Sewing instructions No.9 Rønne

Version 1

Find your size:

The picture shows a size 38/10/6. Determine your size by measuring your chest and waist and compare the measurement to the size chart on your pattern. 

Choosing the fabric:

You can use any kind of woven fabric for this pattern. The final look of the garment will depend on the type of fabric you choose, though. To get the look as on the first picture use an organza. to get the look as on the last picture use a soft fabric like silk, rayon, or voile. This version are not suitable for jersey fabrics.

You need:

  •  Fabric 140 cm wide

o   Size 34-48 1.3 m

  • Fabric 110 cm wide

o   Size 34-48 1.8 m

  • Thread
  • 3 snaps
  • 30 cm interfacing

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. Find the fitting guide here.

Cutting layout:

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.

NB! Also cut interfacing with pattern pieces D & H. Cut piece E twice.
