This is the final outline of the sleeve. Note that the waist line on the bodice block marks the location of the elbow on the sleeve. This is a one piece sleeve, a different drafting procedure is used to construct a two-piece sleeve. I hope this "how to" is useful to you!

    Thanks for these. I’m going to try drafting a sleeve for a sleeveless dress. Will these instructions work for any bodice that needs a sleeve?
