Would anyone know the “formula” for putting a decorative slit (vertical) in a band around the edge of a 3/4 length sleeve on a jacket? I don’t have a ready made garment or anything available to check. I think it should be on the side of the arm where a cuff would open but it would look strange if it were in the wrong place. I suppose that I could put it in the seam but that might also look as if it shouldn’t be there.
I am making the jacket for Burda 8241. I have made this pattern many times and I am searching for a way to vary the sleeves/band. The finished band is 13 inches and two inches deep.
I would like to make a hidden placket for the button/buttonholes with the extra fabric folded under (hiding the buttonholes). Does anyone know a source of directions for that. I’m certain it would help if I knew the correct term to search! I have a smashing brooch and don’t want the buttons to detract.
Thanks ever so much.
