I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it and had to make it! Problem is, the Aussie summer is coming and sleeves are a no no. So, I decided to pinch in the side seams to make a bodice with smaller armholes and it worked beautifully. I did this by making a muslin of the bodice and pinning in where the arm hole gapes due to the puffy sleeve. I just love it and now I’m summer set!
