Pique Simplicity 2443 – Part VI

Woohoo, almost done! The sleeves are in now so all I have left is a final press and closures. I can’t wait to move the ticker tomorrow!


I used the sleeve placket as designed this time. I didn’t care much for the method but it works. Because of the weight of the fabric, I did not interface the sleeve bands. Instead, I cut my bands on the lengthwise grain for stability, which worked out just fine.
