The final step in sleeve tutorial

You will need to stitch two lines of very wide plain stitching for gathering of the sleeve....
I leave a 5 mm opening for the safety pin access.... this is a view of the elastic beoing threaded in...

The silk facing will be used to form a tunel for threading of the narrow elastic ... I would recomend using a 20cm piece of a 3mm wide elastic. This is a very conservetive measurement for the sleeve opening.

The above photo shows you the two lines of stitching that form the tunel for the elastic to be threaded through.
