Along with the Basic Bodice Block, to construct patterns for a full range of garments (shirts, blouses, dresses, jackets and coats), you will need an appropriately constructed sleeve as well. In this "how to", using similar drafting principles as those employed for the Basic Bodice Block, I show you how to construct a pattern for a sleeve that is matched to the Basic Bodice Block (i.e. in terms of size, seam length, etc.). In addition to the BUST measurement, you will need a SLEEVE length measurement for this to work.



This block construction method has been adapted from the following reference : Winifred Aldrich, Metric Pattern Cutting for Women's Wear, 5th ed., Blackwell Publishing: Oxford, 2008, 215 pp.

Technique Materials

paper, pencil, transparent ruler, French Curve (or dinner plate!)

    On Step 7, the directions say to draw the line from AF, but the illustration appears to connect to AE. Subsequent illustrations also seem to have the line connecting to AE. Which should it be?
