Very pretty top. I'd love more info on the sleeve--it looks great!

nicegirl - Thanks. For the sleeve pattern, I cut the ends off that attach under the arm. This gave me more of a fat crescent shape. Then I attached the piece upside down. The curved portion that is supposed to attach to the arm scythe became the full ruffle with a narrow hem. The opposite side now became the arm scythe. The center of the sleeve is offset to the shoulder seam, toward the back, by about an inch. Without the offset the sleeve would sit too far forward and look funny at the back. Turning the sleeve was actually an accident but I liked the results so I don't have any plans to "fix" them. :)
