Day 5 of our Penelope sew-a-long is today! Woohoo!
Today we’re going to pin or clip the side seams, to include the sleeves, and then sew them up using a 1/2″ seam allowance. I like to clip the raw edge of the sleeve, the armpit seam, and the bottom hem raw edge, then place clips along the remainder of the side seams. This helps to ensure that you don’t run out of dress before the side seams are completely attached 🙂
- Match up armpits and raw edges
- Seam allowance is 1/2″
- Sew with right sides together
