This slightly tailored, yet casual blouse can be wonderfully combined with many bottoms. The special detail is clearly the cuff, the seam of the ruffled cuff is covered by a fold. The collarless neckline only has a narrow trim and is held at the neck by the tie band.
Length at center back = 64 -70 cm
Ronja was sewn from silk in these instructions.
We recommend a flowing viscose, silk or cotton satin.
To sew this blouse you will need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, or alternatively the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to neaten the cut edges.
In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something needs to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern.
Have fun sewing! First, gather the back piece at the top: Sew with a large stitch and loosened upper thread tension at a distance of 0.6 and 0.8 cm, between the two outer clips, along the seam allowance. Leave the threads hanging a little at each end. Pull on the upper thread and the stretch tightens. The length must match the yoke. Distribute the curls evenly and tie the ends. Sew one yoke, right sides together, to the back piece and then the second one, right sides together, against it, so that the back piece has a yoke on both sides, with the seam allowances between the yokes. Iron the seam carefully so that the gathers are not flattened. Slightly topstitch the seam from the right. Sew the darts in the front and iron them up. Neaten the front facing. If you have a particularly fine fabric, glue the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric at the point where the lace ends. Pin the facing onto the front piece, right sides together. Pay particular attention here that the markings match. Sew the outline. Cut in the middle until just before the tip. Turn the facing to the left side of the front and iron the seam smooth. Stitch this edge close to the edge. Sew the front piece and the outside yoke together at the shoulder seam, right sides together. Now sew the inside yoke against it so that the seam allowances are between the two yokes (you can find the perfect tip on how to easily sew in a yoke here in our sewing instructions for the Qamar blouse)
Iron the seam and topstitch it from the right side.
Sew the shoulder seams together on all facing pieces, right sides together, and iron them apart. Iron a seam tape onto the neck hole of a set of facing pieces (here: line in yellow). Sew the two panels together, right sides together, along the narrower curve. Turn the panel over and iron the seam. Now pin the trim on the inside of the neck hole, right sides together, and sew it in place, paying particular attention to the clips. Iron the seam allowances into the panel. Also iron the seam allowance of the outer panel according to the pattern. Pin the trim so that the stitching line is covered and stitch it on with a narrow edge, also stitching off the front edge and the neck hole. Sew the sleeves into the armholes, right sides together, paying particular attention to the clipping positions. Finish the raw edges together and iron the seam allowance into the sleeve. Now sew the blouse together at the side and sleeve seams, right sides together. Finish and press the seam allowances into the front piece. Iron the sleeve hems to the left side and unfold them again. Sew the sleeve ruffles together along the short sides, right sides together. Iron the seam allowances apart and the ruffle in half, right side out. Gather the open side of the ruffle to fit the sleeve hem. Sew it to the sleeve hem, right sides together, with the seams meeting. Neaten the edges. Fold the hem back in, the ruffle sticks out at the bottom. Sew the hem in place. Then carefully iron the hem and ruffle again. Wrap the ribbons: Halve the ribbon lengthwise, right sides together, and sew the long sides together. Turn the ribbon by knotting the sewing threads onto a darning needle or narrow safety pin and passing them between the layers of fabric, carefully turning the ribbon inside out. Iron the band straight. Fold it in twice at both ends. Sew the upper ends to the markings on the panel and stitch the lower ends in place.
Now iron the hem of the blouse twice 1cm inwards and sew it in place. Also see the detailed instructions below:
Fold the hem 1cm to the left side and sew just next to this folded edge with a large stitch and loosened upper thread tension. It's best to take the front and back pieces separately. Now pull on the upper thread, like when gathering, the hem folds inwards. At the side seam where the curve goes up, you don't need to contract, in fact you should stretch a little. Push out any unnecessary frizz. Iron the hem 1cm inwards bit by bit until the hem lies flat.
Now you can pull out the auxiliary threads and sew the hem in place.
Alternatively, you can overcast the hem and sew along the overcast seam with a large stitch and loosened upper thread tension. The principle is as described above, except that it is only folded inwards 2cm once and sewn into place.
