Someone asked that this be rebloggable so HURR YOU GO
Patterns are really dumb in telling you to finish the body of an outfit, then finish the sleeve, then attach a circle to a circle. It’s possible to do, don’t get me wrong, but unless you have a lot of experience it’s sometimes very aggravating trying to evenly distribute the sleeve around the “hole” cut out for it and match up the seams under the armpit!
(Please note…some patterns, especially to achieve tailored looks, require you to do it the traditional way. Don’t use this method for fashion school assignments or super-complex garments as it will probably screw up the way it ends up fitting in the end. This is mostly for the use of cosplayers to make their job a little easier.)
SO THIS IS WHAT I DO.
PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE SOURCE OR REPOST, THANK YOU
This is a great tutorial; it’s how I always attach my sleeves! C: (and it’s actually a legit way to do it, it’s how we made our mens’ shirts in my fashion class, haha. As long as you finish it with a nice seam it’ll work!)
I always find sleeves the most troublesome thing to draft/modify, so this is awesome!
