The pattern is completed now, it fits me well. I now use it over and over again. With a seam allowance of only 1 cm and using a zig zag stitch (stitch length 3, stitch width 1)
I can get a shirt out of 1 m of fabric, thanks to the broad hip band.
The back panel is slightly less wide than the front panel, because boobs and sway back.
The same pattern again, only a bit elongated and with sleeves cut of. Sleeves and neckline have a strip folded double. The hem is just folded under and stitched, with a zigzag.
For dresses I need the length of the dress. 1.20 m gets me a dress just above the knee.
Sleeve strips are 29 cm in length. Neck line strip 48 cm. Make it small otherwise it will stand up, as it does a bit with the purple cat fabric shirt:
With all shirts and dresses I sew the seams with a zig zag and I do not use an overlocker since jersey/ tricot fabric does not ravel. I do, however, do a second run at the seams of the shoulders and the sides for reinforcement. So that when one thread bursts the garment does not fall from my body.
The cuffs of the shirts are sewn sand loper shaped, before folding double and attaching to the sleeve. This way the cuff tapers down when I wear it. It makes the difference between wearing a pyjama top or an urban garment.
