Sewing instructions No.00 DANMARK

Version 3

Find your size:

on the picture you see a size 40/12/8. Compare your measurement to the size chart on your pattern sheet. The blouse is styled with the trousers from No. 7 Vanløse

Fabric:

It is important to choose a fabric that has a nice soft drape. For this blouse I have chosen a viscose velvet. Viscose will generally work well for drapey styles. The same goes for silks, microfibers, rayon and cupro.

You will need:

  • Fabric 110 cm wide
    • Size 34-48/UK 6-20/US 2-16 1.7 mtr.
  • Fabric 140 cm wide
    • Size 34-48/UK 6-20/US 2-16 1.6 mtr.
  • Thread
  • 30 cm interfacing (that works with your fabric)

Fitting:

I recommend that you always make a muslin before you cut the fashion fabric, to make sure your finished garment will fit you perfectly. 

Cutting:

Each pattern piece is marked with a capital letter. On the cutting layout plan, you’ll find the same capital letters so that you can easily see which pattern pieces to use for the
version you’ve chosen.
