Day 3 is here! Today we start sewing. We are going to start by stitching the back pieces together at the center seam with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Once you have your back sewn, stitch the front pieces right sided together at the shoulder seam.
Tip: Add clear elastic to the shoulder seams to strengthen them and make sure the shoulders don’t stretch throughout the day.
The Flutter Wrap pattern features set in sleeves but this time they are sewn in the round. That means that we will sew the side seams prior to adding the sleeves. Don’t forget to leave the opening for the wait tie. That will be on the wearer’s right.
You can see my progress below. Once you sew the back, shoulder and side seams post a picture of the shirt or dress in the comments of DAY 3 photo of the Flutter Wrap album in the SAL group.
