Hem the Carme blouse – Carme Sew-Along

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!

How to Make the Pin Tucks – Carme Sew-Along
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.
