Welcome to Day 2 of our Mya sew-a-long! Today we’ll work on shoulder seams (quick and easy!!) and optional sleeve flutters. Need some help gathering? We have lots of great tips here!
Today’s step is a quick one, especially if you aren’t doing sleeve flutters! If you want flutters on your women’s pattern, you could use a similar shape and play around with size/length to fit your preference 🙂
- Seam allowance is 1/2″ unless otherwise indicated in the tutorial
- Place your gathers along the “curved” edge, not the straight opposite edge, for the flutters
- If you are mashing sizes, make sure to use the correct armscye! This will affect your shoulder seam

If you have questions about shoulder seams or your optional flutters, 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!
