Have you struggled with sleeves that are too big, too small, or just don’t seem quite right? Join Joe for this hands-on sleeve pattern drafting class. You will be using your very own measurements to create a pattern that is perfect for you. Once you have a basic well-fitting sleeve, you can use this as the basis for any type of sleeve you desire. Joe will guide you through the entire process of measuring, pattern drafting and adjusting. Now that you have your sleeve drafted, it’s time to take a look at how the sleeve and bodice fit together. When dealing with the armhole, patterns may have the same measurement front and back. However, is your body really the same front and back? How will that affect the fit and look of the sleeve?  Let’s bring it all into balance as Joe guides you through the steps involved to truly balance the pattern for a beautiful fit in the armhole area as well as giving you the mobility you desire.
