The other day a friend of mine finally let me in on the secret of how you can make these gathered sleeves you see everywhere at the moment. It’s a lot simpler than I thought and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out :-) For the pattern I used my jersey bodice block and modified the sleeves to get that gathered effect.

    Knipmode had a pattern for these a couple of years back but your version looks better because of the thin fabric you’ve used. Good job.
