The last step of the Sew-Along! I hope your Carme blouse is looking spectacular!
If you want to find the whole schedule, here it is: Carme Sew-Along schedule.
In a moment we’ll stitch the last details to complete the blouse but before that, I’d like to invite you all to send the pictures of your Carme blouse so we can all enjoy them together here on the blog.
How about that? Send me a picture (or more!) to my email paulineyalice@gmail.com or send me a link to your post if you have a blog. Remember that we also have a Flickr group.
As some of you have started not long ago the Sew-Along, the big Party with all your creations will be on Monday, April 7th! That mean you still have time to join or finish peacefully your blouse 😉
And now, buttons! In this tutorial, I’ll show you where to place the buttons and buttonholes. You’ll not see me actually stitch them because, 1st I didn’t have my buttons at the time, and 2nd my machine makes an automatic buttonhole in 1 step so… not really interesting.
I have seen versions of the Carme blouse with only 2 or 3 buttons on the button placket and that’s a great idea! You’ll probably never wear it buttoned-up so it’s a good way to spare buttons and go for a more relaxed look. I think I’ll do that for my next version…

Thank you so much for following this Sew-Along and I really hope you enjoyed the video tutorials. I know I had fun making them. I’m looking forward to see photos of your Carme!!!

I’ve seen lots of your Carme blouses popping on the internet this last week and it’s so amazing: they are all so pretty and different! Don’t hesitate to send me pictures or blog post address in the comments or directly to my email, I love to receive them…

We’re almost done with the Carme blouse! Today we’ll hem it. We’ll use a narrow hem (0,5 cm or 3/16″) but you don’t need a special foot. Let’s see how to do it:

On Wednesday, we’ll see the last part of this Sew-Along, the buttons and buttonholes placement. Have a great week!

The pin tucks… they might seem difficult to make and get those nice and parallel little folds might seem tricky but it’s not!
When I was designing the Carme blouse, I wanted to incorporate pin tucks because I find they add a romantic detail without beeing to “frilly”. So I tried different approach to pleat the yoke and the one we’re using is by far the easiest I could find (if you have any other method, please let us know).
We’ll make the pin tucks on a big enough piece of fabric and then cut the yoke out of it. So if you’re not happy with your pin tucks, you can make more before cutting the final yoke.
And don’t worry, folding the pin tucks is not as time consuming as you think… just need a little bit of patience.
