Now we will design a new sleeve. I used a sleeve pattern from my last project, but really any pattern of a basic simple one-piece sleeve will do. (Mine has the allowances already added, check with the pattern company if you need to add allowance to it yourself.) Take the second top you got and place the sleeve pattern on it, so that the bottom finished hem of the top becomes the hem of your sleeves ( you can cut your top along side seams and trace each sleeve individually, but I just aligned the bottom hem of my top and traced on a double fabric, so both of my sleeves are identical when cut. Now we need to add the height to the sleeve cap in order to use that excess fabric to form ruches later. I added 15cm, but it is entirely up to you. Trace the sleeve along the pattern on the side seams and on the start of the sleeve caps up about 2-3 inches , then draw a new cap as high as you with- the higher the cap- the more frequent or deeper folds can be formed later on. Mark the very centre top of the sleeve and mark the point where your drawing leaves the pattern line.
