Tutorial Learn to sew the sleeves – The Cologne Blouse - Youtube


Hello dear sewists!

As you may have seem Cologne is not a very complicated make. It comes together surprisingly quickly, once you get you head around the series of pleats from the sleeves and the elasticated cuffs.

Although Cologne comes with illustrated instruction, I also thought to include an extra resource to help you to achieve the sleeves detail at its best.

So I have created a video showing how to pleat the sleeves, plus the method I used to insert the elastic at the cuffs.


It is not a tutorial step by step of the whole blouse, but it is of the detail that had some of the pattern testers who were beginners pointing out as a resource that could help.

Please don’t forget if you make a cologne blouse to share with us on Instagram using the hashtag #cologneblouse and tagging us to your post!
