Welcome to Day 2 of our Calliope Sew-a-long! Today we’re going to knock out our shoulder seams, and attaching our sleeves.
Sleeves include a one-piece lantern sleeve, slim long sleeve, or a relaxed fit long sleeve. In today’s video, I’m sewing up the slim long sleeve. Don’t love cuffs? No problem at all – you can simple add length to the sleeve pieces, and hem instead. The beauty of sewing for yourself!
- seam allowance is 1/2″ and is included on pattern pieces
- be sure to take a consistent seam allowance throughout your garment
- if you added/subtracted length to the front bodice, be sure to do so for the back bodice as well!

If you have questions about measuring yourself, printing, putting your pattern together, or cutting your fabric, you are always welcome to post in our SAL group so we can help you! Be sure to check in each day during the SAL, and look for daily posts to enter our giveaways. We can’t wait to see what you create this week!
