In this tutorial, I’ll show you how i made my bell sleeved top. I’ve been a fan of the bell sleeve, lantern sleeve, flared sleeve, basically any voluminous sleeve since i started learning patterns. This is my first bell sleeve to make though, and it is very basic. As you probably know by now, i like recycling fabrics from old clothes to make new ones. This minimizes wastage of perfectly good fabrics, and is very inexpensive. I made this top from a maxi dress i found at the fleece market. The stripes and colors drew me to it, and the fabric is a really nice and soft cotton. Below is a fast forward version if you prefer to watch the video on how i made it.
If the music in the video makes your ears hurt (lol), here’s the text/photo format:
I hope the instructions were clear, and that perhaps you learnt something new.
That was the final outcome. I think I’ll make another one of this, i like this style alot. ))
