Just a small note: I was having trouble getting the sleeves to fit smoothly into the armscye (arm hole). I remeasured them to see if perhaps I had included too much ease, as I was only aiming for 2 inches worth of ease. Upon measuring, I find that I have a 5" ease?!?!?!? Whaaaaat?
Off to find a way to resolve this mismeasure. The bright side is that I now feel better about how ridiculous the ease seemed this first try. I mean, it really was ridiculous!
