This is a blog post on sewing sleeve lining. I have previously written on how to line a garment. And another blog post on lining the garment using the bagging method. In which I have omitted the sewing sleeve lining out just make life easier for beginners or for time-saving. Sewing lining a garment does take time even more so with sleeves as it is much smaller surface area, therefore, will need more fabric manipulation skills and care. This also means taking and using more time as a result.
Sewing sleeve lining
How to sew a sleeve lining is, first of all, is master the bagging method. Once that is done sew the sleeve in place on the lining side. Either that or sew the sleeve lining before using the bagging method. Then sew the hem of sleeve and the hem by pinning first then turning the fabric inside out. Do this till it reaches to the point that becomes too tight to turn the fabric inside out in the hem. This method is also the same the bagging method. It also involves the least amount of hand sewing required. When it comes to the end hand sewing will be required to close this tight opening.
That is it. Sewing sleeve lining does come with practice and precision. if it is possible to pin from inside then turn outside. I use the easy way which is just pinning from the outside or right side of the fabric. Admittedly, I find it some times you don’t get an even finish on the lining and the main fabric. All these take practice and experience to find a method that executes the best finish. So do go ahead and sew more and more.
