The Scientific world of Sleeve "Poofs"

Alright! Now that my mother has unraveled the world of sewing with organza, the sleeves are moving forward. It takes a bit longer then sewing with another fabric because I have to take the time to go back over every seam and rip away the tissue paper I used as a stabilizer. Also, since Organza has a tendency to ravel, I'm using French seams. A french seam is a bit complicated to explain, but easy to do. It's basically a seam enclosed on itself to prevent raveling.

I have no idea what a French seam is or what is French about it, so I am duly impressed.
Nice ring.
