If your puffy sleeves are looking a bit soggy, stuff them with a couple of cotton socks. This works especially great for last minute fixes since everyone has them on hand. The socks are much softer than a net facing sewed into the sleeve head, and because they are removable, the costume will take up less closet space. It also makes me giggle knowing I have secret socks sitting in my sleeves! So go make Anne of Green Gables envious over your puffed sleeves.

Reminds me of a former co-worker (bachelor) who was also a body builder. One day one of his biceps looked much larger than the other. Turns out he'd taken the shirt out of the dryer and failed to see a sock left in the sleeve -- he never did live that one down !
