Now that we've finished joining the right sleeve here it's time to sew the right front to the back. So I've begun pinning it as we talked about before. It doesn't matter what color yarn we are using because it's an invisible stitch. So, I'm going into the very bottom of the other side and the white makes a good contrast to see what we're doing. Then, I'm going in where I came out and up. There see there are two bars there. I'm going to go in where I came out and again collect two bars. With this needle being nice and dull you can put your finger back there without hurting yourself. When I pull it together, you can't see that white thread. Now then, I kind of loosen it a little bit so I can see where I came out. Going in where I came out. There's one bar, there's two bars. Again, where I came out. There's one, there's two. Now, I want to keep my ribbing on both sides so that it doesn't look lopsided, I'm going to take out my marker. Go in where I came out and then I'm going to pull this tight. You can see the white comes out, you can't see it. Then you keep sewing through the stripes. I'll loosen that a little bit to see where I was. Now I'm going to work the stripes into my seam. Just take two bumps at a time. You'll see there it comes even.
