Sleeve pictures

I have my computer back, so uploading pictures will be a little easier. So here are a few to begin with.

Showing the sleeve of the blue chemise. I still need to do the other sleeve, and hem this one, but I like how it came out. I used the same blue cord for the button loops that I used to lace up the backs of both chemises. I love how the trim looks! There will also be trim underneath the bust, but I'm waiting to do that until I have the other sleeve done.

Both chemises worn together. When I can next get to Joanns, I will be picking up some gold braid to wrap around the upper sleeve.

All three layers. The bodice still needs eyelets (hence why it looks so wonky, since I'm holding it closed) and I still need to turn over the edges at the armseyes.
