I've waxed lyrical about puffed sleeved in the past, so there's no need for me to do so again in this blog post.
Suffice to say, my inner Anne Shirley will never not get a thrill from puffed sleeves. Leg-o-mutton, bishop, poet, or gigot - I'll take them all!
However, puffed sleeves do have one slight down side this time of year. They can be hard to fit under wraps. Have you ever tried showing a puffed sleeve inside a non-puffed sweater sleeve? That can be uncomfortable! I've made myself a nice heavy coat with full sleeves perfect for housing my puffed arm covers on the coldest of days, but what about those days that don't require a full coat? What about the days where only a light extra layer is needed (or those days it's so cold you want an extra layer to wear around the house)? Suzanne Winter, of Winter Wear Designs, has devised a solution for this problem!
It's a sleeved wrap scarf thingy - and it's fabulous!!!
It's like a socially acceptable wearable blanket, with dramatic sleeve-ish things. Can it get any better than that?
I don't actually know what to call this thing - but I'm thrilled with it!
|Yes, it can double as a scarf too!|
Coincidentally, WWD just came out with a pattern featuring leg-o-mutton (also called mutton chop) sleeves! I made it up for myself using the same jersey I used for the cuffs of my wrap!
