The second sleeve is in process of creation. On velvet I must use many pins, because it moves when I sew.. You can also see a pattern that I used for this - I layed it seven times on each sleeve.
I still don't know what to use as a decoration for edges. I would take a twisted cord, I think that the thicker one looks better..
I'm very lucky and happy today! I don't have the old meter anymore, the one that has short centimeters. I got a new one from my mum. It's very nice and it looks like the right meter for true dressmakers :-)))
