Tutorial Tamara Dress: Blouse version, with ruffled sleeves.

Here's a new video tutorial in the form of a surprise, as it accompanies the publication of our new issue of L'Oeil Fauve magazine.

As in the previous issue, this tutorial is an opportunity to revisit a flagship pattern from Maison Fauve, the Tamara dress pattern. Don't worry, the video describes in detail all the steps needed to sew the original pattern. But I also give you a hack for the pattern: cut short into a blouse, with pretty ruffles in the sleeve cut... Perfect to dance in beauty for the holidays!

For this version I choose this pretty viscose crepe from Pretty Mercerie (leopard, I never get tired of it ;) ).

The technical points of the Tamara pattern are: sewing darts and pleats, understanding the garment assembly of the wrap, placing and stabilising a facing discreetly, mounting sleeves (and the 2 types of sleeve finishing are described) and a sleeve band.

To sew this blouse you will need less fabric than for the dress: remove 1m 20 of the indicated fabric (this one varies according to your gradation size). The pleat band is 80 cm long and 10 cm wide and is cut lengthwise in the direction of the thread.

So, what kind of Tamara Femme Fauve will you be?

Happy sewing!
