Re: a fashionable early 14th-century shape.

I was wrong about the sleeves being made in more than one part. They are cut in once piece as a bottle shape, giving the nice wide upper arm and the tight lower arm as it looses width at the elbow.Colin Middleton wrote:The picture that you posted appears to show elbow-break sleeves. I think that these are made in two (or more) parts. The opper arm is loose and 'floaty', then it attaches to the lower arm (just past the elbow?) which is close fitting (and if you're fashionable, you should be sewing yourself in).
Good luck with it, I'm sure that we all want to see the finished results!
