This top is lightly shaped and has a small raglan sleeve and a small neckband. This version is only suitable for stretch fabric

Find your size:

The picture shows a size 38/10/6. Determine your size by measuring your chest and compare the measurement to the chart on your pattern and choose a size smaller when sewing in jersey

Fabric choice:

This model is made in Isoli, but a heavy jersey can also be used. However for this version you have to use a stretch fabric otherwise you can´t get it over your head

You will need:

NB! for this blouse you have used two kinds of fabrics

  • Fabric 1, width 140 cm.
    • EU 34-42/UK 6-14/US 2-10       0,7 mtr.
    • EU 44-48/UK 16-20/US 12-16   1,2 mtr.
  • Fabric 2, width 110/140 cm.
    • EU 34-48/UK 6-20/US 2-16       0,5 mtr.
  • Thread

Adjustments:

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

Cutting fabric:

The pattern pieces are labeled with capital letters (A, B, C etc.) These letters are referred to in the cutting diagram below; to enable you to see which pattern pieces you will need for the version you are making.

Sewing:

NB! All pattern parts are incl. 1 CM (3/8 INCH) Seam allowance, unless anything else is noted.

1.  Cut out all the pieces

 

Sew blouse:

2.  Overlock the front-side pieces to the CF pieces, right sides together

3.  Overlock the side seams right sides together

4.  Sew front and back sleeve together in the shoulder seam, right sides together.

5.  Fold the sleeves together and press.  

6.  Overlock the sleeves to the top, NB! Be aware of front and back sleeve.

7.    Sew sleeve band onto the armhole, it has to stop 1 cm above sleeve on wrong side of fabric. NB! The sleeve band is shorter than the sleeve hole.

8.  Make a top stitch on the body-sleeve edge to keep the sleeve band in place. Attach the band to the sleeve

9.  Sew the two short sides with right sides together.

10.  Pin the neckband in the neck opening. The neckband is shorter than the neck opening. Pull slightly in the fabric when sewing in the neckband.

11.  For the hemline, I have chosen to make a raw edge. Do this by cutting the edge straight all the way around with a roller cutter. You can also hem with a twin needle.
