Description

I made the flutter sleeve cardi by littleweasel. Thank you so much for posting the pattern and directions. That was a very easy project, yet very rewarding. I want to make another already. I made some alterations. The band around the front was too short for some reason so I added a strip to the back between the two original pieces, and I also moved the dots to gather between. I gathered so that the whole top part of the sleeves is gathered. I also made bubble sleeves rather than flutter sleeves. To do this, I just gathered the bottoms and added a band. Easy as pie!

    How much fabric did you use? I was not able to download the instructions.

    If that doesn’t look comfy, I don’t know what does. Nice
