Hi, fashion enthusiasts!
So I’ve been getting many questions on off shoulder lately. I decided to make this for you to see that it’s very easy and you can do it. I actually cut and sewed it this morning… yeah I’m bad like that???
See pictures at the bottom.
The principles of making this is the same as making something with the shoulder.
There are 2 ways to cutting off shoulder styles
1) You can cut it as if you want to put the shoulder on it, then cut the section you don’t want off. That would mean you measure the full length of the blouse and take out the shoulder to the neck area.
2) You deduct the shoulder to the neck part first before cutting the remaining length of the blouse.
They style of cutting I did is the number 2 option. I removed the shoulder and neck first then completed my length of 24 inches.
Eg. 8 for neck
Full length 24
23- 8 = 16
The length of the body now is 16 inches
The wideness of the body. My hip is 43 I simply added 6 inches to that to make it wide because I wanted some gathers in it.
My sleeve is 15inch
After joining the sides, I fixed the hand and passed half inch elastic through the neck and sleeve to make the blouse.
