MARCEL SEW ALONG
Everything you need to know about the Marcel and Mini Marcel patterns is in this post: size charts, pattern illustrations, and more.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration to get started on your Marcel we have fabric recommendations and RTW looks to check out.
Fitting and custom adjustments are an important part of apparel sewing, we go over the most common adjustments we have seen for the Marcel.
Before we start sewing we need to gather our supplies and cut out our pattern pieces.
Let’s get sewing! We’re going to add some stay stitching and sew the straps.
It’s time to sew the Marcel bodice. This is the only part of the pattern that will require fitting.
If you are sewing the Marcel Tank Top you can skip this step. We are sewing the side panel tiers for the Marcel Dress.
Now it’s time to sew the side panels to the center front and center back to make a tube. We will also be gathering the center front and back panels.
Now your Marcel is coming together! Here we will be sewing the bodice to your dress or tank top.
