Add extra drama to your Iceberg Maxi Dress with the first gift in our advent calendar: a free bell sleeve pattern! The sleeve is fitted at the top and flares out at the wrist - leave it loose and flowy for a nod to 70s glamour, or gather in with elastic if you're worried about getting it in your gravy!
In our sample version we've also melted down the neckline and chopped it off into a top. The fabric is red merino wool from our stash - originally bought on one of Alice's trip to New Zealand - click here to read more about it on her Where 2 Wear It blog!
Ding Dong Merrily on high - the Iceberg bell sleeves are ringing!

*Please make sure you read the following instructions carefully before printing!*
For A4/US Letter: it is vital to make sure your pattern prints at full scale or the sizing will not be correct. Your print settings should be set to 'full scale', '100%', 'actual size' or equivalent according to your printer software.
There are two test squares on the first page of every pattern: a 5cm and a 2" square.
Print only this page first and check your square measures up, before printing the rest of the pattern.
