The Sommer patterns (women’s, youth, dolly, and baby!) are our sew-a-long patterns for this month! Don’t have your copies yet? Grab them over here! This month’s sew-a-long is sponsored by Sincerely Rylee Fabrics, Thread & Grain, and of course, M4M and P4P.
Today is Day 2 of our sew-a-long! We will be prepping the optional ruffles, and sewing up our bodice side seams.
- You can use woven for the bodice ruffle! Just be sure to do a narrow hem to prevent fraying
- There is no hem allowance for either ruffle; for knit ruffles, leave hem raw or do a rolled hem
- Need a little help with gathering? We have more tips here!
- Don’t gather your neckline ruffle yet!
Want to sew along with me? Check out today’s video!
If you have questions about today’s steps, 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!
