Paganoonoo Upcycle Sewing Instructions PDF Cindy Blouse & Double Collar. Featured on It's Sew Easy PBS series 1300.PDF DOWNLOAD• Feminine, front button blouse with hip ease• Slimming "hourglass" shape illusion from decorative front panel • Side panel color-block design• ¾ length sleeves with decorative band • Front hem dips several inches at back• BONUS Double Collar Pattern adds extra style• Immediate Digital Computer Download File• See Shop Listing for Hard Copy Pattern.The Cindy Blouse creates a wonderful optical illusion...with a decorative front panel in an "hourglass" shape, mimicking a curvy bust, waist, and hips. The panel breaks up the breadth of the blouse drawing the eye to the curved shape. Ladies, this is great news for all of us, and especially for curvy girls like me!The silhouette features the signature Paganoonoo high/low hem and loose fitting hip. This blouse has 3/4 sleeves with a decorative band. The side insets add 6" to 9" of ease at the hip. Optionally, a double collar adds flair and dresses up the look even more. The overall effect is feminine, comfortable, and confident. The cover version was made with 3 men's dress shirts mixed for a color-blocked effect, but it can be made with just 2 shirts. The Cindy looks particularly good in bold stripes with a high contrast decorative panel and double collar. Make endless variations with this design! The Cindy is upcycled* using two dress shirts (instead of flat fold fabric). With upcycling, there is no need to print, cut out and tape together PATTERN PIECES. The starting materials are 3D garments, so instead the "pattern" is instructions and illustrations that define exactly what and where to cut (disassemble) and how to reassemble the pieces. You are purchasing a set of instructions that you print on 8.5" by 11" paper which can be put in a binder for future ease of reference. ALL SIZES ARE INCLUDED in that the size/fit of the finished garment is determined by the size of the shirt used for the upper torso, the other parts are self-scaling. ANYONE, any size, who can find a dress shirt to fit the way they like across the shoulders and bust, can successfully fit this pattern. If the shirt is tight at the hip, this is not a problem; the instructions walk you through the design process of adding ease. The sewing is straightforward piece assembly, mostly using topstitching. All of the tough parts like the collar, collar band, plackets, buttonholes are already sewn on the starting garments, making your job easier! The customization is achieved by picking the right size starting garment and making choices about where to cut by looking at the garment fit on your own body. ADDITIONAL BONUS - Includes a 4-page tip sheet on design elements, color selection, fit, garment care, and technical tips. See Designer Michelle Paganini’s article on upcycling in the Threads Magazine Feb/March 2015 issue! She was also featured on It's Sew Easy series 1300 and 1400. Her segment on Double Collars is available on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l05NRsnZBeg&t=431s . Upcycling our existing clothes into new fashions is good for the planet, and really great on the budget!!*UPCYCLING is taking something existing, like clothing, and transforming it into something of greater value. This set of instructions and illustrations will walk you through every step of selecting garments, disassembly and reassembly, to create a beautiful, custom fit, one-of-a-kind garment. Ideal for Remembrance Sewing!WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY about Paganoonoo Patterns: "Easy to follow directions with lots of great tips.” “Absolutely brilliantly clear & concise instructions..."
