Step 2 Cutting out


The pattern layout below shows you how to place the pattern pieces on the fabric. Make sure that the grain line marked on each pattern piece runs parallel to the selvedges of the fabric.
Top fabric
 1 centre front 2x
 2 side front 2x
 3 centre back, on a fold 1x
 4 side back 2x
 5 centre front peplum piece 2x
 6 side front peplum piece 2x
 7 centre back peplum piece,
  on a fold 1x
 8 side back peplum piece 2x
 9 front neck band 2x
10 front facing 2x
11 back facing, on a fold 1x
12 upper sleeve 2x
13 under sleeve 2x
14 shoulder tab 2x
a) 2 loops, a total of 18 cm (7 ins) long, 3 cm (11/4 ins) wide (incl. allowances).
Seam and hem allowances:
Use a ruler and tailor‘s chalk to mark the allowances around the paper pattern pieces: 4 cm (15/8 ins) for hem (peplum pieces and sleeve hems) and 1.5 cm (5/8 in) at all other seams and edges. Cut out the fabric pieces on these lines.
All pieces which are shaded grey in the pattern layout must also be cut from interfacing, adding seam allowances. Iron the interfacing pieces to the wrong side of the respective fabric pieces. Also interface the hem and sleeve hem allowances.
Transfer pattern lines to the fabric:
Lay pieces with interfacing right sides together again or fold in half and pin the paper pattern pieces in place. Transfer pattern piece outlines (seam and hem lines) and all other lines and markings on the pattern pieces, except the grain line, to the wrong fabric side with a tracing wheel and Burda copy paper (see detailed instructions included with the pack). Hand baste along the centre front and joining lines for the loops to make these lines visible on the right side of the fabric.
Preparation of pattern pieces:
Cut lining pieces minus facing. Trim paper pattern piece 2 on the marked lining line. Glue paper pattern pieces 3 + 4 together, from the neck edge. Lay piece 11 on neck edges of piece 3/4 and transfer facing edge to the back piece = lining line (1). Trim away the pattern piece on the lining line and separate pieces 3 and 4 again.
Cut lining:
 2 side front 2x
 3 centre back, on a fold 1x
 4 side back 2x
 6 side front peplum piece 2x
 7 centre back peplum piece,
  on a fold 1x
 8 side back peplum piece 2x
12 upper sleeve 2x
13 under sleeve 2x
Pin centre back of piece 3 to the lining, 2 cm (3/4 in) from fabric fold, to form the ease pleat.
Seam and hem allowances: 1.5 cm (5/8 in) at all seams and edges.
Transfer the pattern piece outlines to the lining pieces.
