In the 1830s women’s gowns featured a wide range of sleeve shapes sustained by boned or stuffed sleeve supports. Students will draft patterns and work toiles of a sleeve puff (using an unpublished pattern by Janet Arnold) and of various styles of sleeve based on original patterns published at the time. Extant clothes from the Hopkins Collection will be available for close examination.
