Straight Sleeve Pattern Making Tutorial
In this straight sleeve pattern making tutorial, we show you how to draft the basic straight sleeve block using the Basic set in sleeve ePattern. The basic straight sleeve block is a very simple pattern and is used to add very slight shaping to the sleeve, to create a more contoured fit. You can use this tutorial to add more contouring to your sleeve, by reducing the circumference of the elbow and cuff. You can also create a 3/4 length sleeve and short sleeve, by cutting the pattern along the “Short sleeve” or “3/4 length sleeve” guidelines.
