Welcome to Day 2 of the Super G 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 sewing activewear, as well as information on supplies, sizing, and cutting into your fabric.
Today we are going to be constructing our side pockets, and sewing our center front seam. If you are sewing the no side seam version (view B), you’ll have a pretty easy day today, just sewing that center front seam!
Reverse Coverstitching Detail
I have done two seperate videos for today, depending on which view you plan to sew. Both include a video tutorial for how to do the reverse coverstitching. This detail isn’t a required part of assembly, but adds extra strength to your seams, and a cool Ready To Wear look.
In RTW, the look is achieved by using a special industrial flat lock machine, whcih sews the pieces together and adds the coverstitch detail at the same time. I don’t have access to that type of machine, so I’ve mimicked the look with my serger and coverstitch machine. Your sewing machine may also have some fun decorative stitches that you can use to topstitch- just be sure to use a walking foot so you don’t stretch out your seams.
Also, it’s worth noting that you can make one leg iwth side pockets and one without- that’s what I’ve done on one of my pairs, and I love it! In that case, check out both of my videos below.
Ready? Let’s get started!
