You look great! Nice pattern!! I feel so out of touch with Pattern review lately --just am out of touch with my sewing mojo lately, and even reading reviews! Ah, I'll get back to it sometime --I can't stay away forever!!

Fran, I did not use 2 rows of gathering stitches because at first I didn't realize this was a "puffed/gathered" sleeve. I had "finger-eased stitched" the sleeve head in preparation for setting it in assuming all the fullness would have to be taken out. This may have made it less puffy. I did not change the sleeve in any other way.

Really cute dress! In looking at the line drawing the sleeves look very full while yours look just full enough..perfect. Did you eliminate some of the fullness?

I love gathered sleeves too! This is a fun dress, you'll get a lot of wear out of it.

Great style for you. It's kind of hard to tell the color in the picture. Is it black? Nice job on this Cindy.
