how to sew… a retro apron part3: side seams, straps and skirt parts to top part

Heyhey,

here are the next steps of my apron. You can find the first steps here: part1 and part2

I pinned the side seams of the top facing

dscf8238

and the top parts

dscf8239

same with the side seams of the skirt parts

because I already was pinning so well, I decided I would also pin the straps

and then I finally started sewing and cut the seam allowance short at the curve

then turned the right side out and ironed

the side seams of top parts and facing I sewed as well and serged

same with the skirt parts

now I took the back of the skirt, which will be open, so I treated it like a hem and folded half of the seam allowance to the wrong side

and folded it over again

and sewed

next, I pinned the skirt parts to the top part according to the pattern markings

at the curve, the pinning is a little tricky with 1.5cm seam allowance, which is used by vogue patterns. For me, it is the easiest to pin it at the line, where my seam will later be

and sew very slowly to fit the fabrics onto each other without any folds

mission accomplished 😉

now I cut the seam allowance shorter at the curve

and serged
