1/2 sleeve summer shirt - Finished

Here it is.  Yes I know, it turned out long sleeve.  I went a little overboard on the ruffles.  I still like it.

I got a really nice compliment on it from the local cashier at Walmart.  She asked where she could get one like it.  I told her I made it and it was my own design.  She told me I was very talented.  (HA fooled her).

Anyway, below is the sleeve detail.  I really like them.

Lessons learned -

1.  Measure sleeves a lot better.  To be 1/2 sleeve I needed a much shorter ruffle and shorter sleeves.

2.  I need more practice setting in sleeves.

3.  I, maybe, should have ironed the fabric before I started cutting.  (I hate ironing).
