How to sew Sleeves – Carme Sew-Along
First, let’s sart with some beautiful Carme blouses made by two lovely french seamstresses: Annie Coton‘s beautiful dark blue blouse and Sandra’s romantic swiss dot Carme. Please be sure to check their wonderful versions, it will surely inspire you (as well as they amazing blogs, I sure know as I’ve spent sooo much time browsing through their archives and admiring their stylish handmade wardrobe).
Now, let’s talk about the Sew-Along! Today is a big day as we’re going to make the entire sleeve piece. But don’t worry, there are 4 steps but each one is quite easy on its own.
Let’s begin!
SLEEVE VENT

SLEEVE TAB

SLEEVE CUFF

SET THE SLEEVE

I hope the videos are being useful and that you’re not already fed up with the jingle and my broken English (I know I am after editing the videos and watching them so much). I wish a great day and I’ll see you on Friday for the collar part of the Sew-Along.

Greetings from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA! I just discovered your blog and I love reading your posts and watching your video tutorials. You have a beautiful accent and your English is wonderful. Thank you for sharing your talents with the world. You've inspired me to make a variation of the Carme Blouse to wear on Easter Sunday as I deliver a speech in church. Have a lovely day!

bonjour, je suis en train de coudre la blouse et pour l'instant, je m'en sors pas trop mal, mais l'histoire du ruban et de l'ouverture de la manche reste un mystère…. je n'arrive pas à coudre le ruban sur la fente, ça fait des plis, le ruban se tord dans tous les sens… Bref, ça a l'air si simple sur la video. et le résultat final sur ma manche est carrément moche. Comment faire tenir le ruban proprement le long de l'ouverture??? sur la video, vous n'utilisez mm pas d’épingle, … merci. nb: ce modèle est superbe!
