Sew the sleeves seams as French seams (double seams): First lay the fabric pieces wrong sides facing and stitch the 1.5 cm (5/8 in) wide seam allow¬ances together, 7 mm (1/4 in) from the edge. Press seam allowances open. Then lay the pieces right sides facing so that the seam lies exactly along the fold. Now stitch along marked seam line, 8 mm (a generous 1/4 in) from fold edge. Press seam allowances to one side.
