In the following steps I will show you how I altered the Emily pattern. I mostly followed the steps for making the Stella blouse in Cal Patch’s book. Whit this tutorial you can get the idea to alter a basic shirt pattern into a completely different style. I didn’t take photos of the sewing, because my batteries were low, and because of the deadline I couldn’t wait. Forgive me that the pictures are not perfect nor my english. Please let me know if you have any question.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
