Do I ever love sleeves! This week, the Sew Liberated Clara Dress gets her sleeves. The sleeve that was designed for the dress has a keyhole opening and ties.
This sleeve offers you the chance to customize the sleeve by adding contrasting trim.
For the sew along, I decided to show another option. Last week we discussed how to add a small ruffle to the collar. This week we're adding a ruffle to the sleeve and eliminating the keyhole opening. The sleeve ruffle is a nice complement to the collar ruffle.
This week's blog post covers both the keyhole sleeve as well as the non keyhole version. You can find the post here, http://www.sewnews.com/blogs/sewing/2014/05/12/clara-dress-sew-along-week-4-sleeves/ and the video is attached below.

Next week we will attach the skirt. I'll show you a very easy method that allows you to easily adjust the waist once the dress is finished. We will also add a lining to the skirt. The skirt includes side seam pockets, so next week's post will be packed with information!
