Starting Sleeves

After another long day at work involving HMI and a meeting few new parents I was tempted to go straight to bed, but thought an hour of sewing might rid me of some work demons. And it did.
Today I started on my Simplicity 2741 shirt sleeves. I was making the slash opening at the lower edge of the sleeve – another first, adding a continuous lap. To begin with I wasn’t sure what I was actually doing, but as I moved logically through the steps it began to become clear. They are in no way perfect but not bad for a first try I reckon, and I get a real pleasure from seeing the contrast of different fabrics next to each other.
