A couple of notes earlier than you get chopping and stitching:
- Relying on the dimensions you’re making, you could possibly lower your garment alongside the weft or warp to get barely totally different appears to be like. For instance, the sample is drafted for a 44″ material, however we lower our brown pattern from a 47″ possibility. Quite than lower it right down to 60″ and lose all that waste, we merely made our tunic barely longer. Whenever you lengthen the tunic, it additionally lengthens your sleeve. This implies extra sleeve is gathered into the ‘armhole’ to create extra quantity!
- You may also add a belt or darts to create a extra flattering form.
- Take the material that was left from the neck gap and create a flower or some kind of applique to keep away from all waste!
- If you wish to bind the neck gap, you’ll be able to lower some material off the underside of the tunic to create bias tape.
1. Print out or draw the diagram immediately onto your material with a washable marking instrument.
2. Mark your neck gap, armhole, and the slit on either side.
3. Fold neckline utilizing a rolled hem. Instead technique, you’ll be able to serge or bias bind utilizing scraps of material.
