how to roll up jacket sleeve

Button-Up Top Sleeve Cuff

Create 1 big cuff by making one big fold. Then, fold that big cuff in half to make the final smaller cuff. By folding this way, the cuff is more resistant to unrolling.

According to current fashion trends, the bottom of the cuff should rest just below the elbow.

Tee Sleeve Cuff

A loose short-sleeve t-shirt always seems to look better with its sleeves rolled a bit. However, I find that rolled sleeves have a tendency to unroll. For this reason, I usually add a few stitches to the rolled sleeves, since I'll never wear the t-shirt with the sleeves un-rolled.

Top Tuck

According to current fashion, just the front part of the bottom of the top should be tucked in with the sides down. A completely tucked in shirt can look a bit stuffy for casual wear, and uneven tucking actually has a leg-elongating effect. :)
