Line D to E is the hand circumference. I use hand circumference instead of wrist so that I don’t need to add buttons on the sleeve.

Hmong Fitted Shirt Pattern Drafting Part 1

Earlier this year, I successfully made my own Hmong outfit! The post of the finished product will be posted soon, so stay tuned. After making a traditional Hmong shirt, I wanted to try making fitted Hmong shirt but I couldn’t really find a pattern. So after doing a lot of research on Youtube, I decided to try to draft my own pattern.

I can’t wait to actually try it out on cloth and see how it turns out. Let me know if you want me to breakdown how I drew my pattern. If there is enough interest, I can do a follow-up tutorial on pattern drafting and how to adjust for your own size.
