This is my first post at Completed Projects. I thought would be nice to share.
I used my pillow as a model
, since I do not have a dress form.
I like the way it is. But, maybe you guys can give me more ideas for a new one
Thank you guys for being so inspiring and helpful
Sew the seams at the V neck
Sew part A to part B
Construct darts - front and back
Sew the lace at the front (Use stitch from AB connection as a guide
). Tuck in the ends to the inside of the blouse
Sew the ties at the same hight as the lace in the front - tuck ends also to the inside of the blouse
Sew the blouse at shoulders
Sew blouse on both sides
Creating the armhole with shaped facing. Put pieces D/E over A (and C) (maching shape) - right side of the fabric facing each other. Baste them, clip the curve, to avoid pucking. Sew, then fold D/E in. Press and sew around the edge.
Hem the botton of the blouse
Hem the back part on the blouse at the neck.
Use pins and basting stitches to create a good fitting
Press the folds and seams. This will help to keep things in place and gives you a good finish.
I hope the instructions and the drawings that I create are ok. Please feel free to ask questions!
Good luck and have fun!!!!
I hope I use all the proper terms
