Cuff 'Em

My new coat's sleeves are now sewn up, along with the lining. Now how the heck do I attach the cuffs and keep everything neat? The instructions aren't very clear.

Hmmm... is it this way?

I seem to remember I had to do something weird with the lining the last time I made this coat. But I can't recall what I did, and I didn't write it down.

I need to find a way to get the finished cuff looking something like this...

And I need to do it without continuing to stick my left hand with pins.

Let's see. What if I put the lining over the entire sleeve with the cuff and stitch the end so that I can turn the lining into the cuff?

It works!  Huzzah!
