I looked this one up on Silhouette Patterns since I wasn't familiar with it. Really interesting sleeves. Is that lattice work look something the sewist does or does one just use different fabric for the sleeves? How did the sizing work out for you?

The sleeves are made from a different fabric on the pattern envelope. She used a lacy knit, but the sleeves don't really need stretch. It would be fun to do out of lace or crochet. The sizing was perfect, and the garment mentioned in my review was supposed to be my sloper..it just looks so nice that I finished it.

It took me 3 months and many questions to Peggy to FINALLY figure out how to do the gussets and the ruffle. The instructions are terrible and the illustration is not right. I don't know HOW you figured it out.
