Drawstring sleeves dress


A very easy pattern manipulation for a stunning effect!

Choose you favorite crisp fabric - taffeta would look faboulous, but also a shirt cotton will look great - and start sewing this beauty!

Step 1

Start from a basic block with dolman sleeve and no darts. widen the neckline, draw the new sleeve length and a slanted slash line in the body.

Then draw some slash lines from it to the sleeve hem.

Step 2

Cut the extra and then through the lines.

Step 3

Spread the pieces to give fullness to the sleeve.

Step 4

Redraw both pieces and mark the gathering/drawstring at the sleeve hem.

You’re done!
