A Fisterra dress with long sleeves
*This article may contain affiliate links.
I’m sure you have patterns you would love to wear all-year round. But sometimes, it’s not possible!
That what happened with my summer Fisterra dress*. I loved the first dress I made and decided it needed some long sleeves for winter.
Adding long sleeves
The only option offered by the pattern was short sleevesn with pleated sleeve caps.
I wanted some dramatic bishop sleeves over a long cuff.
I eliminated the pleated sleeve caps by matching the pleat lines and drawing the new sleeve cap.
I followed this easy tutorial to draft the bishop sleeve, based on the existing sleeve pattern.
The cuff was simply drafted with the height I wanted.
A winter Fisterra
Fabric is crepe from my Fabric Baron’s Mega mystery box. I shot a video to tell you more about it (well…”them” since I bought 3 different mystery boxes!).
Instead of fully lining the dress, I drafted facings for the neckline.
I also slightly lowered the shirred waistband to reach my narural waist.
There’s a Frozen vibe, isn’t it?!?
