I, myself, was fairly surprised that Burda decided to put gigantic gathered sleeves on wide dropped shoulders, which was not at all evident in the pattern photo.
The effect is impressive when the wind catches it just right.
The question I'm posing to the general public is: is it that bad? Should I cut off the sleeves and make the shoulder narrower? Or remove bulk from the sleeves - or both? I really like this fabric - dotted swiss from fabric.com.
