Hello, hiveans!!! Tis the season to be jolly and bright.
Thinking of an outfit to make in a jiffy that will give you that classy and decent look? You are on the right blog.
This is a step-by-step format for making a classy outfit with ease and quickly.
For this outfit, I chose a light chiffon fabric with a vibrant color that will work beautifully for the summer and in a hot damp region where light, bright and breezy is the best deal.
First I drew a mock-up of what I would want to create with the following measurements as seen written beside the drawings of the pair.
The parts necessary to cut out this pattern as written in the picture above.
For the crop top
Shoulder to upper burst
Shoulder to burst point
Shoulder to underbust
Shoulder to waist
Round under burst
Round high waist
For the Trousers
High waist to hip
High waist to crotch
High waist to knee
Round high waist
The items I used are;
• A pair of scissors
• Measuring tape
• Sewing thread
• And a sewing machine
Then I folded the fabric in the width of the biggest part of my lower body (the hips) dividing the hip measurement by 4 and adding a 1.5-inch allowance to cut out the front part of the palazzo.
I drew out the measurements for the front part of the trouser with a chalk following through with my measuring tape before cutting it out with scissors.
In the same vein using the front cut-out print I placed it on a folded fabric of a width and height slightly bigger than the front with an allowance of 3 to 4 inches.
For the top
I added an allowance of 2 inches to the width for ease and cut out a round neck of 3 by 5 inches on the folded fabric as seen below.
The final stop was sewing on the sewing machine.
After a few hours of sewing... Here is the result!
