Frequent question: How do you sew sleeves into armholes?

How can you tell which sleeve goes into which armhole?

Single notches are always used to indicate the front of a sleeve and the armhole on the pattern front. Double notches are always used to indicate the back of a sleeve and the armhole on the pattern back. By matching the notches, you will always be able to tell which sleeve goes in which armhole.

How do you finish an armhole seam?

To finish an armhole, press in the edge along the seamline and sew close to the fold. Trim away the excess fabric close to the stitching line. Appliqué scissors work well for trimming. Fold the edge in again and sew in place.
