Mad About Sleeves -the Book

Mad About Sleeves cover

Mad About Sleeves is a compilation of instructions for over sixty different sleeve patterns. Included are both set-in sleeve and raglan sleeve designs, as well as a variety of cuff styles for shirt sleeves. You can find all the classic sleeve designs and some more avant-garde and sculptural designs for special projects. 

If you’re already familiar with the PDF version, this book has all the same contents including the bonus materials published during 2021. Only the layout has been modified and the sleeves have been organized into chapters.

These instructions can be used to create sleeve patterns from basic sleeve blocks, but you can also take an existing garment pattern and modify the sleeve for a new look.

For each sleeve design, there are illustrations accompanied by written step-by-step instructions so that you can easily draft your own patterns. The measurements are both in centimeters and inches.
