We’re already on Day 3 of our Stella sew-a-long; halfway through the week!
All options will sew up their sleeves and side seams today, unless of course you used the sleeveless hack from Day 1!
Pay special attention if you’re doing either the keyhole version or the off-shoulder version! For the keyhole, you’ll want to be sure to include all layers in the side seams. It doesn’t matter which side is the “top” side, as long as you catch all the layers in your seams.
For the off shoulder, be sure to read the tutorial to ensure you attach the sleeve correctly. Construction may feel a little strange since you’re not attaching to a shoulder seam like you typically would.
- seam allowance is 1/2″
- seam allowance is already included on the paper pattern pieces
- remember to stitch side seams and sleeves with right sides of fabric together
- Note: It does not matter which side you wear off shoulder since you cut mirror images.
