sew-a-long, round 2

We are almost done with our second round of the Flannel Shirt Sew-A-Long! This is our second-to-last post. I hope you are having success, and learning much!

Today we are sewing the shoulder seams, side seams, and the narrow hem. Those participating, please make comments at the original post, not in these round two reminder posts.

So far:

the introduction and supply list

the schedule and expectations for the sew-a-long

the first post – tracing the pattern

cutting the fabric, applying interfacing, and marking our shirt pieces

making up our lined pockets, our sleeve plackets, and sewing up our yokes

our front placket, collar, and collar stand

the Flickr group for posting your progress – photographs continue to trickle in.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions via email, on the blog, or via text. Through the end of this year I am available for one-on-one help. And please do post comments in the initial sew-a-long posts.

  1. This is so timely. I am making a flannel nightshirt for my husband from a vintage pattern, and I want the seams to be as good as possible. Information like this is invaluable for a novice sewist like me. Thanks especially for the excellent pictures–that’s what I’m lacking.
