For my IRCC project, I wanted a set of sleeves slashed and trimmed in a spiral. Originally I had intended to make the woolen pinked Clarice sleeves reverse to this planned spiral slashed sleeve. But now I am re-considering that concept. Here is a woodcut showing a spiral sleeve:
That row of slashes had to go but I didn't want to have to cut a new sleeve. Inspiration struck. I took out the basting stitches for the trim below the fray guard disaster and added another piece of fabric using two rows of straight stitching that will be hidden by the trim. Then I re-cut the slashes through the damaged part and into the patched piece and cut the shape of the sleeve top before cutting away the damaged section with pinking shears. In this photo, I slid pattern paper between the damaged and patched section to show the layers before I cut the sleeve top shape.
Sleeves one with the braid attached and the other before applying the braid.
To prepare my sleeves for lining, I run a row of basting stitches at the wrist stitching line and press under at the stitching. When I sew the side seam I put basting stitches in the 4" at the wrist opening and press the whole seam open. I fold the intersecting press marks together at both corners of each sleeve opening and miter that corner. The lining is treated in the same way. Then, I turn the lining inside out, put right sides together with the sleeve and stitch together at the armhole seam, grade the seam with pinking shears, turn the lining into the sleeve, press well, and hand stitch the lining to the sleeve at the wrist edge and opening. I prefer hand sewing on straight the straight edges of the wrist rather than at the curved shoulder of the sleeve.
