Oooh, that looks nice in a print, sewingj. I've been trying to find a pic of mine. It was on the TSF gallery but I can only find a slightly fuzzy pic at the moment.

It was more the shape of the dress.  The bell sleeves could be any length.

Fair enough!

I also have similar shape issues. I made this one:

in the cap sleeved version and it was very easy. Wouldn't be too difficult to extend the sleeves I don't think. It has been very wearable.

Vogue 8871

I have made this dress a couple of times, it is designed for 2 way stretch fabrics so very quick and easy to make up with the overlocker.
It's not easy being this perfekt
