cute top, we call these type of sleeves pipistrel, or sleeves of a bat in The Netherlands. I like them very much. My old top of the same sheer fabric like yours have been hanging in my closet for about 20 years now..sorry, but I still like it, wearing it twice a year. Yea, the feeling of lightness is still there although my waist circumference seems to get a little bit more..

Flash from the past: I probably made this one when it was current! Cute top that you made.

Love the top, turned out great. I, too, enjoy those 70s patterns.
