How to sew . . . a shirt sleeve cuff

How to sew a shirt sleeve cuff

Toni-Maree from Bobbins & Co is back today to share an alternate method for sewing the cuff on the Archie Shirt (by Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns from Issue 6 of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine).

This method can also be used to sew cuffs on other shirts.

Sewing cuffs is one of those techniques that once you find the method that works for you you’ll be all set! Sometimes it takes trying out a few different tutes/patterns to find the one that’s right for you.  So in the hopes that this method is the one that gives you your “eureka” moment lets jump right in!

Alternate cuff method for the Archie Shirt 1

  1. Iron your cuff piece in half and then on one side, pre-iron the 1cm seam allowance to the wrong side.

2. Sew the un-ironed side of the cuff, right sides together, to the bottom of the sleeve.

3.  Fold the cuff in half, the wrong way, so that the right sides of the cuff are facing.

4. Sew the ends of the cuff shut. Make sure your seam aligns with the edge of the placket.
