Here's a quick video showing how to construct each type of sleeve found in the Iris pleated tee.
You will find fully-illustrated instructions in the PDF pattern download of course, but sometimes a video really is the best! Plus, I think you'll agree it is pretty satisfying to watch. Seeing a flat pattern piece turn into a 3D object is one of the most exciting parts of sewing!

It's time to show off the stunning makes that our testers made during the testing process. I feel like I was blessed with simply wonderful testers that gave such amazing feedback during the process and really helped the design be the best it could be! I think one of my favourite things is how this pattern flatters all sort of body types, curvy or not! And my other favourite thing is how the bust didn't gape on a single tester, something I'm very proud of.

It's different to lining, as lining is like a separate unit that is only attached to the main in a few key areas.
