The Inside of a 16th Century Sleeve

If you have ever wondered what the inside of 16th century a cameo cut sleeve might look like, you are in luck.

(Disclaimer: I did say ‘might’. We really don’t know for sure and I can’t seem to find any extant dresses from this period that sports this style sleeve. It is very possible that these sleeves, once they fell out of fashion around the early 1530s, were refashioned into something else due to the large amount of yardage used to make them. This is just my take on it. I personally think that the inside looks similar to the inside of the Tardis if you tilt your head and squint your eyes.)
