We’re halfway through our Hudson Hoodie sewing! It never seems as tedious when we only have to tackle a little bit each day. Just joining? Grab your copies over here, and then head to our FB SAL group!
Our only job today is to attach our sleeves! SO quick! My biggest suggestion for attaching sleeves is to match the sleeve notch to the shoulder seam, and then clip the ends of your sleeve cap to the edges of your bodice. This helps to makes sure that you are easing the sleeve in properly.
Additionally, this is another reason it’s a good idea to use fabric with similar stretch quality!
- Seam allowance for attaching the sleeves is 1/2″
- If you’re using a sewing machine, you will need to use a stretch stitch!
- Ease (lightly stretch) your sleeve cap in to the armscye; be sure to pin before sewing
Want to sew along with me? Check out today’s video!
If you have questions about attaching your sleeves, 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!
