1

Cut out all the pieces according to the cutting guide. Neaten the centre-front, upper-front and sides. With right sides together, sew the front and back at the shoulders. The back shoulder seam is longer than the front – this extra length should be at the neck edge.

2

With right sides together, attach the back neck facing to the back neck edge, carefully stitching to the edge of the extended shoulder seam without catching the front panels. Clip the neck edge, understitch and neaten the inner edge of the facing. Turn the facing back so that the shoulder edges of the facing match with the shoulder seam. Stitch in place, following the shoulder seam line.

3

With right sides together, join the underarm seams of the sleeves. Neaten the raw edges. Stitch two rows of gathering stitches around the sleeve head. Matching seams and notches, ease the sleeve to fit the armhole. With right sides together, stitch in place, then neaten the raw edges. Neaten the cuff edges and lower hem, then turn a 2.5cm hem on each one and stitch.
