One-piece sleeve is used, for example, in classic men and women shirts.

This particular "by armscye length" pattern is handy when you already have your bodice piece or pattern and now need a sleeve which precisely fits the armhole by length.



Not all combinations of sleeve inclination and circumference at the end allow to produce a pattern with required armscye length. Currently the app does not notify you properly in these cases, so when you don't get a PDF you might want to tweak these parameters first.

Only registered users can use this pattern.

The actual length of the armscye curve on your bodice piece (not it's diameter or depth!), this will be the exact circumference of the armscye end of the sleeve.


Desired length of the sleeve from the top point on the shoulder to the end of the sleeve piece. I.e. it's not the length of the model's arm/shoulder, but the length you want for the sleeve.


The circumference (not the diameter!) of the end of the sleeve, which is usually a place where it is connected to the cuff.

Note: we expect the circumference of the sleeve itself, not the model's arm. All the ease you need must be already included, because the end of the sleeve will have the exact length you enter here.


This is the slope of your sleeve relative to the armhole plane, usually 30-60 degrees.

It depends on your design. Usually the greater the angle, the more ease the sleeve has and the easier it is to raise the hands. However smaller angles make the silhouete of the garment appear slimmer.

Note that for too extreme angles it's not possible to find a sleeve pattern with the expected length of the armscye curve, so if you don't get a PDF, then tweak this parameter in the first place.

Always make sure the scale is set to 100% when printing the PDF.
