Short Flare Sleeve Draft

In this beginner lesson, you will learn how to create a short, flared sleeve using your basic straight sleeve sloper. You will learn how to use the ‘slash and spread’ method, which is the basic principle for adding fullness to sleeves. Learning the principles of slashing is the foundation for creating fullness. You will learn how to use your pattern drafting tools and how to properly true a pattern. Once you have mastered his lesson you will be able to implement the slash and spread technique to other garments and create full skirts, tops, jackets, pants and shorts.

You can try your new slash and spread skills by viewing other lessons such as the Short Puff Sleeve and the Long Bell Sleeve.

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