Genavieve Sew-Along Day 8: Sides Seams and Hemming

Sideseams

Today, we will be finishing up our Genavieve! For the next step place your front and back bodice right sides together and sew with a 1/2" seam allowance along the side seams back stitching at each end. Finish your raw edges with either an overlock or mock overlock stitch.

Hemming

For the Hem options refer to your Hem options in the pattern instructions and choose your favorite or best option for your fabric. For the hem on this sample, I chose to finish the raw edge by serging it and folding it up a 1/2", sewing at about 3/8" from the edge. Afterwards give it a good press and wear!
