Miss Madeline with LONG sleeves

I have had several request for this since it has been getting colder, so yesterday I put together a little tutorial for making the pattern with long sleeves (any size). This tutorial would probably work for your other patterns too, as long as it's a gathered sleeve. Just click HERE to get the free PDF. You will have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find it, and as usual you are welcome to any or all of the other freebies on that page. If anyone has pictures of their long sleeved Miss Madelines that you wouldn't mind sharing I would love to post one so everyone could get an idea of what it looks like. Thanks!

Tanya was so sweet to offer her pictures of her long sleeved Miss Madeline so that you could get an idea of how it would look. She used the Miss Madeline pattern to make a sweet little top. All ya have to do is shorten the pattern and omit (if you desire) the waistband. She also added some sweet little pockets to hers too. She said that the picture on top has more fitted sleeves and the picture below has a little more puff (directions for both styles are in the tutorial). Thank you Tanya!

Someone else has also offered pictures that I will post as soon as I get them!

Expert seamstress and mindreader! I was just thinking how cute this dress would be with long sleeves! Thanks for the tutorial! Now I want to know how to make those adorable gathered pockets pictured on the shirt version! :-)

I adore this pattern! I bought it last week at a local sewing shop. I have made 5 dresses so far! Thanks for the long sleeve add on! I noticed the gathered pockets....how do you do that? =0)
Thanks for such a great, easy, well written pattern!
