Tadah Vinties Sew Along Day 4

Hi All,

Today we will be completing steps 20-24, attaching the back yoke. Today should be the last day, BUT I was led astray yesterday and didn't get to do as many steps as I should have 

So we will have one extra day tomorrow to finish the snap panels and leg elastic

Lets start with Step 20! It seems I missed sewing on the back yoke when we were doing the front, so lets do that now... again line up your back body with the dots you made on day one on the back yoke, gather the body to fit and sew a 1/2" seam 

Then make a mark at 5/8" on both sides of your back yoke

Pin your straps at that mark

Then pin your second back yoke, the one with the folded up seam, to the top as well. Our straps should be sandwiched between the two yokes

Then sew a 1/2" seam

Then pin those straps out of the way... trust me on this!

Then we're going to sew down the short sides. Your stitching on both sides must end where the arm starts (where my finger is pointing). I find the best way to do this is to start your stitching at this point, then flip your overalls and start at that point again for the other side.

So start your stitches here.

Clip your corners, turn out and press

And your back should look like this

You'll need to top stitch down the back yoke, much the same as you did for the front. I've made a little video on how to use the sewline glue 

 See you tomorrow to finish off the legs and snap panels!
