Dartmouth Sewalong Day 4: Side Seams and HemsMarch 31, 2017 / byCarrie McGowan / Categories : Feeds
Today is the last day of the Dartmouth Top sewalong, and we’re almost done! We’ll start by sewing the side seams.
Pin the shirt together at the side seams, right sides together with the fronts on top to minimize any chance of missing a layer. Match the underarms and the notches.
Sew the side seam and sleeve seam in one go, starting at the hip, pivoting at the underarm, and ending at the end of the sleeve.
Press the seam allowance towards the back of the shirt and repeat with the second side.
The last step is to hem the shirt and the sleeves! Start by basting the two fronts together at the bottom edge. This is optional but makes hemming SO much easier, so I highly recommend it!
Next, press the bottom hem up by 1” and topstitch.
Repeat with both sleeves, hemming by 1”.
Give all the hems a good press and you’re done! We can’t wait to see what you’ve made. Share yours on social media using #DartmouthTop!
