Bradford costume-the jacket
The wool is such a lovely firm fabric it made these puff sleeves a dream to create, they are made with 3 big pleats top and bottom, with the top center pleat being an inverted box pleat, and placed on a smaller straight sleeve stay to hold the shape.
I'm a costume designer, author and jewellery maker living in the UK. I live in an old cottage in Derbyshire, with my hubby, my house-bunnies Dan Hare and Digby a pussycat called poppy, lots of crafts materials, & a good supply of cocktails & chocolate.
