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. I even secretly added hidden sleeves to my little red dress…
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.
These sleeves can be used in conjunction with my simple bodice block tutorial, which I also created for beginners.
Definitely give it a go and let me know what you think! If you have any questions, you know how to reach me! Good luck!
Enjoy! And feel free to comment, share, like and SUBSCRIBE!
