The pattern of the Alice wrap jacket is a rather playful model with the attached ruffles on the hem and the wide sleeves. The jacket can be combined in many ways with both your summer and your winter wardrobe.
Length at center back = 54 - 58 cm
Alice was sewn from a knit fabric in this pattern.
We recommend a soft jersey or knit.
- Outer fabric 1.50 m (140 cm wide)
- Outer fabric 1.60 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 back piece on 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. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.
You need from fabric:
- 1x back part in break
- 2x front part in opposite directions
- 2x sleeves in opposite directions
- 4x tape
- 4x Ruffle Hem
To sew this jacket you will 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!
Begin your sewing work by processing the dart in the front part.
A simple, straight dart is closed on the wrong side of the fabric, marking after marking, from the tip to the widest point towards the tip
Place the front pieces right sides together on the back piece and sew the shoulder seams. Neat the seam allowances together and press them to the back.
Fold the ribbons in twice and stitch them right through the edge.
Secure one of the ribbons in the side seam on the left side of the body...
... and sew the side seams right sides together. Neat the seam allowances together and press them to the back.
Sew the inner arm seam of the sleeves right sides together and neaten the seam allowances. Then iron them backwards.
Neaten the hems of the sleeves and iron them according to the pattern.
Sew the prepared sleeves into the body, right sides together, and neaten the seam allowances together.
Stitch the arm hem.
Sew a second ribbon to the side seam on the right side of the body from the inside.
Here you can see a detailed photo of the inner ribbon.
Finish the front edge completely and press the seam allowance inwards.
Stitch the front edge and push the last two ribbons into the front edge.
Close the 4 ruffle hem pieces right sides together and neaten the seam allowances.
Then neaten the lower edge and a short stretch with the overlock machine. Now gather the entire ribbon along the stretch of the jacket hem. To do this, measure the hem line on the cut. This prevents the hem from stretching.
Sew the gathered ruffle to the hem of the jacket and overcast the seam allowances.
Then topstitch the seam allowance of the hem one foot wide upwards.
Here you can see a detailed photo of the processed hem.
