Not bad, the end result is a pretty top but it takes a bit of fidgeting to get the top of the sleeve flush with the facing seam. Wondering if the diaper type snaps could be used instead of a snap and button...would have to have a small piece of interfacing in between the facing and back tab, I think, for stability.
