Attachment Seam?!

(4 Posts)

Agh... I need help! I am trying to make a shirt for DS using a burda pattern and it's on about attachment seams? I have no idea quite what that means, can anyone explain?

For context, I'm attaching the yoke to the front pieces and it wants me to "top stitch the yoke close to all attachment seams" . Thre are edges which are raw and edges which are already sewn/seam allowance is folded over - does it just mean the latter? I have basted ALL edges.

I hope this makes sense to someone... TIA!

I think what it means is where you have sewn the pieces together, you turn to the right side and top stitch as close the seam as possible. This holds the seam and the raw edges underneath in place and in the right direction. I think the attachment seam is the initial seam to hold the two pieces of fabric together. Not sure that makes sense

Brave you for a) using a Burda pattern and b) making anything but pj bottoms, waitcoats and dressing gowns for anyone male. grin.
