SEWALONG SEWING TUTORIALS

Marlo Sewalong Day 4

January 28, 2021

Welcome back to day 4 – the last day of the Marlo Sewalong.

Grab your buttonhole guide as well as your buttons. You will also need some kind of marking tool like a fabric pen or chalk pencil.

Using the buttonhole guide, mark the buttonholes on the right front (when wearing). I find that the easiest way to do this is to fold your guide in half and place it along the neckband.

Next sew buttonholes on the right front. I recommend practicing on scrap fabric first. Open up your buttonholes.

Mark coordinating buttons on left front (when wearing). Note that the buttons are placed towards the top of the buttonhole openings (not in the middle). I like to use the buttonhole openings to mark the button placement but you can also use the guide.

Sew buttons on to the left front.

Now to finish up the wristbands. With wrong sides together, fold Wristband in half, lengthwise. Press.

Open Wristband back up.

With right sides, together, pin short ends of Wristband together.

Serge or sew in a 3/8″ seam allowance with a stretch stitch. Press seam allowances open or to one side.

With wrong sides together, fold Wristband in half along original press line. Press again.

Pin folded Wristband to lower edge of sleeve, matching seam on Wristband to underarm seam and stretching band to fit. Pin in place.

Serge or sew in a 3/8″ seam allowance with a stretch stitch. Press wristband down and seam allowances up toward sleeve.

And that is it! Give your Marlo Sweater a final press, clip any loose thread, and wear it proudly.
