We've made it to the final day of the Moto Sweatshirt Sewalong! Today we're finishing up by securing the shoulder seams, collar, and waistbands inside the garment.

If you're just tuning in, here's the sewalong schedule:

Ready? Let's do this:

Secure the shoulder Seam Allowances

Pin the shoulder seams of the facings to the bodice shoulder seam allowances with wrong sides together.

Set your machine to a zig-zag stitch and sew the two seam allowances together. Ensure that you are sewing only the seam allowances (and not any part of the bodices) together.

Secure the neckline Seam Allowances

Pin the neckline seam allowances together with wrong sides together.

Sew the neckline seam allowances together with a zig-zag stitch. You may not be able to sew the entire length of this seam, and that's okay. We're just securing the seam allowances together so the collar stays folded in half.

Secure the Waistband Seam Allowances

Pin the waistband seam allowances together with wrong sides together. Sew the seam allowances together with a zig-zag stitch. Again, you may not be able to sew right into the corners of the waistband. Just sew as far as you can.

After sewing the waistband seam allowances should look like this:
