    We live in AZ. It is hot here…already in the 90’s and here I am sewing a Library dress for Easter. I pretty much leave the sleeves off of most patterns. For this one I planned on just using double fold bias tape in place of the sleeves but things are not lining up correctly when I pin the sides. Do the sleeves need to be on the dress to make the skirt line up correctly? It looks like I’m off by about a half inch.

    Has anyone else made this pattern without the sleeves?

    These two in the flickr group have been made sleeveless: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125052458@N02/14433379980 https://www.flickr.com/photos/mrskanuckles/13202953415

    Maybe if you can’t find help here, you could ask on their photo? Though I am sure some lovely lady will chime in and help:)

    I figured it out. I’m still not sure what went wrong but I ended up having to trim the arm hole by a half inch where it connected on the side.

    Here is my little miss in her Easter Library dress!

    I love the cap sleeve look it got after you removed the sleeves 🙂
