I'm looking for help sewing a bolero jacket, as I'm planning to cosplay [URL=""]Dio Brando[/URL] from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. When it comes to the sleeves, they seem quite puffy, and they seem to puff up around the shoulder. How would I do this? Would I just alter the pattern of a normal bolero jacket, make the sleeves wider, and then pucker it when sewing it to the arm holes?
Thank you in advance *^^*

You want to alter the sleeve pattern to be a full "Bishop" sleeve with a shoulder pad to get that square shoulder look and full sleeve. [URL=""] Bishop Sleeve Pattern tutorial

While the character is male, the jacket is very 80's businesswoman. I'd just shuffle through vintage patterns until I found the right one.
