MY DIY BELL SLEEVE TUTORIAL

HI DARLINGS! I made THIS DRESS  few weeks back and you guys loved the sleeve so I thought I would show you how to quickly make it with any commercial sleeve pattern you may be working on.

I used a stupid calculation that hurt my head, lol then I came across THIS SITE By Hand London and was like “mind blown” she has a RADIUS CALCULATOR for making circle skirt (genius) but you can use it for anything like a half circle for the sleeve I made HERE.

 

Here is how to do it… Grab a sleeve pattern, cut it so that it hits above your elbow and measure along the hem.

now take the “waist” radius given and that is what we are going to use. I love this app because it also gives you a cutting diagram and the calculation has 5/8″ seam allowance already (awesome sauce)
