copying sleeves

nance | Posted in General Discussion on

i’ve loved the articles lately on copying existing patterns. but how do you copy a sleeve without taking the garment apart? any help would be great. this is my first entry though i’ve been learning from all the questions for a long time. thanks! and i love threads …yum yum!

    Lay the sleeve as flat as possible with one of the folds being the seam line. Mark the other fold with a row of pins. Now trace the folded sleeve on both sides and the bottom if possible.
    Then flip it over at the pin line and trace the seam line again. To get the armscye curve you can stick pins through it and mark those points by either the pin prick method or by reaching under and making a pencil mark . If you put enough pins into the paper it will give you a line to follow. Don't forget to add seam allowance and hem allowance.
