Jacket Beats Pajamas
I was distracted by those interruptions and ended up sewing the cuff on the right sleeve three times and still didn't get it right. You can't tell in this fuzzy photo but I've done the same hand stitching on the cuffs as for the pockets. When I made the muslin I did not put the cuffs on and decided to lengthen the sleeves 1 1/2 inches. I stitched the cuffs on, tried the jacket on and realized I hated the longer length. Ok, cut it off, sew the sleeve seams and little wider and re sew the cuff. Whoops, one side looks better than the other with that hand stitching. Unsew again and try one more time.
Off to do more handwork, this time down the front edges and around the collar.
