Aubrey Sew-Along // Day 2

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

We are thrilled you are joining us for the sew along! Let's get started! 

Note: All seam allowances are 1/2" unless noted otherwise. Also, if you are new to sewing with knits, it may be helpful to review our Tips for Sewing with Knits

Lay your back center panel right side up on a flat surface. Place one side panel right sides together lining up the raw edges of the curves and the notches. Pin at the top, bottom, and notch. Continue pinning in between without stretching either piece.

Stitch along the curve with a 1/2" seam allowance. Finish the seam if desired and press the seam allowance toward the side panel. Repeat for the other side. Set the back pieces aside.

Lay the center front pattern piece right side up on a flat surface. Place the pocket front, the one with the markings, right sides together aligning notches and side edges. Stitch between the marks along the pocket curve  with a 1/2" seam allowance. Backstitch at each end.

Clip the seam allowance at each of the stitching right up to but not through the stitches. The closer you clip the flatter your pieces will lay in the next step.

Turn the panel right side out with the center front facing up. Press the pocket opening and seam allowances flat. You should have nice crisp corners at each end of the pocket. Topstitch along the pocket opening seam you just created. We will complete the pocket construction tomorrow!
