Pleated sleeves vol. 2

PixieMarket pleat sleeve sweatshirt

I seem to have an addiction to sleeves and shoulders... I believe it to be one of the fastest ways to refashion a shirt or dress. This pleat-sleeve sweatshirt I spotted at Pixie Market. The sleeve design is megasimple but very stylish and DIYable. The sleeve is detached and folded vertically. Sew the dart (sleeve will become shorter) and the sleeve back. Fold the sharp shoulder line in the back and sew. This idea works also for knitwear.

This dress by Warehouse has a similar idea, but istead of the dart the sleeve top is folded and pleated. This design requires some fabric, so you can make this only for garments that have large sleeves. (Photos via Fashion Mongers).

  1. I really like that top sleeve idea. I'm going to have to try it. (It does look very quick and easy).

  2. Is it possible to apply this shoulder effect on a Raglan style sweatshirt? (referring to pleat-sleeve sweatshirt f/ Pixie Market)
