The Julianne Blog Tour

Tie sleeve hack for the Julianne Women’s Button-up Shirt and Dress PDF Sewing Pattern – Misses and Plus. Stitched by Jennie

Yesterday I shared my plaid Julianne dress (see it here), and today I am sharing a fun hack to the pattern as my part of the Julianne Blog Tour. Once again I made the mid-thigh length dress, with the drawstring casing at the waist. This time I chose long sleeves and I hacked them to have ties as well.

Here is how I hacked the sleeves to make ties:

  • cut the long sleeve piece 3″ longer
  • mark 1.25″ up from the bottom of the sleeve
  • make two button holes, each 0.25″ away from the center line of the sleeve
  • add the sleeves to the dress following the normal instructions
  • make the casing for the drawstring by folding the sleeve up 0.25″ and then another 1.25″
  • sew close to the folded edge
  • make two drawstrings (I made mine 21″ long, however I suggest measuring around your wrist to see what a good length is for you)
  • thread your drawstrings into the casing and tie into a bow

I love the added ties at the wrists, and I think they work really well with the drawstring at the waist.

  1. I love this! And your plaid version!! I just bought a ton of plaid flannel, and now I can make my daughter a nice hooded flannel to match the ones I’m making for my grandkids. Dare I try one for my son-in-law?
