Can you believe we’ve already made it to Day 5? I’m so glad you joined us this week for our sew-a-long, and I hope you love your new Sierra. 🙂 If you were sewing one up for someone else, I hope you get a chance to do a little selfish sewing soon, too!
These last few steps are pretty simple! You’ll attach the skirt and/or romper bottoms to the waistband. You will need to stretch the waistband just a bit to fit. Remember that the bottoms were not designed to be hemmed, so if you wish to hem them, you will want to add a 1/2″ hem allowance before you cut your fabric pieces out. Of course, you CAN hem without adding the seam allowance; just note that your bottoms will finish 1/2″ shorter than intended.
If you still have questions about finishing up your flutter sleeve bodice, 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 the daily posts to enter our giveaways. We can’t wait to see what you create this week! Giveaway winners will be announced on Saturday, September 22. Make sure you check back in frequently to find out what our next sew-a-long will be. 🙂 Any favorites you’re hoping for? Let us know in the FB group!
