We’re going to finish sewing our Pony tank! We’ll conclude the sew along by sewing the side seams, attaching the armhole bands, and sewing the hem.
SEW SIDE SEAMS
With the right sides together, sew the side seams. Finish and press seams towards the back. Turn right side out.
SEW & PRESS ARMHOLE BANDS
With the right sides together, sew the armhole bands at the short end. Press seam open. Fold the armhole bands in half with wrong sides together and press.
SEW ARMHOLE BANDS
Line up the seam of the armhole band with the side seam. Continue to pin the rest of the armhole bands around the
armhole, matching the notches, while evenly stretching the armhole band slightly to fit the armhole. Do not stretch the
garment while attaching the bands. Stitch with a stretch stitch or overlock. Finish and press seams towards the bodice.
OPTIONAL HEM TAPE OR OVERLOCK
You may find it helpful to use 3/4” (2 cm) fusible knit stay tape to help stabilize your fabric while hemming. If so, apply
to the hem. You can also finish the hem edge with an overlock before hemming.
SEW THE HEM
Press the hem, wrong sides together, at 3/4” (2 cm). Topstitch using a regular straight stitch or stretch stitch.
Give your Pony Tank a final press and you are done!
