Make a clean copy of the final pattern on paper, with a list of measurements beside it for reference. This pattern is the sleeve Block. It is used as a basis for different sleeves. Trying out the sleeve with the bodice Block Trace off the sleeve pattern and cut out a pair of sleeves in calico or sheeting. Mark the Shoulder Point on the sleeve heads. Seam allowances should be added to the pattern, or drawn onto the fabric before cutting. Stitch the back seams, leaving a 10 cm wrist opening, and set the sleeves into your trial bodice: match the Shoulder Point of the sleeve to the shoulder seam of the bodice, and the sleeve seam to the Back Point, easing the fullness of the sleeve head into the armhole.

2/2 twill c. 3/1 twill d. Satin Wool Woollen textiles have been produced from prehistoric times, and worn as outer clothing. Until the 14th century the fleece was generally combed before spinning, which laid the fibres parallel to spin a fairly smooth yarn, often highly twisted. Much of this yarn was woven into twill (Fig 1) or more elaborate weaves. By the end of the 13th century, cloth production in England had dropped off and cloth was being imported from the Low Countries. This was the new 'broadcloth', woven using thread which was carded instead of combed, then spun on a wheel to give a soft, fluffy thread.

Tack again through the seam allowances to secure them, then pin the lining in place. b. Lining a (round) shape, already interlined. Smooth out the lining so that all three layers lie flat on the same grain. Start by pinning the halves and quarters along the straight grain, then place further pins between them. Hem the lining onto the seam allowances of the outer fabric, just inside the folded edge. c. Joining completed parts. If they are too stiff to pin, use bulldog clips or clothes pegs to hold the parts in position.
