Here's a link to the Classix Nouveau Primavera Dress.

They describe the sleeves as "semi-raglan darted sleeves" and I'm curious about what they looks like and how it affects the shape of the sleeve.

The sleeves sucked me in, too.

I have always liked this type of sleeve. A long while back Burda had a lot of them.

from the description it sounds like instead of a raglan sleeve that is two pieces (like the uptown downtown knit dress) that it is a single piece with the dart going up over the shoulder.

I have made sleeves like this before, and as long as you curve that seam for the raglan dart (so it doesn't make little points on your shoulders) it does make for a very nicely fitted, and sleek sleeve.

Actually, now that you mention it, I've made that kind too. I was looking at the diagram and it looks like there is a dart in the armpit but I think that's just to show a fold in the sleeve. This one has a raglan sleeve with a dart in it.

my guess is that the sleeve is darted like the TS santa monica tee.

Hmmm, I don't think that pattern has a raglan sleeve; the sleeves don't go to the neckline in the diagram. Instead, they come part way to the neckline.

(oops - fixed typo)

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.
