Difficulty: *

You will need: knitwear; fusing; double needle.

Attention! Fabric consumption varies depending on the size of garment. First of all, print out paper patterns and lay them out at the width of fabric/ knit you plan to use, to see how much fabric you will need.

When sewing the garment, pay attention to notches- they must coincide.

Cutting :


1. Front part - 1 folded detail
2. Back part - 2 details
3. Sleeve - 2 details
4. Neckline decorative detail - 2 folded details

Fusing: outer side of neckline decorative detail.


Apply the fusing to wrong side of outer side of neckline decorative detail.

Sew back middle seam and side seams. Press allowances apart.

Sew sleeve seams. Press sleeve hem allowances into wrong side and topstitch at 2 cm (3/4") with double needle.

Sew sleeves into open armholes. Press allowances of front/back seams (in armhole upper parts).

Fold outer and inner decorative neckline detail along the center, right side together, then sew back edges. Press allowances. Apply both decorative details right sides together, and pin neckline edges. Sew. Cut seam allowances close to stitches; slash rounding and front middle line toward the stitch. Turn decorative detail right side out. Overcast the edge and press it, then tack open edges. To prevent front corner from peeling off, apply a small piece of fusing to wrong side on marking of decorative details' joining seam. Pin the decorative detail into neckline, from middle of neckline to back middle seam, coinciding marks of decorative detail's joining marks and crosswise marks. Decorative detail's outer part must be on garment right side. Sew decorative detail in, making fix stitches at the beginning and at the end of seam.

Slash front allowance at front middle line to last stitch. Sew the second half of decorative detail in, from front middle line to back middle seam. Make fixes at beginning and end of the seam. Overcast both allowances of decorative detail joining seam, press towards front part, back part and sleeves.

Press the hem into wrong side, then topstitch at 2 cm (3/4") with double needle.
