Batwing Sleeve

What is a Batwing Sleeve?

A Batwing Sleeve, also known as dolman sleeve or butterfly sleeve, is a style of sleeve construction that is wide and loose-fitting, resembling the wings of a bat. The sleeve is cut as part of the garment's body, without a separate armhole seam, and drapes or extends from the neckline to the wrist or elbow. Batwing sleeves are known for their relaxed and comfortable fit, allowing for ease of movement and a unique silhouette. They are often found in tops, dresses, or sweaters, adding a touch of volume and a stylish, bohemian aesthetic to the garment.
