    I like the decoration. Also called brodoni. They were large, decorative puffs in the upper part of the sleeve (Landini 2005: 249). The wide sleeves of the 1510's started to narrow in the bottom and become wider at the top. In the 1530's they became gathered, and eventually also smaller, ending in decorative shoulder rolls in the 1550's. This fashion stayed until the end of the century.
