Ladies Dress Sleeve Pattern No. 3400

Ladies Dress Sleeve Pattern No. 3400

No. 3400. — This sleeve is represented made of plain suit goods.

It is in the popular coat-sleeve shape, with seams at the outside and inside of the arm. The upper part is covered to the elbow with a full puff, which is gathered at its upper and lower edges, rises high above the shoulder and droops gracefully over its joining to the sleeve.

A sleeve of this description is appropriate for any style of basque, bodice or polonaise, and will generally be made up like the garment which it accompanies, although the puff may be of contrasting material, if desired.

Velvet is often chosen for making the sleeve, which will form a favorite addition to many of the stylish woolen dresses at present so fashionab1e. The wrist may be decorated with Vandyke points or embroidery.
