How I made this sleeve detail

Sleeve pattern piece with lines marked where final pleats will fall

Slash and spread to depth of pleats, and draw in pleat guidelines. I have used a dotted line for the valley fold here

Fold pattern pieces along pleat lines and trace sleeve head line with tracing wheel
