Anyone else feel like an outfit isn't complete without 28 pieces of flair? Cause I need all the upgrades! The Core Tee Pattern 's Viennese seams have just called to me to add all sorts of embellishment. Today I added piping in the front seams to match my Cadence tights!
Start by cutting out all the normal pieces for the Core Tee (mine are graded and lengthened for height). Then measure the length of the front Viennese seams.
Decide how wide you want your piping to be plus seam allowance and cut two strips. I went with about an inch. That gives me .5" after it's folded in half minus the 1/4" seam allowance. This will be just a tiny pop of color, but you could go wider for more drama (spoiler alert: all the way out to a flounce if you want!)
Sandwich the piping piece in between the side panel and front panel pieces of the core tee pattern and then complete per the tutorial.
I recommend doing one seam and then coming back after nap time is over to do the other side.
Done pinning. Now can finish sewing per tutorial.
My piping is subtle but I feel like it really gives this outfit something extra.
