In this post I will go over some pretty amazing sleeves with equally amazing names. Now the question is, which sleeve will you slide your arm into this Fall?
Most cap sleeves are made by extending out the shoulder seam.
The easiest way to spot this sleeve is to picture a chicken leg. Extremely full at the top and fitted down to the wrist.
Used in the 1800's, the idea was that if your gigot fullness was extreme, it would make your waist appear smaller.
Important elements for a dolman sleeve include a fitted sleeve from wrist up to elbow region then excess amount of fabric dropped from armhole area.
Bell sleeves can add drama to any outfit, but I dont recommend dining in bell sleeves.
Extremely feminine and youthful sleeve. I think the last time I wore this sleeve, I was 12.
If you have broad shoulders, this sleeve only makes you look wider.
