The sleeves are made with four layers, salmon cotton lining, middle layer of netting to hold the sleeve shape, green cotton fashion fabric, and the van dyke points made with the cotton velvet, salmon cotton lining and dark brown silk trim.
There's a lot of sleeve bulk to handle, particularly when gathered, but slow and steady and tacking wins the race lol!
Here are the images of how I put them together.
|Get gathers of sleeve correct for armhole|
|Then attach van dyke points|
|Outside view of sleeve with van dyke points attached|
|Sleeve needed an extra van dyke point|
|Extra point added after sleeve stitched in, a tad irritating to do, but I wasn't going to unpick that sleeve!|
