I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Mine isn’t going as planned, just because I managed to get a cold in the middle of summer and my head feels like it wants to explode. But lets talk about nicer things: Here are the next steps for my fun yellow blouse. You can re-read the steps before here: pattern and cutting, sewing1
last week I finished my back-part and added the button-loops to the front, so this time I kept working on the front. Now I pinned the facing to the front parts, right sides facing each other
and sewed and serged until 5-10 cm before the shoulder seams
turned the facing on the inside and placed the buttons in the loops to see what the final look will be like and decided I like it that way
now I pinned the underlap-parts together
and sewed 2 long side and one short side together
cut the seam allowance at the corners
and turned the right side out and ironed. if you look closely you notice my flower is upside down, I should have checked for that before sewing. I decided that the underlap will not be seen, so I just left it that way.
next I placed it under the left front part, so half of it will be shown
then folded the facing open and pinned through seam allowance and facing the underlap in place
then pinned the opening together the way it should look at the finished item
now I pinned the front waist-part to the top front part
sewed and serged and ironed the seam allowance into the waistpart
looks like this
now I placed my bottom part on the waist part, sewn with wide stitches which I ruffled to the right size, like I did last week with the back.
sewed and serged and ironed the seam allowance into the waist-part again
my finished front part
now I pinned the front and back parts at the shoulder seams together
sewed and serged
then pinned the rest of the facing to front and back parts
sewed and serged
and ironed the facing folded inside.
