Then I took off the cuffs & swapped them to the other sides (previously I had re-set the sleeves so the cuffs were now facing the wrong direction) and sewed them back on. Incorrectly I might add. Now I need to unpick them & sew them to the inside (instead of the outside like I did) so that I can fold them out to finish the cuff - left that to do yet.
I also added sleeve linings to the sleeves, and then did some research on trim: I have a lovely gold trim I got from Philly-based deep discount store, Jomar, which I am now in the process of sewing on the jacket. Here's what it looks like so far:

The event is not for another few weeks, but myself & two other ladies are planning & hosting the event this year, so it's been pretty busy getting everything ready!
