Springfield Sewalong Day 2: Sew back

SpringfieldSewalong-74

Welcome back to the Springfield Top sewalong! Today we’re going to be sewing the back. View A and View B have differently constructed backs, so we’ll deal with them separately.

Sew View A back

  1. Pin back hem band to back, right sides together. Sew, finish seam, and press seam down (in this case, French seams were used – here’s a tutorial on how to do them!).

2. Pin yoke to back right sides together, then sew, finish seam, and press seam down. For a bit of fun, I cut the yoke on the bias! You can experiment with contrast fabric, or playing with the pattern direction.

Sew View B back

  1. Pin center back to one side back, right sides together. Make sure the center piece is the right way up – the wider end should be at the top.
