Pattern paper
Pencil and eraser
Curve rulers
Straight ruler

You will also need the armhole circumference 17" (medium size)
Full arm circumference 12" (medium)
Short sleeve length 7.5" (standard)
Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 12:45pm On Sep 02, 2016
Line up the shoulder of your front and back bodice pattern to make sure that they are properly lined up

Take the measurement of the arm hole circumference

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 4:28pm On Sep 02, 2016
Draw your guide line and intersect it at the centre with a straight line. Mark this intersection point A.

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 4:34pm On Sep 02, 2016
Measure and mark out 1/3 of the armhole circumference along this line. This becomes point "B".
Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 5:26pm On Sep 02, 2016
Label one side of the line the front and the other side the back.

Continue constructing the cap line of the sleeve.

Measure half of the armhole circumference place one end of the tape on point A and the other end on the line on point B.
Mark this point. B1 and B2 for front and back respectively. Then draw a straight line to join point A to B1 and do same for B2.

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 5:32pm On Sep 02, 2016
Mark out 1/3 of the lineAB1 in two places and do same for line AB2.

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 5:34pm On Sep 02, 2016
Label these two new points C and D for the front and C1 and D2 for the back.
Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 5:38pm On Sep 02, 2016
At point A Mark 3/4" towards the front and1/2" towards the back. Label these points A1 and A2 respectively.

From C3 go up 3/4" in a diagonal manner.

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 6:01pm On Sep 02, 2016

From D1 on the back part move up 1/2" along the line and mark this new point F1
Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 6:24pm On Sep 02, 2016
Get the midpoint between B1 and D on the front side and Mark this new point G

Start joining your points using a curved ruler

On the front part of the sleeve pattern

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 6:51pm On Sep 02, 2016

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 6:57pm On Sep 02, 2016
Measure and Mark out the sleeve length. I am using 7.5" as a standard

Extend this point by drawing a line.

Mark out 1" for the seam allowance.

Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 7:01pm On Sep 02, 2016
Cut out your pattern

Measure B1 to B2 this should be equivalent to the circumference of your fullest arm 12" for the medium plus 1/2" for easing.
Re: Sewing for beginners by marylandcakes: 7:03pm On Sep 02, 2016
Fold the seam allowance inwards
