Draped Blouse - Paco Peralta
Shoulder Seams and Facing Finish
Once the front and back are prepped, they can be joined at shoulders. To do so, the facings are opened outward and one continuous seam from the edge of the facing to the edge of the armscye is sewn, pivoting at the corner. In the photo below, the facings are on the right and the shoulder seam extends down toward my thumb.
Once the seam is sewn, the shoulder seam is pressed toward the back and the facings are folded once again to the inside.
Lastly, the facings are tacked on the inside by hand to the shoulder seam.
Next (and last) up: armhole bindings and side seams.
Parting Shot: Happy. I was substitute teaching today, and Kiwi was very happy to see me when I came home, rubbing and purring everywhere.
