Sgt. Pepper Tunic
using this method I cut double of everything, and I made cuffs for the sleeves. (also not pictured the skirt pieces which were just rectangles 2.5 times the width of the bodice and then length I wanted)
2. I started by sewing loops of bias tape down to the front piece. I made each loop slightly shorter than the first. I sewed along the top and bottom of the bias tape to secure.
3. Then I added some buttons at each end only for decoration.
4. Then sew the front and back pieces together at the shoulder.
5. Gather the skirt piece and sew it to the bottom of the bodice, both front and back.
6.Then I added the zipper to the back, I used an invisible zipper. I also added the sleeves into the sleeve curve, but didn't take a picture.
7. Then with front and back right sides together sew from the sleeve to the armpit and down the side. Then I did all the same steps from 4-7 for the lining. Then place the lining and outer layer right sides together.
8. Here is about where the pictures stopped, so try and stay with me. Sew the lining and outer pieces together along the neckline. Then turn the dress right side out. Fold the lining back edge in and then topstitch along the zipper edge. Sew right sides together the skirt pieces below the zipper so the back is sewn up. Then add the cuffs to the sleeve, how? Basically just like the cuffs from this top. The sleeves and cuffs are pretty much just like those, (my go to fall sleeve) Oh then I hemmed the bottom of the top, (both layers) Did you follow that? Yeah I know pretty bad... but in general it's a pretty basic top.
So what are you sewing up for KCWC?
