This long sleeve can be combined in many ways and is a good alternative to a shirt. The V-neck is the only challenge of the long-sleeved shirt, but you can still dare to try this men's cut as a beginner.
Length at center back = 68 - 73 cm
In these instructions, Benedikt was sewn from a cotton jersey.
We recommend a jersey fabric.
- Outer fabric 1.50 m (140 cm wide)
- Outer fabric 1.70 m (140 cm 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 grain 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 chalk. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center except in the hem. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.
You need from fabric:
- 1x front part in break
- 1x back part in break
- 2 x opposite sleeves
- 2x bezel in front
- 1x bezel rear
- 2x panel sleeves
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.
Be sure to use a jersey needle and use a stretch stitch, i.e. if you are sewing with a home sewing machine you should use either a zigzag stitch or the tripartite elastic stitch and then all seam allowances again with a zigzag stitch or another appropriate stitch neaten so they don't fray. 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!
Sew the shoulder seams right sides together with a 1cm seam allowance and neaten them together. Iron the seam allowance towards the back. Next the hull is closed. To do this, place the side seams right sides together and close them with a 1.5cm seam allowance. Neat the seam allowances together and press them to the back.
Next, the sleeves can be prepared. To do this, the arm seams must be closed and the seam allowances trimmed together. Here, too, the seam allowance is then ironed to the back.
The prepared sleeve is inserted into the torso and stitched with 1cm. Pay attention to the notches marked in the pattern to distinguish between the right and left sleeve. The snap in the sleeve shows you that it is the front. The seam allowances are then neatened together.
A panel is sewn onto the sleeve hem to finish off. Close the sleeve band by folding them right sides together and sewing 1cm together. Iron the seam allowances apart. Now the panel can be ironed in half.
Stitch the panel to the sleeve with a 1cm seam allowance. Neaten the seam allowances together and then iron them into the sleeves.
In addition, topstitch the seam allowance just below the edge.
Now we come to the end of the aperture in the detail. The front panels are sewn together with the back panel and the seam allowances ironed apart. Then you can iron the panel in half.
Your finished neckline will look like this.
You put the prepared panel in the neck hole and stitch it with 1cm. Overcast the seam allowances and iron them down into the torso.
Here, too, the seam allowance is stitched close to the edge so that the seam allowance is extra fixed in the torso.
Neat the hem of the shirt all around and iron it according to the notches.
As a last step, the hem is stitched through at 1.5 cm and 1.8 cm.
