We made it to the half way mark of our Favorite Tee & Fav Tee sew along! That was fast! Today we’ll be sewing the side seams and hemming the sleeves.
When sewing the side seams, pin the front to the back of the shirt, right sides together. I like to pin the armpit first, then the end of the sleeve and the bottom and finally add a few pins or clips in between. Whether you are making the shirt or dress, long sleeve, 3/4 or short sleeves (like I am) the technique is the same.
Next we will be hemming the sleeves. You can do this using your sewing machine’s stretch stitch or zig zag stitch, a twin needle or your coverstitch like I am. If you use your twin needles be sure to check out our P4P University Twin Needles blog for great tips!
In the video below I show you how to sew the side seams and hem the sleeves using a coverstitch machine. When you finish these steps be sure to post a picture of your progress in the comments of the Day 4 photo (album is in the M4M & P4P Sew along group)
