Recently I saw a sleeve that covered the lower arm and decorated with Brazilian roses.  I just loved the embroidered roses and lace so I pinned it..  Then I realized it would make a wonderful cover up for a lymph edema sleeve.  When out looking for wedding fabric a while back I came across 13 yards of 60 wide black lace that had a swirling leaf pattern and small iridescent sequins.  The lace is amazing especially at $1.00 a yard.  I couldn't walk away from such an amazing find!  There was also 30 yards of black rose patterned lace with gold braiding woven into it.  I just hung on to the lace and kept saying "it's mine".  So with way more lace then anyone needs I'm trying to figure out how to sew the sleeve.  That way I could make some for the local cancer center.  This is what I came up with, it's not quite right yet but this one is mine!  The spider roses are made with the scraps of fabric from making the sleeve.  I cut the scraps into long straight pieces like a ribbon and then create the spider roses.

Very elegant. I love the way lace sleeves look too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

That is a really good idea.

Thank you for the compliment.  I'm so glad I pinned that sleeve.  But I want to also work some wool roses but the netting is rather delicate for that type of embroidery.  So I got some pellon to embroider on and then fix it to the sleeve.  I can see wearing two of these to a special occasion.  Teens wearing them to prom, etc.  Now I need to figure out how to make water proof sleeves for gardening!
