Square sleeves seem to be popping up all over the highstreet usually attached to oversized shirts. They looked flattering and simple to make, so I tried the new technique on this new dress. I like the effect, and definitely liked how easy they were to make!
Basically, take a rectangle measuring 10cm wide x length of armhole curve (plus seam allowance) cut on the straight grain. First sew the two short ends together, then fold in half and sew into the armhole like any other sleeve. That is it! If you like a stylish shortcut whilst sewing, then this if for you;)
