i think i’m on a ruffle kick, or something… sadly, i couldn’t use my ruffler on this one, since i was working with jersey. so instead, i sat in front of my machine, pleat, sew, pleat, sew… it was pretty fun. and, since my arms seem to be too big for the lydia pattern sleeves, i just made these bell sleeves so i didn’t have to worry about the fit. there was supposed to be a belt, too, but i didn’t have any fabric left for it after i did the pleating.
i can’t wait to wear it. =]
