It's time to Hem!

Low Back Olive Sewalong - Part 5 - Attaching the Optional Waist Ties

Alright, so we have gotten out bodice all put together. We have attached it to our pants (or shorts!) and can see the end of the tunnel for this project! We are nearly there- YAY!

Today, we are going to work on attaching our tie casing and threading our waist tie through it! Yet another step closer to achieving this wardrobe staple!

Oh my goodness, we are so close to having a garment put together enough to try on and run around the house in (or at least the sewing space!).

For the Bra Friendly back, we are going to start sewing up our pants/ shorts on page 36 of our instruction booklet. Putting pants together is surprisingly easy as there are so few seams! And with the extra ease of this particular jumpsuit, fitting should be a breeze as well. Let's get started!

24) Finish your Back leg crotch seams in your preferred method. I used my serger to finish off...

Alright, so yesterday we prepped our bodice and some other bits of our jumpsuit with interfacing and we sewed up all of our darts- woot! For today, we are going to focus on getting our bodice prepped and adding our straps!
