How to Draft and Adjust Sleeves Sewing Pattern

From the Blogger: "I have here my most favourite tutorial ever! I’ve basically gone from sleeves skeptic to sleeves believer. I love drafting sleeves, I love making sleeves, I love sleeves! Sleeves are the best. With this tutorial, made specifically for beginners, I make drafting sleeves ridiculously easy. So easy, you’ll soon become a sleeves convert like me!

Ever since I discovered this new love, I’ve tried to incorporate sleeves into as many of my garments as possible. This tutorial also includes how to adjust your sleeves, covering techniques such as walking the sleeve cap around the armhole to check whether or not it will fit once sewn in. Depending on whether the cap is too big or too small, I show ways to adjust these so that it can fit perfectly into your armhole."

Ive found this to be one of the best tutorials on drafting sleeve patterns. Now the presenter whisks through it at a rate of knots, so its one of those tutorials you will need to keep pausing and going back to after youve completed that next step. But it really is very comprehensive and I especially like the bit where she shows how to make sure the sleeve will fit the armsythe, and how to adjust the pattern if it doesnt.
