Sleeves update

So the sleeves are constructed.....just need to do button, lace cuff and figure out how the aitch-ee-doublehockeysticks to attach them!
My mom and dad spent the afternoon yesterday making yards and yards of velvet tubes (for which I am forever grateful!), now I just need to sort through the actual attaching! Hopefully with some sleep I can come up with something!
I had someone drop out on a piece of clothing earlier today, so I'm hoping I can finish the sleeves and the last minute chemise tomorrow, leaving me 2 days to do laundry, pack, and do any last minute stuff.......wish me luck!


  1. I've seen many people successfully attach paned upper sleeves with little buttons.  I've also seen one person lace them in, but in a tight weaving way, without dangling ribbons.

  2. Good luck, I'm excited to hear how you decide to attach the sleeves!
