Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class, I’m going to teach you how to make a flamenco sleeve.
This sleeve is not the classic version that you can find in the flamenco dress, I have decided to change this design to one that I like better.
These types of sleeves are especially found in evening dresses and dancewear since they are beautiful sleeves that when they move create shapes that attract attention.
Today’s class begins transforming the pattern block of the sleeve, we are going to start transforming the upper part where we are going to create the structure where we will sew the lower pattern.
For the lower pattern of this sleeve, we are going to use techniques already learned in the circle skirts class, so I recommend that you watch that class first.
Thanks to this class you will learn to modify circular skirts using the techniques that you will learn today but instead of using it on the sleeve, simply apply it to a skirt.
For the hem of the ruffle, I recommend that you make a Pin hem or a handkerchief hem to create a nice finish.
Although you could also use the same pattern as a lining to finish the ruffle.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to create the same sleeve that I have made, but keep in mind that some measurements are for reference.
For example, when we have measured the bottom of the upper pattern, this measurement will change depending on the type of curve you have made.

Send your exercises
The best way to learn industrial pattern making is by practicing, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the patterns for the flamenco sleeve.
You can send me these patterns in real size or half scale.
Please try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations are clearly visible so that I can send you better comments.
