Hi. And welcome to Funzie Studio. My name is Katrina Zarate, and today we are going to go over how to properly roll up a sleeve. So there's varied opinions on this. Some people like to do a master roll, some people like to just do a regular roll. We're going to go over the basic roll up today, which is typically considered the proper way. What you're going to do is start off with is if you're wearing a long sleeve shirt, it may have a cuff or may not. This particular does have a cuff, you'll see it here. And usually cuffs have buttons or snaps that secure them. So go ahead and unsnap and unbutton anything you may have, so it's open. And on sleeves with cuffs, you're going to see a little line which is the sew line here. And you're going to fold out from that line. If you don't have a cuff don't worry. It'll be OK. You're going to roll up about two or three inches, depending on how big of a roll up you would like. So after you've flattened it out you're going to do it one more time. And you're just going to follow from the first roll over. So you're going to take that line that you created and just roll over one more time. And you're going to want to do at least three of these. Otherwise it's just going to come undone, it's going to be really frustrating and you're going to have to do it again. Three is a good secure number and make sure after each roll you flatten it out. It should hit you just below the elbow. Some people like it here for a more casual look. I personally like to go a little bit above the elbow because it's more secure that way. So if you go above the elbow you'll see how it looks here. And again make sure it's all flattened out so it's not bunchy or anything. And you'll see that is the proper way to roll up a sleeve. Thanks again for watching. From Funzie Studio, this is Katrina.
