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.
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
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!
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
