1. Iron the inside sleeve edge by 1/4. Iron over again by 1/4. Sew down with a narrow stitch.
Iron seam. Do again for other sleeve.
2. Do the same for the outside edge of the sleeves. Iron the inside sleeve edge by 1/4. Iron over again by 1/4. Sew down with a narrow stitch.
Iron seam. Do again for other sleeve. If you are using knit you could either leave it raw and cut off a half an inch or if you have a serger, cut off a half and inch and serge the edge.
3. Sew sleeve edge to arm hole of front piece, then sew to arm hole of back piece. Repeat for other sleeve.
4. Hem bottom of skirt by folding over 1/2" and sew with a zigzag stitch. Trim extra allowance.
