Semi-Fitted Sleeve Pattern Making Tutorial
Learn how to draft the semi-fitted sleeve block using the Basic set in sleeve ePattern. The semi-fitted sleeve block is a very simple pattern and is used to create a far more fitted sleeve. The cuff is reduced by 10cm in total and a dart is opened up on the back of sleeve at the elbow to create a slight bend in the lower arm, to better suits the natural bend of the arm. We also dramatically reshape the curve of the cuff so it creates a smooth line over the wrist.
