I am posting about a shirt I have made in college. This shirt includes a yoke, cuffs, a collar and bishop sleeves. Firstly, here are my patterns and how I adapted them from the first draft.
1. This is my first draft which I traced around a basic shirt block marking notches. The block includes the front and back shirt piece, the sleeve and the cuff. it cannot be seen brilliantly as I traced lightly in pencil but you get my drift.
.2. I then traced the back shirt piece without the yoke, the yoke on its own and then the front shirt piece and the cuff. These didn't need manipulated so I also added a 1.5cm seam allowance to all of these.
3. I then cut the pattern piece out after tracing around the new sleeve pattern and I slashed and spread the sleeve, the middle pieces I measured equally at 8cm. I then spread the other two pieces on the right by 8cm and 4cm on the other side. I then traced over the adapted pattern and had my final pattern piece for the bishop sleeve.
4. I then began to create a pocket pattern by placing my whole hand on a piece of paper and marking off the corners of my hand. I used dashed lined to mark and then used a ruler to create the straight pocket piece.
I was then ready to manufacture!
1. Firstly, I pinned my pattern pieces onto my fabric and then cut them out, I also cut out interfacing for my cuff, button stand, collar stand and collar.
2. I ironed on my interfacing to the button stand and folded it over and then top stitched in place close to the edge.
3. I added a small box pleat in the centre back piece following notches and secured with a tacking stitch. I then sandwiched this back shirt piece in between my back two yoke pieces and sewed them together with a 1.5cm SA.
