13-19.75= 6 3/4
Let’s begin drafting ☺
Place point A-B (Overarm length)which equals 19.75 vertically
A-C equals sleeve cap height place point C with Horizontal line
A-D equals to your elbow length place point D with horizontal line
Extend lines of C,D and B from left to right with a 1/2 measurement of bicep plus 1 inch on each lines.
C-E measures half of bicep plus 1/2 inch
C-F same as C-E
B-G has 2 inches less than C-E
B-H same as B-G
Start connecting points G and E and points H and F
Mark elbow section that is where the d point is place right from d and j is left.
E-K is equilivant to 1/4 of E-C example 7*1/4 =1.75
F-L equals to 1.75 from F
A-M equals to same measurement as E-K which is 1.75
A-N equals to 1.75
place a line 7/8 inches up from K and mark O
Place a line 5/8 inches down from M and mark P
Place a line 3/8 inches down from N and mark Q
Place a next 5/8 inches up from L and mark R
Using a straight ruler touch points O-P and mark midpoints then label S
Repeat same step for Q-R and mark mid point then label T
Using a curved ruler connect points A Q and T pointing downwards.
Drawing top of front sleeve cap with the same curve ruler connecting F R and T pointing upwards
Connect F to L then to the mid line.
Do the same for back sleeve cap A P and S pointing downwards and with the curve ruler connect E O and S upwards. Connect E to K then to the mid line.
Sleeve Dart drafting
U equal half of I-D Mark point
V equal 3/8 inches down from U
W is 1 inch from I
Connect points I to V and V to W
G-X equals 5/8 inches line G-B
H-Z equals 5/8 inches line B-H
From the back sleeve connect W to X and extend line with 1 inches past X and mark Y
Connect Y with Z
From the front sleeve connect Z to J and make sure line is drawn correctly.
Create back sleeve cap notches the top being 1 1/8 inches below point S and the second line spacing 1/2 inches apart.
Create front sleeve cap notch with one line 1 inches below point T
The end ….
