Right Sides Together, fold band to measure 10 ¾" x 17". Stitch long seam with overlock stitch or serge seam. Mark quarters for center front and each side of each end of this tube. The seam marks the back.
  1. Mark quarters on two circles. Pin one circle to one end of the tube, right sides together, matching marks. Stitch. Press seam toward crown. Pin the other circle to the other end of the tube, right sides together. Stitch, leaving a 1 ½" opening to turn. Press seam toward crown.
  2. Turn right side out. Slipstitch the open edges together.
  3. Bring the slipstitched end to the inside to meet the other crown end. Match back seams and crown seams at back seams. From the outside, stitch in the ditch for about ¾ in to hold crowns together.
  4. Fold band to outside to form a cuff.
