CUTTING OF OUR AFRICAN SLEEVES(015)

The lutterloh pattern sleaves are long but in the African style the sleaves are quite short.If you have been following me, you will remember we have costomised the sleave pattern and made it shorter .please note that it is better to open your sleeves and do your cutting because the side of the sleave that will be joined to the backside of the dress is usually less curved than the side attached to the front part of the dress .please watch video to have a better understanding.
HAPPY CUTTING.
