Caped-sleeve Bolero part two

We last left off with sewing on the facing . . .

Sew it on, clip seam allowances around curves, then press.


I ALWAYS understitch my linings and facings to keep them hidden from the right side. This step makes for a much nicer finished project.


Sew up the sides, finish the armholes, and onto the sleeves.


I finished the edges of the caped sleeves with my serger, then folded down and pressed the top edge. I basted it in place with a regular glue stick, and pressed it again to seal the glue. This will wash right out in the future.


Pin the sleeves into place and call it a day.
