Do not see anything missing in the video.
After drafting the sleeves pattern, measure the front and back curves and see if it matches with the body pattern. If less/more - increase/decrease the ease and redraw the curves of the sleeves.
What is your actual armhole measurement? What is the measurement you get when you measure the front and back curves on the pattern?
The distance from shoulder edge to the biceps or armround.
This would work with darts garment.
Now we do not conduct regular classes.
Can you please upload an image of the issue you are explaining?
You are welcome.
If you apply armhole measurement when drafting the pattern, after you draw the curve it would be too big. Instead when you apply armround measurement and then when you draw the curves, it will give you your armhole curve measurement.
If you are getting extra in the armhole [after body armhole measurement plus ease] you would need to shift the chest line further up. Each body type is different and each pattern the changes could be different. You may shift the chest line till your get your armhole measurement plus ease given on the chest line.
As the body pattern armhole is more, first correct it by shifting the chest line up and redrawing the curve till you get your bpdy armhole measurement and then correct the sleeves to match with the body pattern armhole by increasing or decreasing the ease and redrawing the curves.
The Chest line needs to be shifted up for both front and back. 1/4" to 1/2" excess does not matter much. However if you wish to make it exact, you may further shift. Yes the armhole curves need to be redrawn for both front and back.
