Unique Sleeves Design Cutting & Stitching
For making the first design, go through the following steps:
First,take a cloth material and double fold it.
Now,take the measurement of the broadness of your arms and take 1.5 inch extra and mark it on the cloth with a chalk.
After that, measure the length according to your body and take 1 inch extra for stitching and mark it on the cloth with a chalk.
Next cut it out according to the measurements.
Now,on the open side mark 3.5 inch and connect it to its nearest diagonally opposite side making a design.
Now mark 6.5 inch(take 1.5 inch extra for stitching) in the opposite side with a chalk.
Then,connect this mark with the 3.5 inch mark with a chalk.
Now,cut it out according to the design made on the cloth by the chalk.
Next,make a depth of 0.5 inch in the upper side with a chalk.
Then,lift up the first two folds a little and cut it out according to the design made by the chalk only for the first two folds.
Now at the end,mark 1 inch and make a straight line along the length.
Then,on the opposite side of the line leave 0.5 inch and then mark every 2 inches with a chalk and connect them with the straight line.
Start making semicircles of 4inches connecting end to end of the small lines we just drew.
Now cut it out along the design and separate the two pieces.
Then,take a different cloth of any different colour which will look good with the cloth material.
Next,mark 2 inches and take the length same as that of the sleeve and cut it out.
Now,fold it and stitch it in the way you feel you want to give the piping.
Then fold it and stitch again between the cloth and the piping.
Then,cut small regular slits in the inner side of the piping.
Take the two pieces,keep them side by side and mark the edge of each design with a chalk.
Now, stitch each mark with a needle and join them.
After joining,attach matching beads on the joinings for a beautiful finishing.
Repeat the same process for the other sleeve.
That’s it! The first design is ready.

Paste it with the cloth.
Separate the two pieces and stitch it on the border.
Cut the leftover extra border.
Then, stitch on the back side.
Now,cut the cloth material of broadness 2 inches and length similar to the length of the sleeve.
Fold it above the border,double fold along the length and stitch it placing it above the sleeve along the edge on the back side.

Then,take a matching cloth and sew it with a needle.
Make at least 20 potli balls in the same way.
Attach the potlies in the back side of the sleeve by stitching them.
Now take the cloth again and cut it in the same length as the sleeve having a width of approx 3 inches.
