Sleeves Basics

This was just what I needed to add sleeves to all the darling Violette Fields patterns that I have.

Nice addition to my collection

This was a great addition to my pattern collection. I was able to do a different type of sleeve on a dress to change up the look. Very easy to use.

Perfect fit

I purchased the sleeve basics to add long sleeves to the Abigail dresses I made my little girls for Christmas. So so easy to use and a perfect fit. I’ll definitely be mixing up my sleeves more often now!

Sleeves to the rescue

I needed a sleeve to add to a dress pattern. VFT had the solution with a sleeve pattern. Thank you. I have purchased many patterns and have enjoyed making each of them. Never had an issue. I have a 5 and almost 2 year old. I sew for frequently.
