Women's shirt with a zipper

Hello, dear visitors. Today I can offer you an idea or just tell you how to sew a shirt without buttons with a zipper with a turn-down collar. For its pattern, you can take a fabric that does not stretch well or hardly stretches (for example, chintz). The shirt, made of this fabric, is suitable for wearing in spring, summer and early autumn. It takes about a week of time to make it, if you sew by hand. So it looks like when fitting:

To sew such a shirt, necessary materials are needed, such as: - Measuring tape; - Pure paper for making samples; - Pen, pencil; - Fabric for pattern (we have a simple chintz) Threads; - Clasp - zipper; - Needles for tempering Bani;. - Sewing machine or needle for sewing Starting work with patterns, you must first measure the size of a future special tape shirt.But it is much easier to obtain this data when measuring the size of any other of the shirts or dresses in the waist, taken for a sample; these data will be the most accurate. We have, for example, the data such: shoulder length - 8.5 cm, neck length - 25 cm, waist circumference - 65 cm, chest circumference - 77 cm, length from shoulder to the waist - 50 cm; arm length - 30 cm., arm circumference - 17 cm. According to these parameters, or data, we need to make two samples of paper - front and back.

At the beginning of work we wanted to make a shirt with buttons, but there were no buttons and later we decided that it would be better to make it with a zipper. If you fasten both samples together, then you can more accurately calculate the position of the shoulders and sides so that these areas coincide in both samples. Next, the resulting paper samples need to be pinned with special needles for stabbing to the fabric, and then cut the fabric samples, leaving small areas for allowance at the edges (2–3 cm wide), in order to make individual fabric samples more comfortable to sew with each other. We decided to cut the upper part (shoulder) of the front side of the shirt cut and cut out fabric two models on this model.(Because the pointed neck of our shirt is pointed, it will be a little inconvenient to cut the seams at the very bottom of this cut (extra fabric will be needed to sheathe the top)). If you sew two parts of such a pattern, right and left, then connect them together, the finished shirt will look good:

Now we cut out from the fabric a sample of the back of the shirt. In order to get cut exactly, we decided to fold the fabric with a paper pattern in half. After that, having fastened them together, we cut it out with small indents:

Now we need to make paper samples of the sleeves. First, we make drawings of the samples that we need to cut and then use to make the pattern:

Next, we sew in both samples the front part of the future neckline shirt . Having folded two to three times the areas of the allowance, we fix them with needles for stabbing, after which we make the seams.You can use a sewing machine, and you can make the seams yourself - which will be more convenient:

Almost the same thing we need to do with the neckline at the back future shirt:

Now we sew together the two sides of the front of the shirt, also fastening them with sewing needles , and on one of the sides we need to sew a zipper:

We have a little fabric left, and therefore we sew each sleeve in two parts and shorten the sleeves (initially, we expected to make them in full length). Having rolled up the allowance sections several times on both sides, we sew first the sides of the sleeves, and then the cuffs. A small section of the allowance should be left at the shoulders in order to sew the finished sleeves to the shirt:

Next, we sew the front and back of the future shirt, and we decided to start sewing from the shoulders. Noticing that one shoulder is slightly higher than the other,we decided to slightly dissolve the site of the allowance at the short shoulder, extending it in this way and leveling both shoulders. After that, you can join the seams of the sides and sew the ready-made sleeves:  Women's shirt with a zipper So almost finished shirt looks from the back:

Now all we have to do is fold the sections of the allowance at the bottom of the pattern and stitch them:

Now we turn the resulting shirt out of the wrong side:

After that, the shirt can be considered finished: it looks good without a collar during fitting, but if you like, you can make a collar from the remaining fabric. We decided to make it out of four parts - shreds:

Having folded each side of the collar several times on both sides of the fold so that the fabric threads do not crumble outside ,you must first carefully sew the seams from the side of the future collar, and then sew the resulting collar to the shirt.  Women's shirt with a zipper When sewing a collar, we will need to make two seams: The first seam will have to connect the collar with the neckline by the edges, and the second one - to connect the lower edges of the folded portion of the allowance to the neckline fabric. We have made such sewing patterns along which our pa bot: Women's shirt with a zipper Women's shirt with a zipper We made all the seams without a machine, and we didn't even need needles for stabbing. This work looked like this:

So we need to make and sew all the remaining parts of the collar:

If the ends of the already sewn collar in some places are too lifted and open up to the seams, you can hem them to the fabric,after which the shirt will be completely ready. This is our shirt:
