Hello everyone, I'll start by showing you the simple sleeve then we'll move to puffy sleeve. You don't need biscep length for now, you can introduce biscep length when you have known the basic sleeve.

Required measurements
This is a pattern for short sleeve that stops around the elbow.
*Armhole depth ÷2
*Sleeve length
*Round sleeve (R.arm) ÷2
*Round sleeve (R.elbow) ÷2

Hope its clear to this point?

Hello everyone! I'm sorry just bear with me, this teaching will take longer than usual. My exams starts on Wednesday that is the reason why I've not finished the explanation. I'll definitely post the remaining but it might be once a week, pls forgive me. Thanks.

Sleeve pattern

Step 1
Measure downwards from the first line, 2.5inches to get the slope length line. Measure from the first line downwards again to get the sleeve length line as shown in the diagram. The center is on fold.

Step 2
Remember we are using the derrived measurements from the calculated measurements now.
On the slope length line, measure your round arm and mark with a dot. On the sleeve length line, measure your round elbow and mark with a dot. Use a ruler to connect the two dots as shown in the diagram.

Step3
On the slope length line, measure horizontally from the center to the dot and locate the middle (that is, middle of the round arm), use dotted lines to mark the middle upwards as shown in the diagram.
Measure vertically the distance between the first and second line, (that is, middle of the slope length), use dotted lines to mark the middle.
The point where the two dotted lines meet is what we need, use a dot to mark that point.

Step6
Use a tape rule or flexible ruler to measure the slope we just made (step4 + step5) if it will fit your required armhole, if not, extend the slope length line and use a French curve to reconnect it back to the sleeve length line as shown in the diagram.

Puffy sleeve
The measurement is the same with normal sleeve. Also choose your desired measurement for the puff, you could use 7inches.

Step1
Pattern a normal sleeve but leave enough space at the top of the sleeve for the puff.

Re: Anybody Can Sew Like A Professional! by Bellarita: 2:43pm On Aug 13, 2016
Step2
Measure your desired puff length above the normal sleeve and draw an horizontal line.
Use a French curve to connect the line you've drawn to the mid point of the normal sleeve.
At the mid point, draw a small curve like the one i labelled AB.
Step 2b shows what it should look like

My definition of Creativity:
It is the ability to express that which you have been able to create in your mind with your hands.
Many are the eyes that looks, but only few sees.-Myles Munroe.

Fashion, this is a very distinctive and constant trend in the style in which a particular person dresses himself or herself. It is the prevailing styles in behavior and the newest creations of clothing or textile designers. That's what Fashion is.
It is not all clothes that suits all shapes even if they are the perfect size, they are not always the perfect shape.
It takes somebody with a keen sense of fashion to fit you into a befitting apparel.

Have you ever wondered why most brides wear white dresses on their wedding day. They choose white dresses to symbolize the purity of their soul.

I also sew wedding dresses that compliment what they are intended for.


I am a freelance seamtress/Fashion designer.•

I also give training to individuals willing to learn sewing. .
