Lots of great stuff, right? So let’s get those patterns sewn and enter! In the meantime, let’s sew day four!

Section c- sleeves- If you are doing regular sleeves, follow the directions according to the pattern. If you are doing the sleeveless version, please follow these steps
– Sew the side seams with the ties in place as directed in section b. Make sure to finish your seam!

–  Take a tape measure and measure the distance around the arm opening, making sure to not stretch the knit as you go. Write down your measurement. Take that number and multiply it by .85, THEN add 1. This is the measurement for your arm bindings and you will need to cut 2 of those from your 1 ½” arm binding piece.

– Fold your arm binding pieces in half so the long sides meet, and press. Unfold, then fold the opposite direction so the short ends meet. Sew a seam on the short end, using a ½” seam allowance, and press the seam open. You will have a loop.

– Fold the loop so that the long sides meet. Using the seam as a starting point, divide the loop into 4 sections and use a pin to mark your place. Divide the arm opening into 4 sections as well, using the side seam as a starting point.

– Match up the side seams and the seam on your arm binding loop, as well as the pins for each section. The binding piece will be smaller, but you will stretch that as you sew.

After you’ve pinned, sew or serge the seam with a ½” seam allowance. If you are using a regular machine, make sure to trim the seam allowance down to ¼” and finish the seam if desired. turn right sides out and press well. Topstitch if desired.

    I’m confused on how to sew on the sleeveless arm binding ring. The picture shows everything right side out but it doesn’t saw to line up raw edges or to fold over or turn wrongside out. I’ve always done mine like a bias tape so idk what to do here. Is it just the same process as the neck hole binding?

      It shows right sides together, but the binding is folded in half so all of the binding has the right side of the fabric showing.. You do match the raw sides, then sew. You are sewing from the right side of the garment, but the arm binding is “wrong side.” It’s sort of like the neck binding, but in the round. It doesn’t encase the whole armhole like you would with a bias-style finish. I hope that makes sense! After you sew the bands on, you do flip seams under and press, so it looks like the photo. You can topstitch the seam, but it’s not necessary.
