Paris Frocks At Home - 1930 (Part 2)

Reclaim worn sleeves.

"So often sleeves wear out before their time. Butterick has prepared - special patterns to replace them.

If a sleeve is worn at the elbow, cut it off here and combine it with lace or chiffon (Ill. 155), or add a flare below the elbow, (Ill. 156). If it requires a whole new sleeve, give it dolman sleeves of contrasting fabric in matching color-chiffon sleeves for a velvet frock or velvet sleeves for a crepe frock."

  1. Cool to see the different kinds of sleeves. My fav is the left one in the second picture. I had sleeves like that on my wedding dress. Very cool book. Thanks for sharing!
