Welcome to day 4 of the Classic Oxford Sew Along

Monday we prepared our patterns and cut out the pattern pieces. Tuesday we worked applying the interfacing to the pattern pieces and created the button placket. Wednesday we assembled the back by creating the box pleat and learned how to do the burrito roll method to assemble the shoulder seams. Today we are learning how to sew a sleeve placket!

Click on the video below to learn how to assemble the sleeve placket.

After you have your sleeve plackets assemble, attach your sleeves and sew the side seams as directed in the pattern.

Tomorrow will be our day to assemble the collar and collar stand and attach it to the shirt.
