I looove this top! curious to know if you could do a tuturiol for the shirt itself. I've been looking for a pattern but seem to follow tutoriols better, more straightforward and easier to follow. Thanks a bunch for the sleeves pattern though!

I love this tut - I also love your V neck tute as well. I have a v neck top, but as its getting colder, I have a question. When explaining the sleeves S curve you say, cut it the amount of the hole. So is the eight inches a straight line, or your s line. I did it with the "s" being the amount, but it really seems to ....shoulder-y. mm. thanks.

gee, thanks for the tute! i've been wanting to make sleeved clothing for ages, but have only made tons and tons of pinafores (sleeveless, you see.) but now i can make a shirt with sleeves! one question, though: when you cut the "s" shape for the sleeve, it doesn't matter  what shape it is? i was kinda confused on that part. perhaps i didn't read it right, or something.

The 8 inches would be the s line, but if your fabric is stretchy, you can knock off   half an inch or so and stretch it to fit while you are pinning/sewing.

Then again, winging it/following tutes rather than using commercial patterns is not an exact science, and we aren't all the same shape, so if it doesn't work for you, the best way is to get some cheapy fabric/old clothes and experiment until it does Smiley

I might be having a senior moment, but I don't think i understand the question  Sad

I realize this is a post from three years ago, but thank you for the tute!  I'm doing some costumes for this summer and was terrified by sleeving - your tute makes it so much easier to understand!
