ย Cut a piece of scrap fabric using the measurement you took for the back x 2″ย wide.

ย Sew a straight line down the center
ย You should have 3 lines
ย Cut a 36″ piece of ribbon and pin the safety pin to the end of the ribbon
Insert from the bottom up one side
Then go back in on the other side from the top and out of the bottom.
ย Pull both ends to create the gathering. You can pull as much or as little as you want.
Working with the sleeve
ย Fold over 3/8″” and pin until you create 3 pleats in the center of the sleeve
Once pinned take it to the sewing machine
ย Sew down the middle of the pleats and backstitch to secure. REMOVE your pins as you get to them. NEVER sew over pins.
