How to Sew Shoulder Seams
Hi, all,

I am making a child's sweater and I was wondering if there was a video on sewing bound-off shoulder seams. I know how to sew side seams of a garment and how to weave seams together, but I sort of forget how to sew shoulder seams.

Thanks.

HI!

Do you mean "seam bound-off shoulder seams"

or

do you mean "sew on the sewing machine..."

If you mean "seam" the shoulder seams...use the mattress stitch to seam the bound-off shoulder seams together. Butt them together on a pillow on your lap, or on a tabletop...put a couple little pins to hold them butted together...and do the mattress seam.

Yes, there is a video clip here at KH for mattress seaming.
Go to VIEW VIDEOS>TIPS>scroll down to FINISHING>scroll down to Mattress Stitch.
