Add a Sleeve Split

This technique is courtesy of Sandra Betzina.


  1. The split can be added either before or after the sleeve seam is sewn. It should be positioned opposite the sleeve seam.
  2. Turn the hem to the outside e.g. 1½" hem along the fold line.
  3. Mark an upside-down V at the fold, about 1" wide and not as deep as the hem e.g. 1".
  4. Sew along the V, taking two small stitches with the hand wheel across the top.
  5. Cut out the V of fabric, clipping in close to the point of the V
  6. Turn RS out and press.
