I am making a Marfy pattern which I love, but....since they come with no directions, am a bit stuck on the cap sleeve hem. It is actually a cap sleeve that is in part self lined and partly a single edge like any sleeveless garment. Extending from about front center of armscye to shoulder seam is a self lined (almost like a yoke on a shirt) is the top half of the capped sleeve. extending from center, down under the arm and around the back of the sleeve is a single piece of material. I am unsured how to face/hem the sleeve. If it were a single layer continously I'd most likely do a rolled hem, but that second layer of fabric has me stuck, lol. Any help would be most appreciated.

I'd do them both as a narrow rolled hem; separate from each other, to allow for movement.

You might try using a narrow bias binding, same fabric, whatever looks nice, as a facing. What fabric are you using? Is the self-lined piece finished at the edge or open?

Thank you for the tip. I am not quite sure if I'm understanding you correctly. Picture a self faced yoke on a shirt. The shirt would have added sleeves so the portion of the armscye that contains the yoke facing and the remainder of the unfaced armscye would all be sewn as one into the sleeve. In my case, however, there is a cap sleeve, part of which is self faced like the yoke example. The remainder of the cap...back of dress and lower portion of front dress cap from approximately middle of front to under arm is just the single piece of material - no facing. The material is cut on bias and is a satin with a sort of sparkle on the right side. If I roll the hem on the self facing separately from the remainder of the cap sleeve I'm not sure how that would look since it would only be two separate hems from sort of center front armscye to shoulder. Sorry...wish I could explain better. Hope this makes sense.

Thank you again.

TY so much for the tip. The material and facing are the same so the bias binding may be just the answer; however, I was hoping to give it a more invisible edge. Not sure if that is possible, lol, so definitely will consider the bias binding.

TY again.
