^^This is the ruched sleeve option! Ruching is such an underused technique in my opinion and it’s SO easy. So I added this to the pattern. It’s a soft and feminine look. The other sleeve option is the angled cap sleeve shown in the first photo in this post.
^^It looks like I am picking bugs off my daughter, but I’m not! She has the cutest little curls, I am just “Boinging” them. Like Ramona the Brave ;)
I’ll show you more of my arrowhead chiffon top soon! Chiffon is great for the skirt portion of this top.
