Black on black is a little bit of a bitch to seam rip and I'm pretty sure I lost five years of good sight. I ended up top stitching the sleeve hem twice (in two neat & parallel rows) because I missed picking up a tiny sliver of the hem underneath and absolutely could not bring myself to seam rip anymore!
But they are done and they are cute:

I really like sewing with this sateen. It's pretty lush and, I don't know, kind just does what it's supposed too. I've gotta' go get some more for the lining fabric....
