Pattern Style 12 Additional Sewing Instructions

The sleeves are the last thing you will make for this gown and they get finished after the gown is done.

Sleeves: Use the fold line as your selvage guide line. Cut 2.
1. Right sides together, fold long edges together. Stitch 2 lines of gathering stitches along the long edge, leaving the short ends open to turn.
2. Turn sleeve right side out. Pull the gathering stitches in to fit the upper arm of the doll. Tie off the gathering stitches on each end.
3. Stitch the 2 short ends together by folding one in 1/4" and tucking the other end inside the folded-in end. Hand stitch.
4. Attach the sleeve to the top of the dress at the side seam with just a few hand stitches.
