I managed to get one sleeve done for my blue velvet dress. One. Somehow it didn't exactly turned out as planned. I altered and futzed and bitched, but I just couldn't get them working the way I wanted to. And I didn't have enough fabric to cut new sleeves! I could have pieced new ones, but...ugh, all those seams? I hate doing that.
But just in case, I checked my velvet leftovers, and it turns out I DID have enough fabric. Whew! I cut new ones, in a different shape/design, and new linings out of the old linings (so I won't have to paint the little gold dots on them all over again), and they're going to work perfectly. YAY OMG!
