Double Puff Sleeves Dun-dun-dun!!!
I think the dresses came out great though!
Ive found that a double puff sleeve is more difficult with sleeves rather than just the double puff sleeve itself. Ill only be showing the short sleeve construction. You could use the same directions for the long sleeve though.
To start off, we cut the lining and trace the center where you will sew in the middle creating one of the puffs.
...and the same with the fashion fabric. Sew the lining and sleeve seam lines separate. Then do a running stitch on the bottom, the line traced in the middle, and the top of fashion fabric.
Pin the bottom lining and bottom part of the sleeve into four sections, gather the excess fabric, then sew.
|Turn right side out.|
Then align the two middle with the tracings you used in the first step.
Gather and pin fashion fabric to lining following the two traced lines. *Can be tricky... was for me*
This is how I section the bottom and the top (Top view). Pin the North, South, East, and West (four corners): seam line, across the seam line and the middles of both pinned sections. Continue the "divide and concurred".
Sew the top of the sleeve with raw edges out.
