This is the Ruffle Sleeve Top, designed by Emily from In The Folds, exclusively for Peppermint Magazine. Emily has such an amazing, clean aesthetic that really shines through her patterns, and I think it is very generous to offer them for free!

I shamelessly took a lot of inspiration from Amanda of Bimble & Pimble after seeing her ruffle sleeve top on Instagram. I purchased a pretty navy check cotton from Tessuti Fabrics and had this baby hanging in my wardrobe the next day.

I actually made this navy linen version first, you could call it my “wearable toile”. It’s one size up from the checkered top, and is probably a little big on me. The linen is so lovely and gets softer after every wear.

I mentioned before about beautiful finishing techniques. This pattern is sewn with French Seams! I’d never done a French Seam on a sleeve before, and I am thrilled with how clean it looks on the inside.

Love, love, LOVE this top! I already want to make a white version, maybe with an eyelet fabric for the ruffle sleeves (better pop it on the Spring Sewing List!).
