If you are making a product for yourself, askSomeone to help you make the right measurements. The fact is that it is extremely difficult to remove the backrest yourself, for example. Prepare the paper, the handle - put on a thin and not giving extra clothing - stand up straight, without excess tension. Then, using a special centimeter tape, remove and record the following measurements:

    • Neck circumference (OR) - horizontal measurement is carried out along the base of the neck-

    • Length of the shoulder (DP) - measurement is from the point at the base of the neck to the point of the shoulder joint-

Stage 2: drawing a pattern

Self-compose and calculate a patternThe right model for a beginner tailor will not be easy. Therefore, as a basis, you can take a ready-made pattern from the fashion magazine. Many publications of a similar theme attach to the photographs of the products sets of patterns in full size. You will need to choose your favorite blouse and transfer the pattern to a special tracing paper using a pencil or with a copying roller on a large sheet of paper.
Before you transfer the finished pattern,Compare your measurements with the data indicated in the special size table. Such tables are usually attached to each tab with patterns. The exact coincidence of your measures with the above parameters may not be, but this is not critical. Select the option closest to your measurements and adjust the size of the finished pattern according to your measurements. Next, on the resulting contours, cut out the paper pattern and proceed to cut the fabric.

Stage 3: cutting the fabric

Pay attention - in serious magazines,Offering ready-made patterns, gives advice on the most suitable texture of fabric and additional hardware. In addition, on the finished drawings of the patterns, the direction of the main thread is indicated, along which it is necessary to make a cut.

Another important point: Do not cut the fabric with ordinary paper scissors! For these purposes, there is a special tailoring tool. The so-called tailor's scissors are larger in size and, as a rule, sharper than normal ones.

The cut out parts of the future blouse are swept away by largeStitches by hand or with a sewing machine. If the estimate is made by machine, it is necessary to slightly loosen the thread tension beforehand - this will make it possible to easily remove unnecessary threads. Trying on and adjusting the "rough" version of the product, you can proceed to the main tailoring of the blouse.
Advice for those who do not have any sewing experience: Try to learn at least the basics of sewing technology. This process requires the observance of many nuances, without knowledge of which it is difficult to achieve a positive result.
