Puffy sleeve test-run-tee, 1930's style

Added Jan 17, 2010

Stockholm, Sweden






A puffy sleeve t-shirt, the first real garment I’ve made on my new overlock-machine.

Inspired by 1930’s puffy sleeves and based on one of my favourite old cardigans.

No pattern was used but I did make a simple pattern for the puffy sleeve as I went.

    This shirt is super cute (like all of your other projects) but I was compelled to comment because of those sheos…All of your shoes are absolutely adorable!
