Sleeves are the new Sleeveless

I've been wanting to make a few changes lately to my sleeveless dress patterns, but there are construction difficulties in doing sleeves. I've done a few in the past, but I've jigged the pattern now so that it really works out. I have no doubt that I could do things like long sleeves or puffy sleeves, but that would involve a type of sculpture that I don't really enjoy as much as creating a 1 piece pattern. It would also drastically add to the cost as the time involved would be much greater.

I'll probably make a few more patterns with this cap sleeve based on some of my original designs, but I've also got some ideas for new ones. Funny, I find that these sleeves seem to add a few years to my little girls...Can't really explain why...
