Picture of WHAT YOU NEED
You need:
-long piece of fabric (stretchy and soft, IMPORTANT);
-sewing machine.

Step 2: CUT

Picture of CUT
Cut the fabric in a long stripe like in the drawing. If you don't have a long enough piece just sew few pieces together (like I did).

A→ the measurement of the circumference of the open part of the sleeve;
B→ the measurement of the circumference of the shoulder part;
C→ the measurement of 1 1/2 the circumference of your chest;
D→ the length of the sleeve.

This is the measurement I used (but you really should resize them on your own body measurement):

Remember to do it a bit larger to be able to fit a sweater under it.
Also it should not be too long or it will fell down, or too short or it will be uncomfortable.

Step 3: SEW

Pin and sew the sleeves part inside out.
Leave the rest open. 

It may take a little bit before you have the right and comfortable measurement, so try it on before sew it.

Step 4: HEM

Picture of HEM
Sew a little fold on all the edges.


Picture of HOW TO WEAR IT
Put a sleeve on, do a wrap around your chest, from behind to in front of you, then put on the other sleeve.

Step 6: DONE

Marcella you are a genius, you can accessorise the sleeves with studs or embroidered cutouts and create one fantastic clothing line. I bow
