So I'm not happy with how the sleeves turned out. In my opinion, epic fail. But now I have a better knowledge of the construction theory and can adapt the process into future dresses. I might get another 2 yards of the same fabric and re-do the sleeves at a later date. For now I am deciding on whether to make some quickie short sleeves or deal with the one I made... I'm just not happy, but I may be the only one who notices (unless I bring it up).
I plan to get some pictures this weekend and share the finished dress. (The dress won't have the crescent appliques for this weekend, so another update when those are attached will be made.)
Off to hand sewing...
