Fitted Sleeve From Straight Sleeve Sloper

In this beginner lesson, you will learn how to convert your straight sleeve sloper into a fitted sleeve sloper. We will teach you the technique of how to ‘slash and spread’ the sleeve to form an elbow dart, so that you can use this sleeve when your design calls for a sleeve fitted at the elbow. This sleeve is the foundation for a number of other sleeve styles and is an absolute must for your sloper collection.

Try our other sleeve lessons including, the Petal sleeve, the Bell sleeve, the Puff sleeve and many more.

The sleeve sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Straight Sleeve Sloper.

Step Description
1 For this lesson, you will need to prepare three blocks of white unlined pattern paper measuring 16″ (40.6cm) wide by 28” (71.1cm) long.
2 The first step, is to draw in your sleeve guidelines. With your yardstick or L-Square, draw a line in the middle of the paper, in the length direction. This is the sleeve center.
3 Measure down 9” (22.9cm) from the top of the paper and square a line across the width of the paper, perpendicular to the center sleeve line. This is the sleeve’s bicep line. Repeat these steps for the other 2 pattern blocks.
