I bought this gorgeous Japanese double-gauze from The Cloth Pocket (it’s sadly sold out now).
To best utilize this fantastic print I had to fussy cut all the pieces which meant I didn’t have enough room for the full-length sleeves.
I didn’t make any changes to the body of the dress (I even kept the original hem length. In my previous version, I shortened the hem). But I did alter the sleeve.
This method adds slightly more range of movement in the arm while also keeping the original length of the sleeve cap intact so you don’t have to alter the armhole on the dress. Maybe I’ll do a quick tutorial on that technique in the future.
I love how soft and flowy this dress is – as you can tell from these pics taken on a windy day.
