Almost to the end of our Vivienne & Dylan sew-a-long! Today is Day 5. Just a quick note – you’ll notice that the steps vary depending on which pattern you’re sewing up, since construction is slightly different.
Working on Vivienne? Today’s step is attaching both neck and arm binding!
Working on Dylan? Today calls for a quick neckband!
Note – If you’re following a specific hack, your steps may vary!
- Make sure you are taking an accurate and consistent seam allowance!
- Be sure to quarter your neck band/opening evenly to help prevent puckering
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!

From Boho’s owner, Emily: “I am always on the hunt for high quality fabrics that aren’t commonly seen on the market. One aspect to our shop that I am extremely proud of, is that our staff is now 100% made up of women. Myself, and the other two women who work for me at our San Diego location, have all attended fashion design school and are completely in love with textiles, sewing and fashion design!”
