Welcome to Day 2 of the Inspire Tights SewAlong!
If you don’t have your pattern yet, you can get it here.
Need to catch up?
Check out Day 1 HERE on the blog. It’s got lots of tips for selecting your size, adjusting your fit, and cutting your fabric!
As a reminder, here’s our schedule:
Here’s a sneak peek at the schedule:
Day 2: Sewing the Inserts (insert options only) (YOU ARE HERE)
Day 3: Gusset
Day 4: Attaching the Front/Back, Waistband and hem
Day 5: Finishing up
Today is only for those of you that are adding inserts to your Inspire Tights. If you are NOT adding inserts, and are just sewing the simple version, you can skip ahead to tomorrow or take a day to make a matching tank (my favorite is the Xpress tank– SewAlong for that is HERE)
Ready? Let’s Get Started!
Extra Tip: Reverse Coverstitch
I mentioned using a reverse coverstitch to sew down my seam allowances on the inserts, and you can find that HERE, as part of my Super G Sew-Along. I really like this method, as it reduces chafing and gives a nice ready to wear look. If you don’t have a coverstitch machine, you can still do a topstitch with a twin needle or a decorative sewing machine stitch.
That’s it! I’ll see you back here on Monday (taking Sunday off to share a guest post on the Greenstyle blog) to continue our SewAlong!
