The JamCat Fleece Project – Sleeves!!! Part 2, Attaching the sleeve to the body with a gusset

I can feel the excitement building can’t you?  The moment of truth has arrived and it is time to sew in the gussets and attach the sleeve to the body of the jacket.

I cut out the little triangle pieces for the gusset.  Just a little note here, I slightly curve the inner edge along the hypotenuse of the triangle.  This will give a slight curve under the arm.  Then I sew each of these to either side of the sleeve…DSCF0526

Topstitch …DSCF0528 And then sew the sleeve to the body, and follow it up with my #10 overcast stitch along the raw edges…DSCF0534 DSCF0535

And topstitch the sleeve, seam allowance toward the body…DSCF0539

The Pit-Zips are up next!
