Bubble sleeve cardigan

New creation! Sometimes it takes me a couple days to complete one project, and this was one of them. I sewed a bit and then stopped for a while to think about how to add sleeves. The arm holes came out too big, so if I add regular sleeves, it would end up looking like a cardigan for a man or something. So I slept on it for a day or two, and came up with this idea of bubble sleeves. I pleated the shoulder part and scrunched up the edge of the sleeves with elastic bands to make them bubbly.
Here is the picture of the front panel - I did not use any pattern for this.
I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out - it's loose, and comfy. I added this to my shop:)
