Sew along with me as I make a puff sleeve top using my Blouse One sewing pattern.
If you have been following me on social media you may already know that I love garments with puff sleeves, ruffles and gathers. When I am designing sewing patterns for my brand Makyla Creates or making DIY projects I am always drawn to these features.
Growing up I was in awe of haute couture houses. Chanel, Dior, Miu Miu to name a few but my overall favourite was Chloe.
I found it my mission to study the garments, fabrics and styling these brands created. By doing this I came to realise the aesthetics that pleased me from each of these design houses. Surprise, surprise, the ruffles, gathers, puff sleeves and beautiful fabrics were on the top of my list.
This project is a fun pattern hack inspired by my Blouse One sewing pattern.
If you don’t already have this sewing pattern you can purchase it here.
I really love how this top has turned out and I think the cotton gauze works super well being gathered and shirred! It’s so delicate and beautiful.
To make yourself this puff sleeve top the pattern hacking guide is below. If you have any questions please comment below, I’m happy to help!
PUFF SLEEVE PATTERN ADJUSTMENTS:
- Changing V-neck to a round neckline.
- Reducing top length to remove curved hemline.
- Adding fullness to the sleeve to create more fullness.
- Shortening sleeve length to sit above the elbow.
HOW TO MAKE A PUFF SLEEVE TOP VIDEO:
Follow the pattern hacking guide above to create the right pattern pieces for this puff sleeve top project.
Start by cutting out all the pattern pieces and begin sewing as the Blouse One instructions.
This pattern adaptation is a quicker sew than the original pattern as the more challenging steps have been modified. The v-neck, cuffs, buttons and the curved hemline have all been adapted for this puff sleeve blouse.
