Dramatic Sleeves

Dramatic Sleeves have been a wave for a while now and I have come to love them, the creativity behind them is admirable and I love the drama they can bring to a rather simple garment.

Dramatic sleeves come back various types, circular flounce, ruffled, virago, leg of mutton, juilet, Bishop, dolman, bell, puffed, trumpet, peasant, lantern, batwing/mag yards, butterfly. You’ve probably not heard of some of these sleeves before or maybe you know them but don’t know their names.

Dramatic sleeves are beautiful and my personal favourite will be bell and virago. While I don’t think virago is something I would wear, it’s very pleasing to the eye and I love to feed my eyes.

BELL SLEEVESΒ 

A sleeve that is fitted from the shoulder to elbow and gently flared from elbow onward. It can be long or short and is set smoothly into the armhole.

VIRAGO

A full paned sleeve gathered into two puffs by a ribbon or fabric band. This was very popular in the 1620s/1630s. A more modern twist has been put to it.

Your sleeves have names, yes they do. I think some are manipulated to create a new style and I really love that.
