Jane, I have a little tip that is useful for me. After stitching the cuff to the sleeve (step #2)from one dot to the other, I trim the SA as step #3 indicates, but I don’t press it away from the sleeve. That makes it easier to sew again the last inch of the previously stitched seam to the basting line of the facing in step #4, pushing the sleeve inside the cuff a little bit. In fact I don’t even roll the edge, just push it gently inside the cuff, that at this point is turned right-side in. After stitching again that last inch, pivoting at the dot, and sewing the curved portion to the dot, and turning the cuff right-side out, I finger press both the SA away from the sleeve and the cuff facing along the basting line. And then, I edgestitch the cuff.
I hope this makes sense… I have just sewn a recital shirt sleeve cuff, but I have not neither pictures nor videos from the process. I’m planning to sew a classic shirt next week. I’ll try to take some pictures and post them.
