Stitch Pattern before and after Cut and Sew
This project is entirely cut and sewn.
The picture on the left shows the pieces on the mannequin, with all the excess fabric that will be serged off.
The picture on the right shows the result after serging off the excess fabric, and linking small circular bands to the serged off seams.
The picture below shows the collar. It is removable and, depending on how you place it, it can be worn ‘rounded’, as in the picture, or ‘pointed’. This is because of how its shape was constructed (see shape file).
*2 rows in full needle rib (both beds) at tension 0 on both carriaqes with slide lever on II, followed by 6 pintuck rows (on one bed only), at tension 2 on both carriages, slide lever on I*. Repeat *-*.
I chose the second technique.
The shape was designed in Original Pattern Drafting.
The file has 9 pieces: Front tool, back tool, front, back, front 1 and 2, back 1 and 2, collar.
The cuffs and edgings, knitted separately, are not represented in the shape file.
