This is a sewing tutorial to make a see-through cute front tie shrug that you can wear with all sorts of sleeveless tops, and dresses.

Chiffon is a slightly difficult material to cut and sew because of its thinness. Read some information on chiffon fabric and how to sew with thin sheer fabrics like thisĀ 

How to sew the front tie chiffon Shrug

Step 1 Cut out the pattern pieces

Step 2 Finish the hem of the sleeves.

You can turn the edge twice to the inside and stitch or use the rolled hemmer foot with a straight stitch.

Step 3

Keep the shoulders of the front bodice and the back bodice and stitch in place.

Do this for the two front pieces.

You can either sew a straight seam and then finish the edges with serging or zig-zag stitch or make a french seam. A french seam is very appropriate in that it looks very neat inside. For an almost sheer fabric like chiffon, this seam is the best.

Learn how to sew a french seam here. Basically, it is all about sewing the two pieces wrong sides together to the inside (instead of right sides together as you do for a normal seam) and then trim the seam allowance and then turn the two pieces and then stitch the edge again enclosing the seam line inside the stitching. If it seems confusing you will have to try it out after checking out the french seam tutorial.
