First draft a basic sleeve pattern and outline the overlap and underlap of the tulip sleeve.
Trace the overlap and underlap out and add seam allowance. Cut the fabric out. Cut lining out, if the sleeve is to be lined. 4 panels x fabric and 4 panels lining.
With right sides together, pin the overlap and underlap underarm seams together and machine stitch. Repeat the same for lining. Press the seam open.
With right sides together, pin the fabric and the lining together and machine stitch.
Understitch and trim the seam allowance.
Turn the sleeve to the right side and with wrong side facing you, tack the seam allowance together and press.
Matching the marks on the overlap and underlap, cross A over B and pin and tack in place. Machine stitch the sleeve head and finish off by setting it into the armhole of the garment.
The overlap can be place at the back, or the front of the garment.
