Dartmouth Sewalong Day 3: Attaching Sleeves

March 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!

Help Me Help You

For me, old techie that I am, the disconnect between needlepoint and information has always been a baffling one. In the tech world of my previous working life there was a saying: Information wants to be free. Now you can put many different interpretations on that, but one thing is true: information wants to be […]
