LC Anne's Dress
Anne, of course, was referring the latest fashion trend she simply couldn’t live without; the very thing Marilla told her was frivolous and a waste of material - puffed sleeves.
Of course this is not the late 1800s and these are not puffed sleeves.
These sleeves are pleated.
However, if Anne were living now this is what she’d be gushing over. Of course we’re forgoing the full body coverage and corset in favor of a more comfortable, unencumbered look, encouraging you to dig into the chiffonier to fetch your favorite necklace or that statement belt you’ve been dying to show off. You may even consider changing your name.
Anne's Dress (No. 4923). Light and drapey stretch twill. Elbow length sleeves with seven horizontal pleats extending all the way around. Body is stretch lined. Sleeves are unlined. Bust darts. Knee length. Invisible zipper in back.
