how to sew a loose fitting blouse: sleeves, cuffs and neckline


I should learn by now: if I plan writing a tutorial in the evening, it will get night and me to tired and then I write it the next day, so I should write them in the morning right on the day I planned… Well bare with me a little longer, I’ll try my best to grasp that concept;)

Anyhow here comes part2 of the loose fitting blouse, you can still find part1 here.

DSCF5423now I took the cuffs and sewed them into rings

DSCF5424and I cut a strip for the neckline, about 3cm wide and 60cm long

DSCF5425then I pinned that strip all around the neckline and sewed

DSCF5426ruffled the sleeve-hem and pinned it to the cuffs and sewed

DSCF5427now I folded the strip up and over and inside, so all open edges were inside, pinned and sewed
