Although this month’s theme is “lace”, I am not really a lacy kind of girl. So, I chose to go with a burn-out leopard print that has sort of a lacey look. A much better choice for me. The top had elbow length sleeves that hung down almost to my wrists, so I folded them up to the shoulder seam, and ironed and sewed them in place. I suspect that because of my short arms, a sleeve any longer than this looks odd on my arm. And even after rolling it it is about the same length as shown on the stock photo below.

I wanted to see if I could make it work with both a skirt and leggings and I am pleased with each look and it is VERY comfy so I am sure I will wear it a lot. Maybe today!
