Its summer, its hot and I like to wear sleaveless dresses. I also have tattoos. Sometimes I need to throw on something to cover said tattoos so as to not offend my mother, my daughters current boyfriends parents, random people at Walmart or potential buyers. I need something light enough to be comfortable, cute enough to want to wear, yet heavy enough to keep my lovely art covered as needed. My tattoos end just above the elbow, so elbow length or 3/4 sleeves would be perfect.
