i have a short sleeve pattern (a single pattern piece rather than a two-piece sleeve) which I want to lengthen to a three-quarter length – it will fall a couple of inches below my elbow.
So I have been following instructions on how to make room for the elbow: I have to slash across from the back edge of the pattern extension where the elbow will sit, and spread that edge by an inch.
Then I should place a dart, a tuck, or ease in the extra length that results from the back edge being an inch longer than the front edge.
My question is, where do I place the dart, tuck or ease?
Any help, or clues appreciated!!! Thanks very much.
