Today's sleeve is a twist on a very traditional sleeve, the Petal Sleeve. Since it's a twist, I'm calling this sleeve
The Twisted Petal Sleeve
As you can see, the sleeve is exactly like a petal sleeve. All I have done is lengthen the underarm area so that it becomes a strap that will wrap around the arm.
To draft this sleeve, begin with the basic sleeve pattern. Remember, we are using Butterick 5678 as our base pattern, but any basic sleeve will work.
It's a little difficult to see in the picture below, but the underarm notch is clipped and the underarm notches on both sides will just meet in the center of the underarm seam.
This treatment to the sleeve gives the look of a cuff without an actual cuff being added. It also gives a nice little peek-a-boo interest to the sleeve
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
