Flower blouse part 1: pattern and cutting


so I am finally getting to this blouse. I wont take pictures of every step of the sewing process because its pretty much the same as my blouse with the crazy print. But I changed the pattern a little bit, so I wanted to show you that. 🙂 And I will take pictures of how I do the slit. and anything else I do different this time. 😉

DSCF4210I wanted the sleeve a little wider to have more of a 70s/60s look, so I drew the sleeve on another paper.

DSCF4211drew a line in the middle of the length and then cut the lower part into 4 similar wide strips

DSCF4212looks like this

DSCF4213so I drew the top part on another paper, then did a line 3cm parallel to the end-line because I wanted the sleeve also to be longer and then did the sleeves strips splitting up towards the hem

DSCF4214DSCF4215I also wanted the collar bigger and longer for the 70s feeling

DSCF4217DSCF4218as you might notice, I got a little to few fabric

DSCF4247so I cut the second collar part and the later inside cuff parts of the corduroy planned for the dungarees to go with the blouse

DSCF4221this time I got the darts onto the fabric by cutting them from the paper and drawing them on and the pinning the pattern to the other side and draw the darts onto that other part as well

DSCF4244For a clean look I also cut fusible interlining for the collar and collar stand parts

DSCF4245DSCF4246and all of the cuff parts

DSCF4268and ironed them to the fabric

Tomorrow I finally can start sewing. 🙂
