I just started working on my first two nightgowns that I'm making from this pattern. I LIKE what you did with the yoke and sleeves. The fabric and lace-and-ribbon trims are fantastic! Yeah, I thought that the facing for the sleeve was weird too, but it made sense when I realized that the wrong side of the fabric would show otherwise, which would be a problem for most prints. I, too, noticed that the bottom width of the gown is HUGE! That was part of its appeal to me :) Also, thanks for confirming what I thought of the sleeves. I have skinny arms, and I saw on the cutting table that the sleeves looked rather narrow, even for me. When I tried on the muslin, I found that I will be wanting wider sleeves, for sure.

Very pretty, cool and summery...the trims and combo fabrics really look nice. How odd, a facing for a sleeve...I would've omitted that too. Thanks for the review :)
