Step by step guidelines for designing sleeves
Here is given a complete step by step guide for the cutting and stitching process. Follow the measurement and procedure step by step to get the exact look of the following design. Let’s start.
Sleeves Design Step 1
In the first step of designing sleeves, measure the required pieces. The sleeve’s bottom is 8 inches. Take a strip of buckram. The width of the buckram is 2.5 inches while the length is 60 inches. Fold the buckram strip from the long side. Open the folding. Start marking on the buckram using a measuring tape.
Mark the buckram at the distance of each 2.5 inches. Fold the buckram from each marked point. Now use chalk on the folded buckram. Give curved shape through marking. Cut the marked line using scissors. Follow the given picture.
Sleeves Design Step 2
Continue the cutting process. After cutting the curved mark. Open each folding of the buckram. Now you can see the curved side of the buckram. Prepare a green strip whose length and width are equal to the buckram. Paste the buckram on the green strip. See the pasted buckram from the given picture.
Sleeves Design Step 3
Take a skin-colored strip of cloth. The length and width of this strip are equal to the green strip. Place it under the green strip. Start sewing these two layers form the curved corners of the buckram. Pass the stitch from the middle. Follow the given picture to go through the exact direction of the working.
Sleeves Design Step 4
In the fourth step, complete the stitches around the curved buckram. Separate each curved part by cutting the strip. After cutting each piece of the strip, turn the wrong side inside. Pull out the right side to the outer side. The pieces of strips have been prepared now. One side of each piece is green. The other side is skin-colored. See from the picture of step 4.
Sleeves Design Step 5
Start the fifth step of designing. Fold each prepared piece. Press the pieces using an iron. Stitch the ironed pieces one by one. Arrange the pieces in one row. Stitch them altogether. Arrange the pieces as shown in the given picture above. Double stitch it to tight it.
Sleeves Design Step 6
Take the front right side of the bottom of the sleeve. Place the prepared strip over the bottom. Place the wrong side of the strip above the bottom of the sleeves. Now take a folded green piece of strip. Put it above the first strip.
Now we have three layers. Stitch the three layers using a single stitch. Now turn to the wrong side of the sleeves. Fold the green strip and stitch it as shown in the figure.

In the final step, use lace for the upper side of the sleeves. Put it near the bottom of the sleeves. Attach the lace using stitches. The design of the sleeves is complete. Stitch the sleeves and get fit them. Join the sleeves with the shirt. The final look of sleeves can be seen from the final picture of the designed sleeves.
