Last day of the Belcarra Sew-Along! It’s a quick and easy day, because all we’re doing is hemming! I’m excited to see everyone’s finished blouses, and give away some sewing goodies. You can click the badge to the left to see all posts relating to the sew-along. See below for the list of everything we’ve covered so far!
Today: Hemming our Blouses
Alright, let’s get this blouse finished, shall we? I will be hemming my blouse by machine, so the hem will be visible. You could also catchstitch (or blind stitch) your hem, if you prefer a more invisible finish or if you’d like more control with a slippery or tricky fabric.
Before actually hemming the blouse, let’s finish the raw edge. I like to press the hem before finishing the raw edge, just so that my overlocked edge doesn’t show through the other side from pressing. You can go in whichever order you’d like, it’s really just a preference thing.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment with a link to your finished Belcarra blouse (this can be on your blog, facebook, instagram, Flickr, etc). As long as I can click through and see your blouse, you’re in! Giveaway closes on June 13th, so you will have a week to share your blouse. I will choose the winner at random, and announce who the winner is on Friday, June 20th!
Updated to add: Giveaway closes at midnight Pacific time!
Feel free to enter more than once, if you’ve made more than one version.
And of course, if you have any questions or feedback about the sew-along, I would love to hear from you in the comments. Happy sewing everyone!
