Grading the mannequin arm is as follows:
a.At each of the lines pointing out from the original arm pattern piece at the top portion, (line marked 3) extend out by .03 mm per size, mark that point with a dot.
b.At each of the lines pointing out from the original arm pattern piece at the bottom portion, (line marked 2) extend out by .02 mm. Mark that point with a dot.
c. At top center of upper arm pattern piece (line marked 4), extend up by .04 mm. Mark that point with a dot as well.
d.Using a see-thru ruler and measuring from your new graded point mark a point on either side of the center grain line at .07 mm. This area is designated by a circle. Connect these points. This creates a plateau at the very top of the upper arm piece as indicated in the previous post.
