I am going to preface this post by saying I can’t believe I am posting these pics on the web. But here we go. I’m in the middle of sewing up a dress. It comes from vintage Butterick 3549 and I’m stuck. I’ve followed the pattern to a tee…and for the most part it has come out great. I learned how to sew an elastic waist on the dress, I’ve sewn pintucks for the first time, but then I got to the sleeves. This is a 70’s pattern and the sleeves have a bit of poof (a bit is an understatement). So this poof makes me feel like a….hmm….football player. What would you do? Sleeveless? Cap sleeve? Help…please….I don’t want to look like a football player!
