I haven't posted much in a looooooooong time. Simply because i haven't made anything Sad
But over the Thanksgiving break i decided to tackle something I have never tackled before. SLEEVES.

So this is my first sleeved item and might I add I like the way it came out and looks quite normal. Being that i don't measure anything for the sake of laziness and impressive knowledge of my own body measurements, one sleeve was longer than the other. But I cut it and re-hemmed it! Problem solved!

I also wanted the stripes on the sleeves to purposely NOT line up but I kinda failed at that.

Well if anyone has tips on tackling a sleeve please share!
Questions. Comments. Concerns always greatly appreciated.

Might I also add that I LOVE STRIPESSS!!  Grin

You look fantastic!

You did a great job on the dress and the sleeves, and I'm jealous that you're able to wear stripes (I'd end up looking like an overfed zebra in this Cheesy )

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

Damn that is hawt.
I noticed the sleeves are horizontal and not vertical.
Was that intentional? It still looks hawt, but I was just curious.
