new swingset placket tutorial

A big thanks to April Henry, of April 1930’s, for contributing a new tutorial to our tutorial blog.

Every so often, we get a question on how to construct the back placket on the Swingset Tunic. This element of the garment uses a unique and unusual construction technique that will be unfamiliar to almost anyone sewing from the pattern for the first time.

April’s tutorial walks you through these steps of the process very clearly with excellent, detailed photos. The tutorial will be a great resource for anyone sewing the tunic for the first time.

And check out April’s finished top. Lovely.

  1. Oh goodness, now I'm blushing.

    I must say, this top is quickly becoming a fast favorite. The fit is absolutely *perfect* for my 5-year-old. I look forward to making many more!

  2. I am bookmarking this so I can make it in a couple of years for my little girl!

    it's so simple and yet girlie!

  3. Congatulations to both of you. It looks as easy as it can get and I can not wait to try it for my little girl…
