I just LOVE this blouse. Its not something I would typically like but theres just something about it!

Does anyone know how I would go about making the sleeves like that? I think I have an idea of how I could but it's probably not the same way that they went about it and I want it to look very similar when its done. (obviously I can't afford to buy this...I dont think I can really afford anything from Anthropologie! Shocked) Sometimes they have some really cute pieces though!


Today, today its all or nothing, all the way, my praise goes out to you, yah all my praise goes out to you.

I would say to use a kimono type cut sleeve, cut larger along the arm holes than needed, then gather them using a lose straight stitch then sew onto the body of your shirt.

its a raglan sleeve,  and I would think the arm hole in the body is  a little longer than normal, I think the sleeve is a full-length or longer sleeve, that has only had the underneath seam sewn together for about 1/3 to 1/4 of its length, the rest, forms a large arm opening, is gathered as amraann says, into the arm hole. the top opening appears to be finished with piping (cut a facing to match the top and insert piping between the facing and the garment)

the sleeve bottom appears to be gathered into a small band

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.
