Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, we are going to learn how to make a lantern sleeve.
In previous classes, I have already taught you how to add volume at the top of the sleeve and how to add volume at the bottom of the sleeve.
You have also learned to combine the two previous techniques with the puff sleeve.
Today you will learn how to add volume inside the sleeve thanks to the lantern sleeve, a classic sleeve that is characterized by having a silhouette reminiscent of an old lantern.
We can find this sleeve in both the short-sleeved version and the long-sleeved version.
In today’s class I’m going to teach you how to make the short-sleeved pattern, but using the same techniques you’ll learn today, you can make the long-sleeved one.
Also, I’m going to show you the prototype of a long lantern sleeve so you can visualize how it would look.
As always, I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make the same design that I have done, but as I always tell you, you can change the measurements if you want a sleeve with more or less volume.
At the end of today’s class, you will also find instructions on how to sew the lantern sleeve.
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, you can send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
The best way to learn pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the lantern sleeve with its corresponding facing.
Remember that you can do this exercise at full size or at half scale if it is easier for you.
So that I can send you better comments, please try to send me photos where you can see the pattern and its annotations clearly.
