Still have an insecure and pregnant mama cat, and so I've been using my time of sitting near her, by doing a lot of hand sewing and I just added the sleeves to the bodice this morning (a backview):
I just love how the sleeves fit into the armholes like a glove! In previous makings of this dress, I felt like the sleeve wasn't in there properly or something. Turns out that the pattern did indeed have a couple of wrong markings, but they have been remedied, and now I can actually enjoy putting these sleeves in!
Now to just figure out how to do french seams on the armcycle of the sleeves...
EDIT: Okay, never mind. Apparently what I'm doing is called "flat-felled" seams, and not french seams. As they say, "you learn something new every day!" =) And I think I'm going to make some same-fabric bias tape, and use that to bind the inside of sleeves.
