Adding Thumbholes On Your Seronera Jacket

During The Seronera Bomber Jacket testing I was asked to give an option to add thumbholes to the sleeve’s cuffs. I was so excited to see that request. Think about it, its just a perfect idea given our coming weather. So of course I agreed.

So the question was how to do that without changing anything I already have. Of course the answer was easy. Just make a hole in the seam of the cuff and have that hole in line with the thumb ;). Easy right!

Let’s get started.

Adding Thumbholes On Your Seronera Jacket


Let’s follow these steps!

Step 1: Take your cuff piece and fold it in half lengthwise with RS together. Find the centre of the long raw edge.  Mark it with a pin.

Step 2: Add 1 – 1 1/2″ (2.54 – 3.81 cm) on either side of this centre mark (You will have 3 marks in total). Mark them with pins.

Step 3: Remove the centre pin and sew between the markings with a 3/8″ (1 cm) seam allowance. Make sure you backstitch at each end to secure. Press the seams open.

Step 4: Now fold the cuff in half WS together. One end will look like a normal cuff and the other will have a open v shaped raw edges. This will be the thumb opening. We will need to secure it.

Step 5:To secure the thumb opening, fold in ⅜” (1 cm) towards the WS and pin.  Topstitch. Don’t forget to turn when you reach the end of the opening and coming back down on the other side. (If you leave the needle in when turning your fabric, you can get a nice sharp corner!)
