Annie, at 13, is at that in between age. She is in between the girl sizes and the junior sizes. Sometimes she prefers the styles found in the “Girls” section, but with her height, size 16 -18 often isn’t big enough. Especially in the arms. We just bought a winter coat last year and this year it is too small for her – mainly in the arms.
One end of the socks is finished, so that will be the side which is outside. The cut side will be sewn into the sleeve. The sock could simply have been tacked into the cuff, but I felt it should be machine sewed to ensure enough strength for pulling the coat on and off.
1. Turn the sleeve inside out. Pull the lining away from the coat to expose threads and snip. Remove all the threads. If the sleeve is tacked to the seam, snip those threads also.
