The series on drafting patterns for kids’ clothes at ikat bag continues! In this installment, Jen from My Measuring Tape shows how to adapt a basic sleeve block for other styles. Once you have the basic sleeve block, a few simple changes can turn it into a roll up sleeve, a gathered sleeve, puff sleeve, a puff-top sleeve, a puff-bottom sleeve, or a bell sleeve. And yes, she shows how to adapt the basic sleeve pattern to make every single one of those styles! Go to the tutorial.
