Nähanleitung Dirndl-T-shirt Jackie

Sewing instructions Dirndl T-shirt Jackie

The Jackie summer shirt not only impresses lovers of large necklines, it is also a wonderfully casual alternative to a dirndl or traditional trousers. The lush puff sleeves are a nice contrast to the otherwise narrow silhouette.

Center back length = 55 - 60 cm

In these instructions, Jackie was sewn from a soft jersey viscose fabric.

→ To the pattern “Jackie”

Required material:

We recommend jersey with elastane.

Sizes 34-42 : Outer fabric 0.90m (140cm wide)

44-50 : Outer fabric 1.00m (140cm wide)


Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric . Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the center so that you can lay the front and back pieces in the fold. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the thread up arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or with chalk and mark the ends of the darts, note that bust darts are to be processed from larger sizes. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends , pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or a pin .

You need from fabric:

  • 1x front part in break
  • 1x back part in break
  • 2x wristband
  • 2x sleeves in opposite directions
  • 1x ribbon cutout

Sewing instructions:

To sew this shirt you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.

In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
Happy sewing!

Sizes 42-50 have a bust dart, sew it down according to the pattern. A simple, straight dart is closed and sewn on the wrong side of the fabric, snap by snap, tapering from the widest point to the tip (so that the dart does not bag) on ​​the wrong side of the fabric, following the exact transfer of the pattern and carefully observing the marking. Draw a line with the tailor's chalk beforehand so that you don't sew too much or too little and finish the side seam nicely straight.
So that you don't have to bartack at the top, you can sew the last centimeter with a very small stitch. You iron the dart content upwards.

Begin by closing the side seam of the front and back pieces right sides together and overcasting them together. Pay attention to the seam allowances in the pattern and then iron them backwards.

Sew the shoulder seams right sides together and neaten the seam allowances. Iron them backwards as well.

Clean the hem of your new shirt all around, iron it according to the pattern and...

...stitches the hem.

Now prepare the sleeves by adding a ruffled seam to the sections according to the pattern.

Now sew the inner arm seam right sides together and neaten the seam allowances together.

Prepare the ruffled stretches in the sleeves.

Now work on the cuff by ironing the fold left on the left. Unfold the fold again and lay the cuff right sides together. Close it in a round and press open the seam allowances.

Lay out the ironed fold, wrong sides together.

Now you can attach the cuff to the sleeve hem right sides together. Overcast the seam allowances and iron them up.

Sew the prepared sleeves right sides together into the armhole of the shirt. Neaten the seam allowances here as well.

Close the neckline tape right sides together to form a curve and iron open the seam allowances.

Here you can see the finished ribbon.

Then place the ribbon right sides together on the neckline and stitch it in place.

Finally, fold it inwards and topstitch the neckline all around, the width of your stitching foot.
