The sleeve from Loretti 5217 ,- great for jersey fabric

I never made the whole wrap dress in this pattern, but the sleeves have become one of my favorites. I made these two dresses with a very simple straight up and down bodice, just adding these extravagant sleeves. I find it works best with a good jersey.

The first version is the gold. It is from December 2010. The other one I just made about a month ago.

When working with this pattern I find it is very important to baste. I am adding a photo of the pleats before they were sewn in place.
