Crimson and Burgundy Elizabethan Gown Sleeve Puffs
Crimson and Burgundy Elizabethan Gown Sleeve Puffs

The top of the silk chemise sleeves can be pulled up to make puffs through the short cap sleeve. This sleeve is made from separate bands of trimmed fabric. There are five bands of three different lengths with the center being the longest and the outer two the shortest. To help keep the puffs in place I added some grossgrain strips under each of the five bands, this created narrow slits between the ribbons that works mich like a tissue box, you can pull the silk through but it doesn't slip back. The ribbon strips also holds the cap sleeves shape.
