How to Add a Sleeve Vent on a Lined Sleeve

Threads magazine - 182 - Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016 Issue

In this article from Threads #182 (December 2015/January 2016), Jacque Goldsmith will teach you to add a sleeve vent to a jacket pattern. She writes: When I browse the designer sections in my favorite stores, I am drawn to interesting sleeve details, especially on jackets and coats. A jacket’s sleeve hem, in particular, shows the garment’s quality and the design’s level of detail. A plain, straight sleeve with a standard hem is the simplest and cheapest way to finish a sleeve, while a two-piece vented sleeve adds superior quality, functionality, and distinctive design interest to a jacket. It takes only a few pattern changes to add this sleeve vent to a favorite jacket pattern, but the enhancement instantly upgrades the garment from run-of-the-mill to designer quality.
