PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS!
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes.
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.
Another “How I Did/Made It” !
I’m sorry if you find it too fast to understand, I have no clue what you would consider easy or difficult, so I end up showing it the way I would understand without getting bored!
I’m writing about it on my blog, so the written version of this video should be online tonight :)
"Alright!! There’s nothing to be scared of! You guys just keep looking straight ahead. I’ll guard your backs with my life if I have to!"
Learn how I patterned my Arya Stark jerkin and made a mock-up to check my work! Read more.
Happy 1. KLK anniversary everyone! :)
