Since the release of the Onyx shirt, I’ve already seen some people lengthening the sleeves. This hack is perfect for transitioning your Onyx into fall, so I thought I’d make it easier for those who’d like that too! I’ve drafted two new sleeve options for the Onyx: 3/4 length and a long sleeve. Both are graded and nested and have a matching optional cuff. This sleeve pack is available as a separate add-on so those who already have the Onyx Shirt can get the Sleeve Pack too.
The ikat sample above with 3/4 sleeves and cuff is made with a crisp cotton. The long sleeve sample is made with a viscose/rayon. You can clearly see the difference drape between the two. The cotton bordered on being too stiff, but I liked the print so much! I would recommend to go with fabrics with a bit more drape for the long sleeves. The pink shirt is so incredibly comfortable and soft against the skin.
For these samples I’ve cut a size 3 grading out to 4 at the hips. I’ve also lengthened the bodice and sleeves. These adjustments are necessary to showcase the patterns as they would look on you – I am taller than what I drafted my patterns for. For these samples I’ve only made the cuff for the 3/4 option, but the cuffs and epaulet are optional for both versions. This add-on gives you more possibilities for your Onyx and extends the wearing season.
