Sleeves and cuffs - perhaps more than any other style element of your clothing - offer the opportunity to add unique style and flavor to your clothes, setting them apart from all the rest.
From classic styles such as the Bishop or Puff sleeve, to more modern variations such as a 3-Tiered Bell sleeve, sleeves make a statement about your own personal style.
Are you casual and flirty? Tailored and serious? Exotic or Boho? Your sleeves can say it all.
Sleeves do so much more than simply cover your arms.
They are the "icing on the cake", so to speak - your tailored blouse becomes soft and feminine with full, draping sleeves.
Sleeves are the finishing touch that makes a simple top into a show-stopping garment.
All of these, and more, are included in A Beginner's Guide to Designing Sleeves and Cuffs.
This in-depth tutorial includes:
