    I love the idea of using this to extend sleeves that are just a little too short, a problem I run into a lot as not tall enough for the tall sizes and too tall for regular sizes

      I’m glad you can find this helpful and hope you will give it a try. I’ve always enjoyed wearing bell sleeves. I think the style is something that gives your sleeves a bit of femine movement that it wouldn’t have otherwise.

        I think they look so nice. Long sleeve shirts have just been completely plain and straight down the arm on the sleeves for the last several years, I’m glad we all have started to realize we can have fun with them again!
