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.
