    I was wondering if there is a tutorial to change the classic shirt sleeve to a short sleeve with cuffs. I found the tutorial to change it to short sleeves but I am not sure how to add a fold up cuff

    Do you have the Jump Rope Dress pattern? That shows the easy way to do a cuff where the sleeve has parallel sides.
    Essentially a cuff is just a really deep single fold hem and then the folded edge is turned up again.
    I would straighten out the sides of the sleeve to make them closer to parallel, then add a deep hem allowance with the slight angle out as the tutorial shows.
    Make the hem allowance just under twice the desired thickness of the turned up bit.
    Then the turned up cuff can cover the stitching line of the hem.
    Does that make sense?

    Thanks, I do have that pattern so I will have a look at it.
