At the cut edges of the sleeve hem, match the seam or the outside of the sleeve with the seam of the lining and pin together.
Turn the sleeve inside out. Open the underarm seam (or the seam nearest the underarm if there are two seams). A six inch opening should be long enough to pull the hem of the sleeve through.
Mark the lining 1 inch from the cut edge.
Cut the lining on this line, (the lining must be shorter than the outer sleeve or it will show).
This will allow the lining to fall 1/2 inch short of the hem when you have finished hemming the sleeve.
Follow Part 1-3 for the other sleeve.
Hold the jacket up by the shoulders and allow the lining to fall into its proper position.
Lay the jacket on the cutting table (or ironing board) and cut through all the layers (including the lining) on the cutting marks (see Part 1 from yesterday’s post).
The first step for any hem is to try on the garment and pin the hem at the proper place.
For a lined sleeve, mark the cutting line 1 1/4 inches below the desired hem length.
