I am reconstructing an old-school, super-soft sweatshirt into a dress. The bottom band is now an empire waist and i am adding white sweatshirt as the skirt.
What I need help with is the sleeves. I am COMMITTED to the neckline because I want it to look like it came from an old sweatshirt. But the sleeves aren't as important. I was thinking I would leave them long until it got warm here in east Texas (should be about 3 days) and then chopping them off. Or maybe I need to finish the skirt to have a better perspective? I am completely unsure.
I will listen to anything y'all have to say and later I'll post it in completed projects.

Reply it up, folks! while I work on the skirt.

Maybe cut them short and add a band of the white to help tie things together?

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

I agree, I'd cut them short into either cap sleeves, or cut them and gather them into little puffs.  I do like the idea of putting white up there, as well.  It's cute!

Wonderful ideas.
I am decided on short sleeves with a band of white and a little puff.
Thanks. That was a total "can't see the forest for the trees" moment.

Yeah, definitely agreeing with the white Smiley

But I was also envisioning a very sharp looking white pocket with one of those snazzy embroidered emblem thingys on it (a black and red one).
(And maybe a flap with a silver circle press clip too??)

I love that teal colour!! That is going to look so sweet!
