As you can see the jacket is getting a lot closer to finishing. There is some topstitching still to be done on the outside. The photo shows the sleeves when they were only basted.
This is the sleeve after stitching, removing the basting and gathering threads and adding a sleevehead (wrap) to the sleeve. For this I used the method that is described perfectly by Ann Rowley here. The link goes to her Flickr album and she described the process below her photos. Below some detail photos of my process.
Some extra information on seam allowances: the lower third of the seam I trim back to 0,5 cm, after making an additional stitch line close to the original one. The rest I keep to about 1 cm and is my starting point to adding the sleevehead/wrap.
A small/thin shoulderpad must still be inserted. I’ve run out of my stash of these, so will have to wait a little. Buttons will be an issue too! It’s expected that all non essential shops will remain closed till February 9. I don’t want to order buttons online.
