    I did this to draft sleeve for sleeveless dress. Good guideline but glad I did muslin. I don’t know if I measured wrong but there was too much height in sleeve cap. I ended up measuring the armscye and added 1 inch for ease. Using flexible ruler I placed on curve of seam on sleeve pattern and adjusted the height decreasing vertically by 1 1/2 inch. Better fit.

      Unfortunately I can’t help you with that it could have been either ways as I wasn’t drafting this technique merely uploaded it to help others as my downsizing of sizes turned out brilliantly several times now. It takes a lot of time and effort though I would prefer if the patterns would include a wider range of sizes as default :)

      Honestly…I got a headache after a while reading it. However, once you get a grip on it…once… :D
