I love to use Pinterest as my virtual bulletin board. As you might guess many of my pins are sewing related. Click here to see what fun stuff I've found and pinned to different sewing boards.

En Curso/ In Progress: The Placket Faced Monster ( Shirt B5526)

This  YouTube Video by "Fashion Sewing Blog TV" , does a very nice job of showing how to sew a sleeve placket.
I'm glad I had my original muslin to test with
That way, I won't be wasting the remnants of my
jungle print fashion fabric

 I wasn't expecting to need to alter anything about the cuff, since I'm not aware that we changed anything about the bottom of the sleeve, but it seemed to me that the placket strip, was too short for the placket opening. I followed along with the great placket video linked above, so I think I know what I'm doing. As a result of testing this, I'll be adding a little length to my placket strip before I cut one for the jungle print test garment.
