Match your sleeve panels with the body in this amazing colour block example!
You can start with any base pattern, I love these sleeveless looks.
You can choose whether to sew the panels as a regular seam or to finish the edges and overlap them on top of the seams! Just remember to finish the edge of both pieces before gathering and stitching in place.
Pair it with some killer sleeves!
Learn how to draft your own tiered dresses, skirts and patterns with this easy pattern cutting tutorial.
I love the scallops sandwiched in-between each tier! It feels like a super inventive way to add some playfulness into the garment.
Add a thin panel the same measurement as the top tier to create this elasticated waistband.
