There's statement sleeves and there's the statement sleeves. Mindy definitely falls in the latter category. This Balkan inspired dress with a gorgeous square neckline (another super trend!) is destined to be a hit! Love the big sleeves, but not wild about the puffy effect? Leave out the elastic in the sleeve hem and you've got yourself a pair of fluttery butterfly sleeves. Mindy is neatly fitted at the bust, with an A-line skirt that slightly flares. Want to wear this pattern as a pretty tunic or blouse? Find out how to make it happen in 1, 2, 3 here .

Fabric advice

Mindy should be made in a fabric with a bit of body, for example, cotton, jacquard weave, brocade, broderie anglaise, etc. Solids, prints and subtle textures all work. Want to bring out the ultra romantic side of this dress? Make it in white!

Are you more of a butterfly sleeve girl than a puffed sleeve girl? Then go for a fabric with a fluid drape.
