Day 3 - Sewing the shoulder seams and neck facings.
You will need a copy of The Carnaby Cape pattern.
Pin the front and back right sides together at the shoulder seams.
Sew the left seam completely and the right seam to the notch only with a 1.5cm seam allowance.
Fold the button band in half right sides facing and sew along the curved edge. If you feel your fabric needs it you can fuse half of the button band beforehand.
Clip the corners and curve then turn right sides out. Press.
Line up the long raw edge of the button band with the right shoulder seam on the back of the cape. Line the curved edge up with the neckline and sew in place with a 1.5cm seam allowance.
Sew together the shorter side of the front and back neck facings right sides together.
Pin the facings in place on the neckline right sides together and sew in place.
Clip curves and corners then turn to the inside of the cape. Press in place.
Sew around the bottom edge of the facings with a top stitch to secure in place. I used a chalk line drawn onto the fabric to produce an even top stitch.
Tomorrow we will be sewing the bound waist tie openings.
