The sleeves are on the coat! I dithered about the sleeves for a while, because they are very full. I considered re-drafting the sleeve so it would not be quite so balloon-shaped. Then I decided that I should just go whole hog and make the sleeves as drafted. I finished them on Christmas, but have been out of town and visiting people, so I’m just getting around to taking photos.
I found the sleeves to be shockingly full at first, but they have grown on me. Good thing, too, because the event is tonight, and I don’t really want to wear a trench coat over my gown.
I will try to get photos of me in the outfit, but it will be my husband taking the photos. He is generally uncooperative about taking full-body photos, and tends to take lovely photos of my face. Nice and all, but not really what you want to see in a sewing blog.
I’d better go get started with hair or makeup or something.
