My clothing construction class at College of DuPage is sewing a traditional button-down shirt with collar, long sleeves, and cuffs. Posts discussing the 20 construction steps will appear on this blog over the next few weeks. This is the design we are sewing:
Garment will be sewn with French seams. How to sew a French seam will only be explained during steps 1 & 2.
Lay Bodice Front and Bodice Side Front, wrong sides together, along princess seam. Stitch 3/8" from raw edges with a 2.5mm stitch length.
Press seam flat on one side.
Stitch Back princess seams using French seams as described above. Below is a view from the inside of the Back.
