Monday was my thrid week my sewing class where I’m making this dress. During the week I had already finished putting the darts in, joining the facings together at the sides and over-casting the lower edge of the facings by hand. (Here’s how to do it)
My (not very neat) version of an overcast stitch:
Attaching the facings using my Grasshopper
So when I got to class I carried on making the sleeves:
I sewed 5/8″ edge down
Trimed the excess:
Matched the front and back shoulder seams and machine sewed them together following the folded down edge as a guide. The facings sat nicely together so I then I hand sewed the facings together.
Here is the finished sleeve – voila!
How’s your sewing project going?
