    For two days I’ve been puzzling over how to finish the bell sleeve hem. Is is simply a 1/4 inch turned twice and topstitched? I’ve zoomed in on blog posts and can’t tell if this is how it was done.
    I’m returning to sewing after nearly 40 years and can usually figure things out, but I am baffled.

    Hi @pegalot
    The instructions for finishing the bell sleeve are on page 3. There are detailed steps there that show how the sleeve is finished using the sleeve facing.
