Marfy 2155 Sleeve Challenge

I really love these sleeves!

I got the pattern yesterday expecting them to look like the famous Simplicity knit twist top that has been reviewed over a hundred time, but they don't!

The matching points are pretty well marked. A, B, C and D line up on the back of the pattern and the back of the sleeve in descending order; and A, E, H and D line up down the front of the sleeve. I think I can figure this out, but it is definitely going to take a sleeve muslin! My biggest concern is that their sleeves are often tight on me because I carry quite a bit in my upper arms.


  1. A sleeve muslin would be the way to go for this. It also gives you the opportunity to see how/where to widen the sleeve for your arms. Looking forward to your progress with this.

  2. I hope that you take some photos along the way, and post how this sleeve is constructed. Looks like fun!

  3. That is going to be great and I am looking forward to seeing this in progress as I still can't quite visualise how this sleeve will go together. I agree that a muslin would be the way forward for this sleeve but am sure you will get it sorted out so its comfortable.
