We are wrapping up our Bryce Sew-a-long today! I hope you were able to make something you love this week. The crop I made is EXTREMELY far from my usual comfort zone, which is one of the things I like about doing sew-a-longs! I paired it with distressed black jeans and a black blazer, and I’m planning to bring it on a trip to NOLA with me later this month. Where are you taking your Bryce???
If you’re sewing a crop, you don’t have any new steps today! If you’re sewing a skirted version, we’ll add our waistbands and skirts today to finish up.
Bryce includes a half circle skirt, but you can always mash with another pattern to use a full circle skirt, or even a gathered skirt if that fits your preference. I’m going to try mine on without clear elastic in the waist seam, but I suspect I will want to go back and add it just for additional support.
- Make sure you are taking an accurate and consistent seam allowance; seam allowance is already included on all pattern pieces. For Bryce, seam allowance is 3/8″ unless otherwise indicated.
- Be sure to use a stretch stitch for all of your construction, with the exception of basting stitches.
