This is a sew-a-long for the Angel Trumpet Top pattern. It is an easy pattern to sew, with enough glamour for the holidays! I have used a satin fabric with a little bit of stretch in it but this model will also look fabulous in many different fabrics. My next one will be made out of a lovely denim for summer time.
1) place drafting paper on your pattern and trace your size. Make sure you check the measurements (cm)in the size chart first. Make sur to copy the arrows on the pattern.
Next, cut out the pattern pieces and place them on the folded fabric. Tape the two paper pattern pieces of the waistband together. You can add seam allowances with tailors chalk on the fabric later. The arrows on the paper pieces need to align/ be parallel to the fold line or the selvage of the fabric. Because both front and back pieces are on the fold, it is best to fold the fabric with the selvages in the middle of the fabric so you create two fold lines (see 2nd picture below)
Next, cut out the fabric with a seam allowance of 1,5 cm. On the hem line of the front and back piece add 3 cm's . I used my seam allowance magnets to cut the fabric.
Next, Place the sleeve pattern pieces on the interfacing and cut it out. Iron the interfacing on the wrong sides of two of the fabric sleeve pieces.
You are now ready to start sewing the garment together!
On Thursday December 19 we will show you the next steps in this sew-a-long.
