Pattern Drafting Part 2: Creating a Sleeve Sloper

You've made the bodice and now you need sleeves. From the sleeve sloper you will be able to make a variety of different sleeve types including tailored, flutter and puffy all different lengths. This sloper will work no matter what the season you are designing for.

This class is good to take after finishing your bodice sloper so you can create sleeves to fit the armholes.

In this class you will learn how to take detailed measurements of the arm and plot them on paper.  You will also learn how to get ease in the sleeve and how to design for the bend in the arm. You will complete a sleeve sloper, talk about how to add seam allowance and the need to sew a muslin to check the fit.

The class may run out of time to sew, please anticipate on having homework.
