I hope this post finds you all having a lovely weekend.
Today we are going to do a very simple sleeve, the dolman sleeve and give it a very big twist.
The Basic Dolman Sleeve
You can take a your favorite t-shirt pattern, a dress pattern, even a jacket pattern and turn it into this basic dolman sleeve.Begin with your bodice pattern.
For the sleeve that we will be doing today, we will need a rather deep underarm curve. The curve begins just below the approximate elbow and curves back to the waistline of the bodice. I have drawn in the red line to show that this can also be a shallow curve if you like. Just remember, the deeper the curve, the more comfortable the top will be.The basic dolman sleeve. This sleeve offers a lot of ease for wearing, in other words, it is really comfortable.
The Twisted Dolman Sleeve
So now, let's have some fun. I'm sure you've seen lots of pictures on Pinterest of all the twisted tops that are designed by Japanese designers. They are so much fun and I've been wanting to give one a try. So here's my version.
