Though I am not a fan of puffy sleeves, this top looks good on you. You are trim and slim and can make it work. Good job

I love both of the unconventional turtlenecks that you've shown on PR. Very creative!

Lisa, you can make it no problem, the puffed part is 16-17"wise where it attches to the rest of the sleeve and 8" long. Everything else is a close fitting turtlenech pattern.

Awesome! Thanks for explaining the clear plastic method -- MUCH easier than other kinds of RTW tracing.

I bet 19 YO DD would love this. Don't have the original top to go by, but the elements ... turtleneck t, puffed sleeves w/fitted sleeves added below... ought to be findable. thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, what an unusual style-very cool! It's quirky but like you say, not too over the top :o)

I love the funky sleeves! I like yours even better that Rachel Mara's, because you used a different fabric on the lower part of the sleeve. Great job and great top!
