The reason I am telling you this is because I needed those pats on the back!!! Honestly, I have been sewing since junior high but there are times I still manage to mess up royally. This time not only did I sew my two piece sleeves together incorrectly but also serged them and zig-zagged elastic to shirr the sleeves before I figured out my mistake. After watching mindless tv while I tried to pick out all the stitches, I decided to see if the sleeves would fit if I cut those seams off and started over. Yeah for skinny arms:):) Honestly, this knit tunic would have ended up a wadder if didn't already have pants to go with it (and new boots) Onward and upward!!! So the answer to that sewing question "when do you stop making stupid mistakes?" is NEVER in my case:) I did finish the top and really like it - especially the sleeves:) Funny, back in the 60's I wore dresses this length:) It is hemmed fingertip length!!!
