A newbie's progress on Eiffel!

As a new knitter, I was doing great with the bodice of Eiffel, but it all went downhill when I attempted to knit the 1st sleeve! You can read all the nutty details on my blog.
Here is the bodice on Betsy (my new dressform):
Here is the lovely sleeve:
I am shortening the sleeves to become 3/4" length, due to a serious lack of yarn. I still have about 4" before I will be ready to start on the next sleeve, which I hope won't cause me as much trouble! So long from sleeve island!

I am also shortening my sleeves because of yarn shortage in my stash

Robin - I got my dressform at Rox Studio, model # JF-F01Mleg. The only drawback is that it isn't adjustable, but I just picked the one closest to my measurements. So far it works great and it is very lightweight.

Thanks for the encouraging comments on Eiffel. I really appreciate them.

I love it!! It makes me consider knitting the Eiffel. Your yarn choose is really pretty and I think it will look great with at 3/4 lenght sleeve
