The Sleeves that Never Were

Here they are, the sleeves that never were:


I originally wanted short sleeves for this dress.  I thought they would show off the stripes a bit better, but in the half-waking life that is falling asleep, I realized fluttery sleeves are better.  I feel like I have a lot of good ideas in that twilight time.  I also sing really well in the shower and find things in the last place I look.  I guess I'm just a special little snowflake that way!

So, I scrapped the short sleeves and went onward with the pain-in-the-ass-to-cut-out curves of fluttery sleeves:




Pain in the ass, for sure, but I'm happy with the outcome...



So many stripes!!!

Also, I bit the bullet and stopped by Joann's to pick up lining for the dress.  I got a stretch polyester which I'm less than thrilled about.  While the bolts of novelty fleece were numerous, the options for sexy, slinky black fabric were not.  Do you think it will be itchy?

  1. The fluttery sleeves were a good choice, and the fabric is really great and funky. Can't wait to see the finished product.
