NOT IN LOVE...WILL HAVE TO ALTER



I am not loving this blouse! The sleeves are too large and too puffy (caused by gathering) at the sleeve head, and the size of the sleeve its self. It didn't appear that way in the design picture for the pattern. So that all will not be loss, I'm thinking about removing the sleeves and tapering them down to a smaller size throughout because the overly gathered look is just not me right now. Otherwise it's a nice dressy feeling blouse.
