Fabulous, fabulous use of the ombre stripes. I would totally steal this out of your closet and you've just sold me on this pattern.

Absolutely love how this version turned out! The fabric is fantastic, and you really got the fit nailed down too.

I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy this pattern at the last sale! What a wonderful outfit. The top is so nice!

I am tracing and cutting out the pattern now and will use your changes. Thanks!

Nancy, I used some 1/8" elastic in the seam of the sleeve (top seam) and stretched that as sewing. This gave me the look of the ruching. Yes, I shortened the long sleeve pattern.

So if I have this correctly, you used the long sleeves but shortened them? And you added your own ruchin, not SB's short sleeve ruching in her directions? I have this pattern and am trying to decide how to make elbow length sleeves.

What a beautiful diagonal print. The sleeves look very nice.
