In this post, I’m going to show you how I altered sleeves on a dress pattern.
I took the sleeves on the dress pattern above…
and put them on the dress pattern below…
I put one dress pattern on top of the other, lining up the neckline as best as I could.
I put tissue paper (confiscated from a happy birthday gift wrap bag) between the two pattern pieces. The pattern underneath is the one with larger sleeves that I wanted to use.
I pinned the top pattern piece to the tissue paper.
I traced the bigger sleeve onto the tissue paper with a permanent marker. I tried a pencil, but couldn’t see the markings.
I cut out the tissue paper pattern.
Tune in tomorrow for more steps in altering a pattern.
