0 to 1 - sleeve length

0 to 2 - 1/12 chest + ½”

2 to 3 - 1/6 chest + 1”

1 to 4 - Half round arm +1/2”


First fold twice the cloth such that you get 4 layers one on top of the other. Then mark the measurements on the cloth as shown.

Join 0 to 3 through a curve as shown passing through ‘a’. ‘b’ is the midpoint of ‘a’ and 3. Take ‘c’ 1/2” from ‘b’ and draw another curve as shown. The inner curve through ‘c’ is for the front arm hole and the outer curve through ‘b’ is for the back arm hole. Then leaving ½” allowance along 0 to 3 curve and 1” allowance along 3 to 4 and 1 to 4 lines, cut the cloth. Double fold the extra cloth along the 1 to 4 line and stitch. The sleeves are now ready.
