I have a friend that needed some pretty cap sleeves added to her wedding dress. She gave me a chiffon wrap that I turned into her pleated cap sleeve. The one issue I was having was trying to figure out how to finish the inside edge since the fabric was see through. I don't know how to use my serger that does a baby lock and I haven't had much practice using my roll foot. So after a few different experiments I ended up with this how to. I really wanted to do a french seam, but my fabric was very limited.
What do you think of these summery styles?
