Hello world! Glad that Seamly has a nice group of forum-goers, and I’m now glad to be one of them. I’ve been having a fun time starting to pattern draft, and I LOVE the capabilities of Seamly to save and update measurements.
My question and additional information, however, is as follows: I am following the Helen Joseph-Armstrong book of pattern making for fashion design and have successfully created a basic dress block of my top. My eventual goal is to create a pattern for a leather jacket. I’ve just started the draft of the sleeve though, and it’s stumping me. How do I check if the arm will fit into the armhole of the block? What measurement do I look at?
Sorry if my work is… a mess;;; The left 2 pieces are the blocks with the additional allowances for the jacket base over them. The right is the start of the sleeve block. Does it look… correct? The length of the armhole is turning out WAY longer than the sleeve. Shouldn’t the sleeve ease be MORE than the armhole measurement??
