Sleeves Done!

The sleeves are totally done and just  need to be installed in the jacket. Above you see the trimmed cuff and button and the interior area of the other cuff. The back of the hand worked BH is a bound BH. I like this finish. You can also see how this jacket has no facings as the pattern required. Instead I chose to do an edge to edge lining. To the bottom of the interior cuff you can see the lining fell stitched to the edge. The edge on the left is the trimmed hem. Here the lining needed to pleat to provide wearing ease for the arm. You can barely see the imprint of the pleat from ironing. So the bottom edge of the cuff has a half inch of fabric with the lining fell stitched to it. Then the lining falls in a pleat with the edge of the pleat meeting the fell stitching. Hope this is clear. Its done. I am not sure when the sleeves will be put in. I am scheduled for some surgery next week, on Wednesday, and tomorrow I leave for New England to visit my children and grands first. I will be back Tuesday and then surgery Wednesday! I have been told it should all go smoothly and not to expect any issues with the surgery. I will be laid up for about a week and then back to reality. So my blogging may be a bit sporadic for a bit. I will be checking in as much as possible on the Dashboard so you may hear from me there. Till then.......Bunny
