Here's the pink shirt in all its glory.
Let's start with the positive:
1. I love LOVE the ruffle collar.
2. The wrapness is slimming.
3. It fits.
1. I hate the sleeves. I mean despise them. I thought I could learn to love them, but I can't. I keep trying to convince myself that they go with the ruffle, but with the color and the ruffles on the neckline, the sleeves just feel like too much.
2. The color is a perfect pepto pink. But that I can live with.
So I just may rip the sleeves out and see if I can make them less clownish. We all know how much I hate ripping seams out, so if that's any indication of how much I hate the sleeves... What do you think? Any suggestions for the sleeves? Cap? 3/4 length? I don't have more fabric, so I have to shorten and narrow them if anything. I'm open to ideas.
I made this from McCalls 5323, view B.
