Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class you are going to learn how to make the tulip sleeve.
This sleeve receives different names in different countries so you may know it as petal sleeve.
Personally, I prefer to call it a tulip sleeve because the shape of the sleeve reminds me a lot of the flower.
Today I am going to show you two different ways to make this sleeve just like we do it in the fashion industry.
This sleeve is made of two different patterns, the top sleeve and the under sleeve.
The top sleeve crosses over the under sleeve creating the shape of the tulip petals.
To make these two patterns, first, we will create a Master Pattern or Master Plan. The master plan is a pattern we will transform and then use to trace the patterns for the sleeve.
We do this just in case we have to modify the patterns and can go back to our master plan to do so.
Remember that you have a class on how to trace patterns, I am going to use the tracing wheel because of the lights in the studio, although I prefer the method of putting the paper on top.
At the end of the class, I will give you the instructions on how to sew this sleeve, both for the classic sleeve and for the sleeve without the side seam.
As always, if you have any questions, 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 doing it yourself, so for today’s class, I am going to ask you to make the 2 patterns that we have made in today’s class.
The classic tulip sleeve and the tulip sleeve without side seams.
You already know that you can do this exercise in real size or on a half-scale.
Remember that so that I can correct the exercises, try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations can be seen clearly.
