Today is Day 3 of our Calliope SAL! We’ll be sewing up our optional pockets, and our side seams. If you use a good quality fabric with excellent drape, it will fit as intended. Also be sure to try it on “dressed up”, whatever that means to you! Styling a garment as if you were leaving the house can make it look and feel different.
- seam allowance is 1/2″ and is included on pattern pieces; be sure to take the full 1/2″, especially if you’re using a serger.
- you can go back and stabilize/add clear elastic to the shoulder seams if you’d like
- if you added/subtracted length to the front bodice, be sure to do so for the back bodice as well! If your side seams aren’t matching up when you go to sew today, this is likely why!

If you have questions about sewing up your side seams or attaching your pockets, 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!
