Making Statement Sleeves Stand Out

Statement sleeves are a huge, pun intended, trend right now.  So I thought I'd share a quick tutorial on how to give a little extra stand out power to your fashion sleeves.

Most statement sleeves fall a little flat.  I shared this little trick with all my Milly makers and now it's time to share it with you.

The secret to puffy statement sleeves?  Tulle, my friends.  In this picture Milly doesn't have tulle added to the sleeve head.

In this picture, I added the tulle to the sleeve head.  Beautiful!!

All you need is a strip of tulle.  About 10"-12" in length and 3.5"-4"  in height.  You want slightly firmer tulle.  If it's too light, the weight of the fabric will crush it.  

Fold your tulle in half and gather it.

Now, all you need to do is sew it into the crown of your sleeve.

And that's all!  This faux Milly, has plenty of tulle in the sleeve head.  The statement sleeve becomes gravity defying!!

Have fun with your statement sleeves, and happy sewing.
