Sewing fixing, Adding a cuff band to the top of leg sleeves.

Not happy with the look of upper thigh elastic, I like the look of a separate band, like the sleeve on left, going to do so alterations and redo to the one on right.

It was faster for not doing a top band, but end look is not as nice, time to do a redo.

I just chopped of the top top the leg sleeves, not worried about total height of leg sleeves, will ladd enough with the new top band.

Made some quick bands, about 6.5 inches in height, will trim to hight I need after I attach to leg sleeves.

 

Bands attaaches and sewn in elastic done. Looks so much better then just folding over the top of leg sleeves and henning.

Even up close it does resemble a reverse cover stitch, does take a little longer to topstitch with the decorative stitch, but if you want the look and do not have a coversitch, you can still get the look of it.
