DIY: Ottobre + Lillestoff
Pattern: Ottobre Winter 6/2015 Pattern #14
Step 1: Trace + cut out pattern (I use clear drawer/shelf lining to trace the pattern)
Step 2: Serge pieces 1 + 2 together, and topstitch with a hemstitch/ladder stitch or use a cover stitch machine.
Step 3: Sew pieces 4 + 5 together (I used Jersey, so I did not add buttons or a zipper to pieces 4+5) cover stitch or use a hem stitch along the back seam.
Step 4: Pin pleat on piece 3, serge piece 3 to pieces 1+2.
Step 5: Serge the shoulder seam of pieces 1+2 & 4.
Step 6: Iron the cuff of the sleeve inwards, I prefer to use iron-on hem tape to hold in place, cover stitch, do the same for the bottom hem of the garment
Step 7: Serge the sleeve to pieces 2+4, serge down the inner sleeve and the side seam of the shirt. Tie-off threads, iron and complete!
