Step 12 Setting in the sleeves

Make sure the jacket is turned inside out and the sleeves turned right side out.

Start by pinning each sleeve right sides together with only the underarm curve to the armhole, matching marking on under sleeve to side seam and matching markings on upper sleeve and jacket front.

Then pin shoulder markings on sleeve cap to the shoulder seam. Ease (gather) the fabric of the sleeve cap by pulling the bobbin thread and sliding the fabric along the thread until the sleeve matches the armhole. Make sure the gathering is evenly done. Pin the sleeve cap in place and again, make sure to distribute the eased fullness evenly. Tack and stitch sleeves in place from the sleeve side. Neaten the seam allowances together and lay toward sleeves.
