Hey! it's Saturday and I'm actually getting the post up on the right day. Might be a trend!!!!
Hope you are all having a lovely start to your weekend. It's beautiful here in Chicago and as soon as I get this post up, I'm out to my garden to do a little digging.
I had a lot of fun creating this sleeve and I'm really looking forward to getting the body of the jacket made. The sleeve actually stands out away from the shoulder and then tapers back to the wrist. I used the sleeve pattern from Butterick 5678 as my block. I'm calling this sleeve
The Terraced Sleeve
For the middle section, cut from the top style line to the next style line once again being careful not to cut through the line.
Draw a vertical line on your paper. Match the center of both pattern pieces to this line and begin spreading. I spread 1/2" between each section. Sections 5 and 6 are in the middle of the pattern pieces. There is a 1/4" spread on either side of the center line which totals 1/2". Be sure to add seam allowance before cutting the pieces out.
So that's it! The sleeve takes a little time, but it is so easy to do. Like I said in the beginning, I can't wait to get the body of the jacket finished.
