Next up for views B, D, and F of the Hovea jacket is sewing together and inserting the inset sleeves.
Later on, we will be showing the flat sleeve insertion method for views A, C, E, which you can certainly use for views B, D, F as well. But this inset sleeve method was found to be better for the quilted and bound versions for reducing bulk.
Fold the sleeve in half with right sides together.
Sew together 5/8″ from the raw edge.
Bind the sleeve seam with bias binding, using the same method we talked about in this post. Don’t forget to grade back the seam to reduce bulk!
This is important – you can’t see it here in my photo, but press the seams towards the opposite direction that your jacket side seam is pressed. This is to reduce bulk at the underarm.
Place your coat in front of you with the wrong side of the fabric facing out.
Again, make sure your side seam is pressed in the opposite direction as the sleeve seam.
Make sure you have marked the sleeve cap notch from the sleeve pattern piece.
Turn your sleeve right side out.
Slide your sleeve inside the jacket armscye with right sides together.
Line up the raw edges and pin together. Make sure the sleeve cap notch is lined up with the shoulder seam, and the sleeve seam lines up with the side seam.
Here you can see how the side seam and sleeve seam are lined up, but the seam allowances are facing in opposite directions to reduce bulk.
Sew the sleeve to the jacket 5/8” from the raw edge.
Bind the edge of the armscye seam using the basic binding method we talked about in this post.
Make sure you grade back the seams first, and pick which option you will use to join the two ends of the binding since the armscye is a continuous edge.
Again, here is the seam allowance at the underarm going in opposite directions. If they both would’ve been going in the same direction, it would’ve been too bulky to sew the binding at that spot.
Press the seam allowance towards the sleeve, and thats it!
