Sewing the yoke

Place one yoke and its corresponding back right sides together. Match up the notches. Pin in place and sew at 3/8’’ (1 cm).

Finish the seam and press the seam downwards.

Double topstitch along on the back piece to maintain the seam allowances in place. Repeat for the other side. All double topstitch, are sewn with a 3/16’’ (5 cm) gap. The first stitch line should be at 1/8’’ (3 mm) and the second one at 5/16’’ (8 mm).

Repeat for the other side.

Here you go, your I AM Sunshine jeans are finished. Congratulations! Go put it on and share a picture with us on Instagram with: @iam_patterns#iampatterns et #iamsunshine
