Learn how to create sleeves with cuffs using the Shape Builder tool.
- [Woman] Now it's time to add sleeves.…We can do this the same way…we did on the t-shirt and the polo shirt.…We're going to switch back to the direct selection tool,…the white arrow without the plus sign.…We're going to click on the sleeve,…copy it,…paste in back,…right-click, join.…Let's zoom out just a little bit…so we can see the whole arm.…We're going to add those two anchor points,…one up here, one down here,…Back to the white arrow,…click in-between the anchor points…and we're going to drag the sleeve…all the way down to the bottom of the sleeve template.…
Now we need to divide the cuff,…because there's going to be a cuff…at the bottom of this sleeve.…We're going to grab the pen tool.…I'm going to draw a line where I want the cuff to be divided,…make sure it has no fill.…We can then, with the black arrow,…select the sleeve and the cuff.…We're going to use the shape builder tool,…and we're going to go ahead and click…to separate the cuff,…and then option or alt + click…to get rid of these little pieces that are sticking out…
