Two-Piece Sleeves

gwoman | Posted in Patterns on

I understand that two-piece sleeves are the ideal?  Does anyone know how to convert a one-piece sleeve into the two-piece type? Thanks for any advice.

    Well...... two pieces, may be better that one; depends on what you are making?

    A jacket's two piece sleeve is different than a dress or blouse.

    There was an article in Threads mag a few months ago about sleeves and I think they had some good drawings.  If you don't have that issue....... the basic idea is just divide the sleeve pattern where you want the seam and add a seam allow. to each piece.  The new seam is a good place to add a little extra room for full upper arms!  You can curve the new seam out a little where you need it wider! (on both pieces of course!)

    I re-draw the pieces, don't cut the original sleeve apart!
