Pattern by: Larkin and Smith
Made in the USA
These sleeve ruffles are suitable for the 1760s through the early 1780s. The pattern is developed from an extant pair, this pattern will make an exact copy of the originals. Each double ruffle consists of two asymmetrical layers. Even poor women sometimes had ruffles at the sleeves at their gowns (although the ruffles may be worn). For example sometimes ruffles are described at the sleeves of even servants such as in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls 1773 where in The Pennsylvania Gazette an ad included "Run Away . . . an Irish servant girl . . . had on, and took with her . . . a purple and white calicoe gown, with ruffles at the sleeves".
