Part 4. Warmed baby vest + simple cut

Posted on

The spring is coming, and we have decided to shorten the time to wait for you to create a nice guide for a simple little waist that can not be missed in any wardrobe of small paradise or paradien. We admit that this guideline is more for girls, but we think the smart seamstresses can handle and manage the appropriate combination of fabric colors, create a vest for boys as well.


[# 60 Picture:]

Here we go. What we need? Certainly two fabrics that are flexible and are different in color and pattern. The best combination will be one pattern and one unicolour. We used the tracksuit and the fleece. The lower the weight of the substance, the more it will merge. Next, prepare two buttons and like a ribbon, for example ribbon, decorative tissue, we used an oblique strip.

We can cut both materials wearing together. Facing with us, but from experience we know that if the materials are cut twice, four layers of material are cut, one of the layers is larger after cutting, such cutting is inaccurate and we do not recommend it. Therefore, it is better to cut one material and cut the cut out shape to the other and cut it exactly.

Measure the length and width of the waistcoat for the child - ie. how much we want the material to cover its hands. We can make ¾ length, elbow or short sleeves. If we want the vest to be elbows, we measure the length from elbow to elbow. We transfer this measured value to the substance. In the half of the fold we pin the pin as a mark of the center of the pieces, from which we then measure the hole for the head.

The front and back are essentially the same, so we fold the pattern material so we can see the pattern exactly half a half.

From the top edge of the material, leave the 2 cm add-on to the seam tab, measure the length of the waistcoat, and add 1-2 cm of the seam book to length and cut.

We're going to shape the vest. It is up to you to shape the dowry, or to leave a rectangular shape. We will have a round shape for the edging of the edges. We put the vest in the middle of the half and the waist around the back, so the edges do not move. For ease of use you can use, for example, a plate or bowl, and circular shape to sketch. We straighten the rounded vest shape and cut it out. After the cut, pull out the pins and pull the two halves again.

[# 62 Picture:]

We measure the circumference of our child's neck with the tailor's subway. To help cut out the neckline, we can use another round item, such as a mug. Measure the cup circumference in the same way and take the one that matches the circumference of the baby's neck. Put half a cup and shape the shape. Add 1 cm around for freedom, and this 1 cm will be taken as a seam bookmark. Cut off the neckline just at the point of the sketch.

We put the waistband parts on the cheeks, pinch them on the shoulders, and we can stitch on the machine. We also do this because we have a pattern with which we could not only translate to half, because then the cats on our back would stay upside down. If you have a pattern that does not make it a problem, you can leave the fabric compound and skip this procedure.

[# 64 Picture:]

We cut the stapled, stretched parts to the other material face to face, and carefully pinch them so that there are no bubbles or unevenness, and both parts are the same. So let's get stuck together so we'll do the same with the neckline, then carefully cut it off with the other material. We choose which of the same halves will be front and rear. And from the pin pointing the center, which we noticed earlier, we draw a straight line from the neck down to the bottom edge of the straight line, which is cut by both the sides of the drawn line and the neck. Right now, it is clear that the right and left front parts have just been formed, which cut after stitching on the machine.

[# 65 Picture:]

On the lower edge of the back panel, we measure a 15 cm wide hole that will not be stitched, as this stitch waits for a stitched vest. We can begin to sew from one pin pointed 15 cm hole, and around the circumference, along with the stitching of the left and right edge of the workpiece, and the neckline round. After stitching, we cut the center of the edges on the front, and cut several incisions in the neckline to allow the round hole to rotate and shape well.

With the open hole, we put the back on the back and pull the vest to the side. Then, from inside, settle the seams around the edges and the neckline, and then trim the face from the back to let us stitch the vest. For thicker materials, it is not just ironing, but the edges of the stitching are still in the edges that are still open. We also fasten a 15cm wide hole and either we can stitch in the hand with a hidden stitch or straight sewing on the machine during stitching. We will iron the stitched vest.

Compare the vest and note where we'll have the tabs and buttons. As a loop we can use a ribbon, a decorative weave, we used an oblique strip. Then we knit the buttons manually.

[# 70 Picture:]

We have passed our vest in the hips to keep it under, but it is wide enough. We measure the child's back width from the armpits to the armpits and add 5 cm of each side for freedom. We will make a pin from the center of the mark. Next, we measure from the shoulder to the waist and also make a pin with a pin and where the pins meet the beginning of the "sleeve". Which slaning tendency you choose is on you, horizontally like a kimono, or vertically down like a bunny. We are doing stitching from the middle obliquely. Thanks to the added centimeters, a sweatshirt or sweater can fit under the belt.

So the vest is done. We hope you like the tutorial and we will be glad to show you your sewn waistcoats.
