How to make room for Full Upper Arms

list In Alterations & Pattern hackings On

If you find the Jude sleeves too narrow for your biceps and need to make room for your upper arms, follow this tutorial :

1 - Trace or cut the front sleeve in your size.

2 - Draw a line from the arm opening to the bottom curve. Cut through this line leaving a small paper hinge.

3 - Now the pattern is slashed and ready to be opened up the desired amount. Carefully tape down your pattern to another sheet of paper.

4 - Re-draw the line from the sleeve opening.

5 - Trace your new sleeve. You can compare the original sleeve to your new sleeve.

Repeat for the back sleeve.

Now that you modified the sleeves, you need to alter the bodice. Drop the underarm point the same amount that you opened the sleeve. Draw the new line. 

Repeat for the back bodice.

Voilà, c'est terminé !
