long sleeves make me look all dumpy and broad so I wear 3/4 length when ever I can.

I HATE them!!! If I want a jumper I want bloody sleeves! IT really gets on my nerves when I find a nice fitted v-neck top and then it only has half its sleeves!!

And I know JT is with us on ths one!

I love them, cos I hate things around my wrists, but I need something to cover the flobby bits at the top and my wrinkly, misshapen elbows.....

So there.....

Make my dd wear them too, to avoid cuffs in jam syndrome......

I'm annoyed with Isabella Oliver because everything I'd like from there has annoying three quarter sleeves - the wrap cardigan and the wrap dress for instance. I emailed them to complain actually

I like them because they are flattering and you can show off your bracelets!!

beachyhead Mon 14-Mar-05 17:06:27

Do you have your hands by your side a lot, then?

Emma - oh no!!!

Actually I do have a bright green v-neck and it does have 3/4 length sleeves - I like it cos it shows off a watch and bracelet but I don't like it cos I get cold!!!

Prefer long sleeves and even better I like them fluted at the ends but don't see many of these around.

Don't like them on jumpers as they rather defeat th object of wearing a jumper but I'm quite happy with them on t-shirts.

Polgara2 Mon 14-Mar-05 17:11:54

No, no, no, and no again!!!!

Gwenick Mon 14-Mar-05 17:13:34

nikcola Mon 14-Mar-05 17:14:25

i like them too so does dd x

beachyhead Mon 14-Mar-05 17:14:25

better than 3/4 lenth trousers, I say, which are only good for paddling in the sea IYAM (if you ask me!!!!!!)

katierocket Mon 14-Mar-05 17:15:04

i like 3/4 length sleaves - flattering IMO

Smurfgirl Mon 14-Mar-05 17:17:30

I live in 3/4 sleeves. I hate having anything round my wrists, and I don't like to show 3/4 of my arms because they are icky!

Gwenick Mon 14-Mar-05 17:18:47

oh I agree - can't stand 3/4 length trousers
