I made a block pattern for myself, but I'm getting into real difficulties drawing up a sleeve block to fit the armholes I've drafted.
(I'm not sure if this is the right place for this; sorry if it's not!)
The block itself fits *perfectly*, and I've made countless good sleeveless dresses from it (adapting the armscye accordingly). But whenever I try to draft a sleeve block (and then try the pieces out in muslin), there is *always* an excess of fabric in the sleeve head, so it is too big and doesn't fit right into the armscye. I've had the same result from using drafting directions from different authors - Winifred Aldrich, these two...
...and others I can't recall. Always the same, no matter whether I add ease or not! I'm at the end of my tether with this, and I can't carry on wearing sleeveless dresses for the rest of my dressmaking days. Any suggestions?
