It Worked! - Eased Sleeves

I made the sleeves to my 70's floral dress last night and tried them on. They did not fit. Far, far to tight around the top of my arms. But i carried on regardless and fitted them to the dress using the easing in method. 

I have never eased sleeves before and thought that it sounded rather complicated and that i was bound to fail. I just did it, thinking that this would just be practice as the sleeves were far to tight. Much to my surprise i worked first time, and not only that the sleeve fit perfectly. 

I still have to fit the next sleeve, let hope that this one works out too.
