Puffed Sleeves

"Oh, I am grateful," protested Anne. "But I'd be ever so much gratefuller if - if you'd made just one of them with puffed sleeves. Puffed sleeves are so fashionable now. It would give me such a thrill, Marilla, just to wear a dress with puffed sleeves."

- Anne Shirley
Anne of Green Gables

So what if she might have had to "turn sideways to get through the door", her puffed sleeves were magnificent. I absolutely share Anne's love of big sleeves and am thrilled that they're back in a big way this season. I find them to be the perfect feminine attribute to just about any garment. So flirty and fun.

Oh I just looooved the Anne of Green Gables series. I read all those books multiple times, but the first one was always the best.

Love your inspiration! Actually having a Anne marathon tomorrow with some friends and was browsing online to find puffed sleeves to wear, great modern looks.
