I’m making a stretchy knit version of the Sadie tank, but I would like to add sleeves. Because my fabric has such a nice drape, I would like to make sleeves similar to these “butterfly sleeves”:
with gathers where it meets the armhole, but the wide, flowy bottoms of the sleeves. I have a couple questions about doing this that I would like to have answered before I use any more fabric:
1. Are there any how-tos around the web that I can refer to?
2. I am assuming the correct order of construction would be to create the gathers and then sew the sleeve onto the top, correct?
3. Is gathering all that is required to give the sleeve the bottom that is wider than the top, or do I actually need to cut the fabric wider at the bottom?
Thanks for any advice!
