Making sleeves from a hem

Updated: Jul 17

Before I added a hem band, I cut off 3" of fabric from the bottom of this dress to use for sleeves. Tutorial coming soon!

The Free pattern: Print out the two pages, cut out and overlap the blue lines. Girls size 10

This yellow dress had a large hem, so once I cut and unpicked it, I had 4" of fabric to use for sleeves.

The original armscye (circular opening in bodice for arms) cut too far into the body to simply add sleeves directly to it. So I added the cheetah print armscye extension first and then the sleeves.
