Sari is the most sensual of all the ensembles. It may even make you seem the drabbest. It’s all about how you wear it and the blouse. When wearing a sari, a well-fitting sari blouse is important.
A saree blouse is a form-fitting fabric that accentuates all of our body’s curves. It has darts near the bust that give it structure. A Saree blouse can also be made without them. However, this one with darts looks fantastic, particularly on curvy women.
To stitch a saree blouse make sure that you have the following measurements –
- Front Length Measurement of the bust ( from front armpit to the other over the highest point of the bust) measurement of the back ( From back armpit to the other armpit)
- Shoulder to shoulder communication the thickness of the sleeves
- Round sleeve
- Armholes are measured. The armscye is surrounded from both sides.
- The neckline at the back
- The neckline on the front
- Waist circumference
Follow the given steps –
- Sew the darts in the front bodice from the inside. Remember to leave long thread tails at the top of the dart. This is used to protect the stitches by binding them up. ( rather than backstitching )
2. Sew the dart pattern in the back as well.
3. Connect the yoke piece’s top edge to the two front bodice sections.
Keep the right side of one waist yoke section in the same place as the right side of the front pattern piece.
Keep the wrong side of the front pattern piece with the right side of the other yoke piece.
Layers of fabric
- Place the first yoke piece right side up.
- Right-side-up bodice piece
- WRONG SIDE UP 2ND YOKE Bit
That is, the cloth edge of the front pattern piece is sandwiched between the top edges of the two yoke bits.
After sewing, this would make the seam edge inside and neat. For the left and right front pieces, the yoke and front pieces are now fused.
4. Join the back and front trends’ shoulders. To make the blouse look properly sewn, finish all of the cloth edges.
5. Assemble the sleeves according to the design. To the front opening, add a placket. To cover the back fabric border, the placket facing strip is sewn to the edge of the front gap, then folded in half and rotated to the other side.
The right side placket is folded to the back. This is where the little metal hooks will be sewed. On the other hand, a projecting placket is used to stitch the thread loops for the hem.
6. Make a neck binding with bias tape. To begin, cut the bias tape. Check out the video if you don’t know how to produce prejudice tape. If you’re not sure how to do it, look at the bias linking guide.
Half-fold the bigotry strip. Fold the binding strip’s edges inward. Stitch the sides together.
Starting from one side of the front bodice, stitch the binding and the neckline right sides together.
7. At the ends, align the front and back bodice sections. Make sure they’re all the same size. Finish the front and back bodice hems. I even do a link here. Binding on hems is a look I prefer. When the facing is turned inside out, it seems to be very neat. This then hands whip stitched.
A blind or whip stitch may also be used. You can stitch a machine hem as well, but hand sewing is more attractive.
8. Sew the side seams on. Your lovely blouse is all set. Do some mirror embroidery, kutch embroidery, or phulkari embroidery on your blouse if you want to go all out.
You can also draw flowers freehand and fill them in with long and short stitches.
