Aubrey Sew-Along // Day 5

Friday, September 30, 2016

Today we are wrapping up the Aubrey sew-along. You will need to refer to the pattern instructions for the short sleeve version. These instructions will cover the 3/4 and long sleeve. All seam allowances are 1/2" unless noted otherwise. 

Open up the dress and lay it right side up. Place the sleeve right sides together aligning the center notch with the shoulder seam. Pin the remaining raw edges together and stitch. Finish the seam and press the sleeve away from the dress and the seam allowance toward the dress. Repeat for the other sleeve.

Place the front and back of the dress right sides together. Align the underarm seams and curved seam and secure with a pin. Then pin in between. As you can see here, I have already applied fusible hem tape to aid in hemming.

Stitch from end of the sleeve up to the underarm and down to the bottom hem. Finish the seam. Repeat for the other side.

Turn the dress right side out. Fold the end of the sleeve to the wrong side 1/2" and hem using your preferred method. Refer to our tips and tricks for hemming knits here. Repeat for the other sleeve.

Fold the bottom of the dress to the wrong side 3/4" and again, hem using your preferred method. Your Aubrey is complete!!

Be sure to add photos of your completed Aubrey Dress to our Facebook Group before Monday, October 3rd to be entered to win a prize. You can share photos on Facebook and Instagram with hashtag #aubreysewalong. We will post the winner next week!
