Welcome to Day 2 of the Blythe Sew-a-long! Today we’re going to knock out our shoulder seams, and sleeves if you are sewing up a sleeved version.
NOTE: If you’re sewing a sleeveless version, you will do the binding later this week.
Choose from short, half, long or flutter sleeves, OR check out the hacks blog post for a bishop sleeve hack! If you’re doing the flutter sleeve option, remember that you can leave the hem raw if you prefer. You can also do a lettuce hem, add trim, etc. – lots of options!
- 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!
