Set the pinned piece into the sewing machine.

Be sure to use the smallest needle you can find to patch this baffle. This will keep the new stitch from looking too prominent and help prevent the down from escaping through the new stitching holes.

Sew directly over the old baffle seam. You will be sewing very close to the edge of the fold, just catching the fabric.

If you’re working on a sleeve, make sure you only have one layer of the sleeve and that you’re not sewing the entire sleeve shut.

Go slowly, and guide the folded edge of the fabric directly over the old baffle seam. You may have to realign the folded edge of the fabric as you go—that's okay.
