so here are the next steps for the retro print blouse. If you missed the first steps you can find part1 here.
I pinned the wider strip folded in the middle to the right side of the fabric
and sewed, then sewed parallel to the the edge to create a tunnel from the marking (where the ruffles start) around to the other marking
then I put the small strips in the tunnel the end of the strip at the end of the tunnel, then I sewed the end in place with a few stitches
the other end of the strips get out of the holes I made for them
next I sewed the rest of the tunnel
now I sewed the back part to the shoulder part
first sewing the back part on the seam allowance with wide stitching to ruffle it to be the right size
now I pinned the front part to the front part and sewed and serged, then I also closed the side seams
next I pinned the sleeves into the armholes
and the collar to the neck hole, right side on right side, just the one layer
I hope this was helpful for you, questions, ideas and wishes are most welcome!
the last steps of the blouse will be up next thursday.
keep sewing and smiling
