Eww, cap sleeves

I purchased this dress from the Gap's new "European Collection" on sale. I tried it on and it fit like a glove, which is pretty much unheard of for me. Even the length was perfect (I'm 5'2" -- length is never perfect). But when I looked in the mirror...cap sleeves. I can't see what the point of cap sleeves is, unless you are blessed with perfectly toned (but not muscular) arms. Alas, I am not. Nor is the model in the picture, actually, but her airbrushed toothpick arms hide the fact that the sleeves are capped. I think I'm going to have to return the dress, which is a shame since it fits so well.

Do cap sleeves look good on anyone???

You could always take it to a tailor and have the sleeves removed. It would look cute as a tank dress, and it shouldn't cost much to have it done.

I was going to suggest the same thing as f.f. - or possibly doing it yourself, depending on how well attached the sleeves are.

It's too cute (and it fits perfectly) to throw back if the sleeves can be fixed.

and no - they don't really look good on anyone, unless that person looks good in anything.
