MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep

Step Description
1 For this lesson, you would require a white unlined pattern paper measuring 20” (50.8cm) wide by 28” (71.2cm) long.
2A Our first step in drafting a sleeve block is to extract the armscye measurement from our single-breasted jacket draft. And we do that using a tape measure. So, do remember that we are not taking this line into consideration so there’s a crossmark there. We are starting for the red line that we’ve established.
2B And I am going to measure using my tape measure all the way along, as you can see. Make sure that when you hit the dart you don’t consider the measurement from here to here, because that’s an intake. And then you skip that, so my measurement up until the dart is 10” (25.4cm). And beyond the dart, we are going to measure from here to here is ½” (1.3cm). So, my total measurement for the front is 10.5” (26.7cm), and I can write that right here.
