Dartmouth Sewalong Day 3: Attaching SleevesMarch 27, 2017 / byCarrie McGowan / Categories : Feeds
Before attaching the sleeves, let’s baste together our shirt front to make it easier to manage. For view A, place the front piece with the gathering on top of the other front piece, lining up the side notches with right sides facing up. Do the same for view B, but use the left hand front (as worn) as the top.
Baste the two fronts together at the side seams within the seam allowance using a zig zag stitch.
Now, let’s attach our sleeves. Place the sleeve on top of the body, right sides together and pin at the shoulder notch. Gently shape the armscye to match the shape of the sleeve cap and pin, matching notches.
Sew the sleeve in slowly, making sure there are no tucks or folds.
Press the seam allowance towards the sleeve and repeat with the second side. Next time we’ll be back to finish up our Dartmouth Tops!
