    Some tines I fnd that lining a peice can be quicker than using a facing or a binding. Lining the short sleeve of the 2 + 2 tunic is pretty easy. Just cut an extra sleeve set from another fabric – which could be a lighter weight or a contrast fabric, etc. It sews up clean and neat. You could even insert piping or ric rack for a cute edege treatment. Using ric rack in between the sleeve and lining gives a saw tooth effect. I don’t usually use a lot of piping (or ric rack) but it would look cute around the sleeves, the patch on the front and at the neck line next to the binding/ties.

    Great idea!

    Here is another: if you cut your fashion fabric sleeve short by say a 1/2″ and your lining sleeve long by say 1″ then sew these together right sides together with a 1/4″ seam, your lining sleeve piece will create a 3/4″ decorative band when the lining piece is flipped so wrong sides of the sleeve pieces are together and the fashion sleeve cap and lining sleeve cap edges are matched; just iron the fold in the lining piece that creates the end of the sleeve before setting the sleeve to the bodice.

    Lizabeth, thank you for decorative band idea. That sounds like (roughly) the methoud used to make a banded ruffle. I was thinking to use that idea on the hem of a straight A-line skirt or bottom edge of a full skirt. Using this technique on a slightly curved edge hadn’t occured to me. But it sounds great and I’m trying it on my next 2+2 tunic.
