We’re now onto the last step of our Morris Blazers, attaching the sleeve facings. To begin, sew the edges of each facing together, press the seams open, and grade the seam allowance.

Next sew the narrower edge of the facing to the edge of the sleeve with the underarm seams aligned. Grade the seam allowance by trimming the facing seam allowance in half.

Next understitch along the edge of the facing, this will help turn the seam line to the inside of the sleeve.

Turn the sleeve inside out and press up the 1/2″ seam allowance on the raw edge of the facing.

    Thank you for this fab sew-along. I found it after I got my Morris pattern and it’s be quite helpful so far. I’ve cut out my pieces and am ready to press interfacing and get sewing. I see that there is a 1/2 inch seam on the jacket back. Is 1/2 in seam used on all seams for the Morris? I may have missed this info in my pattern instructions, so excuse me if my question is redundant.
    Thanks!
