Cut two sleeves longer than the arms and wide enough that there would be some puffiness to the sleeve when done. The edges are hemmed and they are sewn into tubes and turned right side out. Be sure the tube fits over the hand!
The sleeve is now pulled back down the arm to cover the glued area at the wrist and create a puff of sleeve over the cuff. A thin layer of glue is applied to the top and side of the arm then the sleeve is pulled back up the arm and pressed into the glue lightly.
You will notice the puff around the base of the cuff and wrinkles and folds in the sleeve at the elbow.
Next time we will make a cape and hat. Have a great day!
