A bottle of wine is a welcome sight at 1840 Farm. I love to give a bottle of wine as a gift almost as much as I love receiving one. When giving a great bottle as a gift, I struggled to find a gift bag that was up to the task. A simple paper bag always seemed inadequate in both style and substance.

What I needed was a sleeve for the bottle that added a little whimsy and style without completely camouflaging the bottle inside. Luckily, I happen to have a steady supply of shirt sleeves left over from making our 1840 Farmhouse Aprons. Viola-a literal wine sleeve perfect for use as a gift bag or to house a bottle of wine at the family table, catching any errant drips as the wine is served.

Our farmhouse wine sleeves are constructed entirely from repurposed dress shirts. Each shirt is purchased from a charitable thrift store before being laundered and deconstructed. The purchase of these fabrics benefits local charities and gives back to the community. Your purchase will help to support the charitable organizations that provide these recycled fabrics for sale.

Because the dress shirts used to construct the wine sleeve have already lived a full life, the fabric may show normal signs of wear from standard use. This may include light fading of the fabric but will not include visible stains, tears, or rips. Instead, the fabric has a beautiful and lived in appearance.

The design of our wine sleeve takes advantage of the best a dress shirt has to offer, incorporating the original shirt’s style. Everything from shirt cuffs to buttons and their corresponding buttonholes makes an appearance in the finished sleeve. The bottom of the sleeve has a box pleat to provide a flat surface for the bottle to rest on and to give the appearance of a gift bag.

This sleeve was constructed using the shirt sleeve from a pink striped designer Robert Graham brand shirt. It features a standard cuff with a contrasting interior fabric and double buttons. The placket features a single button. The finished sleeve measures approximately 7 inches wide by 12.5 inches tall. This sleeve can accommodate a standard sized wine bottle or a magnum bottle.

This sleeve is machine washable. It can be safely laundered on the normal cycle and dried on low to medium heat. If desired, the sleeve can be ironed for a crisp appearance. Because the fabric was intended as a dress shirt, it will iron easily and beautifully. Each sleeve is ironed before shipment so that it is ready for use as soon as you receive it.

This listing is for the sleeve only. Other items shown in the photographs are not included in the sale price. Those items were used for photographic purposes only. Their use was intended to show the utility and style of the sleeve.
