This is a wonderful post on puffy sleeves - If everything else can come back in fashion, why not puffy sleeves? My daughter was telling me recently that "puffy sleeves" were coming back into fashion. Shortly after that conversation I saw in a fashion magazine a designer suit, I think it was, with (indeed!) puffs at the shoulders. And to think when I showed my daughters their grandmother's wedding dress, how they tsked-tsked over those puffy sleeves from 1941. Ha! Great range of puffy sleeves, too, by the way. Love the knits!
