Tulip Sleeves Adds Just the Right Touch To The Dress Pattern

Okay, I'll admit it, I love tulip sleeves.   The tulip sleeve is a touch of the unexpected.   A short sleeve, yes, but not simple and straight forward.  It's soft, romantic and, well ... pretty.

Butterick 6601 - The tulip compliments the straight lines of the dress.  

McCalls 2353 - The tulip adds a touch of flirty fun

McCalls 2302 - The tulip sleeves dresses up very nicely

I haven't seen this sleeve much in the fashion mags over the last couple of years, which is a real mystery to me.  Why would one not want to design with the Tulip Sleeve?

Thanks for dropping by.
