Here is one of my favorite sleeve styles.
It’s a bat wing sleeve. And what we have with that, is really no definition of sleeve until
you get down to the stuff. There’s no seam lines between where we have, on, like say
we have our arm hole right there, and then we have our sleeve like this. This is the
definition. There is a seam line. You sew in, you sew the shell, then you sew the arm
into it. This, with the bat wing sleeve is all one. The, say you’re designing a dress.
The body in your dress, and the armhole of your, the arm, the sleeve of your dress, they’re
all one, one piece. If you’re wearing a bat wing sleeve dress, and you put your arms down
by your sides, typically, you’ll be able to feel your skin through, because there’s no,
there’s not a set demarcation of the fabric. There’s not two pieces of tee put together.
You use blossy, bunch of fabric girded wise, and then you have to taper it once you get
to the wrist because that’s where your hand comes out. But other than that, it’s whatever
you choose, however blossy and drapey you want it, but the bat wing sleeve. The purpose
of it is that it’s, by definition, is the sleeve is attached to the body. It’s all one
thing with an arm, with hand holes basically.
