Tea & Crumpet Sew-Along

tea & crumpet sew-along: the collar and lining

Tea & Crumpet Sew-Along

Hello and welcome to day five of our sew-along – our penultimate post! Today we will be installing collar and lining. For this entry, you will need:

1. Your constructed dress shell and lining
2. Your collar pieces

In our last entry we finished our back closure. We should have a constructed shell and lining, and our collar pieces. Our construction order will depend on the collar we’ve used – the asymmetrical or tie collar options. For the assymetrical collar, we put the collar in and then the lining; for the tie-collar, we install the lining first.

Ready? We’re in the home stretch! You can do it!

You Can Do It!

Hello and welcome to day four of our sew-along! Today we will be installing our back closure. For this entry, you will need:

1. Your constructed bodice shell
2. Your closure hardware (buttons or zipper)
3. An invisible zipper foot (for a zipper closure)

In our last entry we finished our bodice, minus the collars. Today we install our back closure, which can either take a few minutes (for a zipper) – or a lot longer, if you’ve opted for buttons.

Ready? LET’S DO THIS!

Celebrate!
