welcome To The One Thimble Blog
…And here it is! First blog post on the new website!
A Big Big Big thank-you to those who tested this Short Sleeve Pattern hack for me and to Toni from
Bobbins & Co for writing the tute up for me.
There are two width options with this pattern hack.
HOW TO SEW YOUR SHORT SLEEVE
1. Finish the bottom hem of the short sleeves with your desired method. Pre-iron the hem by folding once at 3/4″ or 2cm.
2. Follow the Archie Instructions 55 to 62. When you sew the sleeve and side seam make sure to unfold the pre-ironed hem.
3. Once the side seams are closed, refold the hem along the crease. With the shirt inside out, sew inside the sleeve hem at 5/8″, to close it from the right side.
I hope you enjoy sewing some Archie Shirts with short sleeves!
When you sew one up be sure to show me – I can’t wait to see!
You can find the pattern for the Archie Shirt in Issue 6 of One Thimble which is available to purchase HERE
