Thanks for the hint about the sleeve width.

Love the top - and the idea to use the ties as trims is fantastic!

Lee Ann, yes I did save the tie interfacing for sleeve heads. I have a whole big bag of them. I am taking them to my sewing group on Fri. I have found that some are better suited for that use than others.

Joan, I think I like # 1 also for the sleeve trim. Have you used the tie interfacing, cut in 1 1/4inch bias strips, for sleeve heads? It works great for jackets etc. Thanks for this review and also the Simplicity blouse as I just bought that pattern!

Beautiful Jacket, Joan--thanks for this review. I really admire the way you've used bias strips from men's ties to bind the edge. I have a collection of men's ties & have used them for bias binding inside a jacket, but not this way. Really love it!

What a great way to add some individuality to a great basic pattern. Thanks for the idea. I definately adds to an already attractive top.

Your jacket is beautiful - I like option #1 of adding bias trim to the sleeve at this position.

What a great idea to use the tie as trim!

Joan, this is very pretty. I like the proportion resulting from putting the trim inside the sleeve edge (#1), or even turning it vertically (like a little epaulet?).
