A classic Carmen blouse reinterpreted. Sewing pattern women's blouse Amber impresses with its lush width and long sleeves. The neckline and sleeve hem are held together with an elastic band. Amber also looks great under a dirndl.
The blouse Amber with the beautiful Carmen neckline was sewn from a thin cotton fabric.
We recommend flowing fabrics such as silk, viscose, chiffon or georgette
- Sizes 34-40: outer fabric 1.75m (140cm wide)
- Elastic band 1.25m - 1.50m (1.5cm wide) depending on size
Cut the pattern pieces out of fabric and transfer the notches from the pattern. In addition to the description, the colorful brackets in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn.
- 1x front part in break
- 1x back in break
- 1x sleeve opposite
- 1x strip for the front neckline
- 1x short strip for the neckline in the break
- 1x long strip for the neckline in the break
- 2 elastic bands for cuffs
- 1 elastic band for the neckline
Iron the small strip for the front neckline in half lengthwise, wrong sides together. Pin it right sides together around the neckline so that all three open edges are on top of each other and sew it in place.
Snap the NZ in just before the seam and then fold the strip inwards exactly on the seam. iron it down. Sew the strip tightly along the seam once...
... and a second time close to the edge of the ironed edge. Now the neckline is wonderfully framed. Transfer the markings for the dart to the front piece.
Place the two side needles right sides together and pin this in place. The left needle shows where the dart should end. Sew the two darts with your sewing machine and, when you get close to the end, choose a very small straight stitch so you don't have to bartack the end of the seam.
Fold up the darts, iron them and pin them in place for later. Place the matching sleeve right sides together on the VT and close the arm seam (blue staples). Repeat on the other side.
Then place the RT on the sleeve, right sides together, and close the arm seam there as well (blue staples). Repeat this on the other side as well. Then place the VT right sides together on the RT and sew the lower arm and side seams in one go. Repeat on the other side.
Iron the bottom edge of the sleeve inwards by 1cm and then inward again by another 1.5cm.
Stitch this tunnel tightly and leave a small opening in the area of the seam. Using a safety pin, pull the elastic through this opening through the tunnel until it comes out again.
Be careful not to twist the elastic and sew the two ends together securely. Then pull the sewn end back into the tunnel and close the small opening. Repeat these steps on the other side.
Fold the hem of your blouse in twice by 1.5 cm and iron it well. Then sew the hem tightly.
Now you close the neck strap by placing the short piece right sides together on the long one and sewing it on both sides. Be careful not to twist the strip. The strip is now halved lengthwise and ironed left to left and then both open edges inwards by 1cm.
Pin the stripe with its right side to the left side of the blouse around the entire neckline so that your side seams meet the seams of the RT with the sleeves. Sew the strip exactly on the ironed 1cm line. Also make sure that the markings on the strip meet the two edges of the small front opening. If necessary, clip the NZ up to just before the seam.
Then fold the strip around the open edge to the right side of the blouse, creating a tunnel. The 1cm ironed edge now meets the seam just created.
Pin the strip firmly all around and sew it on tightly. As explained for the sleeve, you also leave a small opening here, through which you pull the rubber band, sew it up well at the ends, pull it into the tunnel and close the opening again. So you now have a clean result inside and out.
Congratulations, your Amber blouse is complete!
