Sewing Instructions, Day 3

Now it's time to finish the sleeves as it is much easier when they're not attached to the bodice.

On the inside hand sew the top part of the under flap to the lining to keep it in place.
Two buttonholes go in each sleeve. I machine stitch them first and then over the top by hand with the buttonhole silk. It gives the Tweed extra stability and stops it from fraying.
Finally, attach the buttons to the sleeve.
