In the wardrobe of every fashionista there must be a pretty cute blouse from a seductive translucent chiffon. Such a thing is very romantic and feminine and can bring coquetry and playfulness into the image. If there is not such a blouse, then urgently you need to fix the situation and sew yourself this cute little thing, after all, having put on a thin fabric, you can turn your heads and watch admiring glances.
About the style and colors
Depending on the cut and the color of the material, such a blouse can be combined with a variety of garments. For example, a variegated blouse in the form of a top will look great with a denim skirt or shorts and as it is impossible for stati to be in the summer. A one-tonne model will fit a tight trouser suit. This combination will dilute severity, but will be within the business style.
Blouses from chiffon with their own hands (patterns will be discussed in this article) are sewn simple, you just have to be patient and assiduous, and also a thin needle for the sewing machine that will not beat the fabric, and you can start working.
General information about the pattern
How is a chiffon blouse sewed? Pattern is the first stage of work. To develop it must be approached responsibly, since it depends on it the entire outcome of the work. For the construction it is necessary to measure the figure: the circumference of the waist, hips, chest and upper arm. Further, for convenience, all values should be divided in half. To come out a great blouse from chiffon, the pattern should match the style of the free cut. Even if there are thawed darts in it, the finished thing should not fit the figure, but, on the contrary, be somewhat large. This will not spoil the species at all, but, on the contrary, will create the necessary fabric folds, repeating the waist bends and other lines of the female figure.
Basics of construction
So, how to build a blouse from chiffon? The pattern can be drawn on simple glued sheets of paper, and after it is cut out and transferred to the fabric. To build it, you should hold a vertical, equal to the length from the shoulder to the bottom of the product, and three horizontal lines: the lines of the hips, waist and chest. The length of each of them should be 14 measured measurements +5 cm. You can also measure the width of the transmission, this will help to determine how to deeply draw armholes, but this is only necessary for a blouse with a vtachnym sleeve. If it is whole-faced, then this measure will not be needed. Next, you should draw a neck through which the head will easily pass, otherwise you will have to make out the cut-outs and fasteners on the button or button. After drawing the shoulder with an inclination of about 5-10 degrees. Here you can extend the shoulder line, modeling the desired length of the sleeve. Next, pay attention to the side seam. Namely, smoothly connect all three lines among themselves and, reaching the beginning of the armhole, round it and bring it to the sleeve, drawing its second seam. In principle, on this basis building can be completed, and begin to experiment with cutouts, figure bottom and so on.
The most simple blouse
The simplest pattern of a chiffon sleeveless blouse can look like two rectangles, the width of the corresponding waist or chest, plus 7-8 cm and the length from the shoulder to the middle of the thighs. For sewing in it, you need to sew details over the shoulders, leaving a place for the neck, as well as side seams, without sewing armholes. Such blouses from chiffon with their own hands (patterns resemble simple squares or rectangles) at the bottom or at the waist can be assembled on a string of elastic band, having attached it from the inside with a small zigzag. Or at the waist to make a girdle of a rough lace.
Blouse with a sleeve
The pattern of a blouse made of chiffon with a short sleeve can also be cut by simple manipulations. Namely in the form of rectangles with cut and rounded in the armholes side seams. With this cutting, you only need to make four seams and process the throat and the bottom of the product. This type of tailoring for a chiffon blouse is the most optimal, especially if you need a short sleeve, because this fabric is loose, and the product in the process of wearing it can simply "creep".
The pattern of a chiffon blouse with sleeves is more suitable for models with long sleeves with assemblies on the shoulders. Open this blouse is also not very difficult. A rounded pellet, extended to the top in order to stitch the folds for processing, sufficiently wide armholes for a free fit will help hide the small defects in cut.
Blouse without sleeves
The pattern of a chiffon sleeveless blouse can look like an ordinary shirt and be fitted at the side seams. To make such a product beautifully looked on the figure and not torn by folds on the chest, the product template should be placed "oblique". This means that the fabric should be folded in a corner in half, aligned perpendicular sides, and cut the details so that the fold passes exactly in the middle. The pattern can be made by replicating the cut lines from a shirt suitable for size, and adding 3-4 cm on all sides for seams and free fitting. However, it should be borne in mind that this level is more suitable for experienced craftsmen, and beginners are better able to master work with chiffon on simple models
Seam processing and assembly
Quite often, even experienced seamstresses can not cope with such loose material as chiffon, which also strives to "run away" from under the scissors and skew. That is why to cut such a fabric is better in one layer.
For the processing of slices and the laying of seams, it is necessary to select a very thin needle, which will not knock out separate strands from the web. To ensure that when you combine the details of the fabric does not seem to be assembled, you do not need to put on the machine too big a step. If this trick did not work, then you should sew details with a small zigzag with a narrow stitch.
The order of assembly also plays an important role. First of all, one shoulder should be sewn, after processing the throat with oblique bye or zigzag with turning the edge inside out and then closing the second shoulder. Next comes the treatment of armholes. If there is a vtachnoy sleeve, it is first accommodated in the armhole and processed by the overlock overlock and only then pass to the lateral seams and the processing of the bottom.
What should be a chiffon blouse? Pattern - this is just the basis on which you can create absolutely unlike each other models. And in this important role can play decorative elements.
Little tricks for skilled workers
Chiffon has a property to be highly electrified, which can greatly hinder the cutting, so it is not superfluous to keep an antistatic handy.
If you want to cut a piece "obliquely", then the line of the middle along the folded corner is better to draw with chalk and after unfolding the cloth for cutting into one layer.
Chiffon is very beautifully draped, and its transparency makes it possible not to weight the silhouette with the number of folds, so this material is simply ideal for various assemblies on an elastic band or kuliska, as well as for multi-layer products.
