Pattern Details

One question that I get all the time is how to put sleeves on a sleeveless dress. It seems like clothing companies these days really want us to skip the sleeves - either because they are forcing the style upon us or because it saves them money to not sew on sleeves! Well, you are super lucky if you sew because I'm going to show you how to add a cute little sleeve to any dress. And it would work on a sleeveless top too. This little sleeve isn't bulky so it will still lay nicely if you want to layer it under a cardigan or jacket. This worksheet has instructions for drafting a sleeve to fit any size sleeveless dress - from baby to women's. Visit my blog post here for step by step photos too:

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
