Bunch the sleeve rounding through slightly tightening the under threads of the stitch lines.
Position the sleeves onto the armhole, the right sides are facing. When you apply the sleeve 4 points are to be considered for the “perfect fit”: The cross lines (8) of sleeves and front piece have to meet. The sleeve seams and side seams have to meet. The cross lines of the sleeve rounding have to meet the shoulder seam. The width of the sleeve rounding has to be distributed equally. Pin the sleeve from the side of the sleeve (not from the side of the shoulder), and stitch. Trim allowances, neaten altogether and press inside the sleeve (a).
Fold the hemline to the inside and press, fold again and baste. Stitch the seam narrowly (b).
Apply BUTTONHOLES onto the right front piece and the sleeve cuffs. Sew the Buttons by hand.
