Today, in our sewing tutorial, we’ll show you how to finish off a lace sleeve with a casing at the wrist.
- Start by stitching a ribbon onto the right side of the lace to create a channel. Run the stitching lines 1 mm from the edges on both sides to form a channel (casing). Give it a good press.
- Feed a piece of elastic thread through the casing you’ve created. You can use a large needle, pushing it through with the blunt end, or a small hair pin. Be sure to measure out a comfortable length of elastic for your wrist beforehand.
- Fold the sleeve piece right sides together, match the ends of the casing, and sew the edges together all the way down.
