Please feel free to PIN and SAVE/download above image. It can be printed on an A4 size size sheet easily. Hope it is helpful for you to make your own pattern.
I always use a ready dress to make my pattern for sleeves of a piece of paper. I just lay the dress sleeve flat inside out on a paper and mark along the edges and cut out the pattern.
On a dress body, I prefer to put broad but short darts(here 1 inch by 2 inches) in front and slender long darts(here 1⁄2 inch by 3 inches) at the back of body from waist line up. I keep the darts equidistance from the midline, just bellow the bust in front and bellow scapula or wing bones at the back.
Do come and visit me in my next post. Its great to have you around.
