Charlène, whose universe is both colourful and poetic, shares her Atelier Brunette experience with our Les Brunettes.
Here are a few of her words about this new model (sewn with love).
To sew LA Jupe with the tie belt.
This hack is suitable for the buttoned version (A) of LA Jupe.
To sew this hack, replace it with step /4/ SEW THE WAISTBAND. Then go back to step /5/ BUTTON PLACKET until you have made your Atelier Brunette LA Jupe sewing pattern.
Cut pieces 5A, 5B and 5C to replace the original LA Jupe waistband.
Replace the steps for making the belt with the tutorial below. To finish the remaining LA Jupe (assembly of the skirt parts, button placket, etc.) refer to the booklet.
Apply interlining to the three belt pieces.
Place piece 5A right side up against piece 5B at the short sides with two notches. (Photo A)
Pin and stitch 1 cm from the edge between each pair of notches so that you can create openings later on.
You can draw markers for your seam with a pen to guide you under the machine. (Photo B)
Right sides together, pin piece 5C to the short side of piece 5B. Stitch 1 cm from the edge and press the seam open. (Photo C)
Fold the belt right sides together on the ends: on the right side, sew the point of the belt up to the double notch and on the left side, pin the point up to the assembly seam of part 5B. (Photo D)
Fold the corners of the belt end as in the photo. This folding makes it possible to obtain very sharp angles without stripping the seam allowance in order to avoid weakening the seam over time. (Photo E)
Turn each end of the belt over. You can use a pass guide tool to make this step easier. Simply insert the plastic tube inside the belt, then using the metal rod inserted from the closed side of the belt you can
easily turn it over. Press well. (Photo F)
Smile, you're almost done !
Right sides together, pin the tie belt together on the skirt waistline, matching the notches. Stitch 1 cm from the edge. (Photo G)
Using the iron, flatten the seam allowance towards the inside of the waistband.
Fold the waistband inwards and mark a 1 cm seam allowance so that the crease of the seam is aligned with your previous seam. Pin all the way. (Photo H)
Place your tie belt right side out in front of you under the presser foot.
Sew a topstitch 2 mm from the waistband assembly seam. (Photo I)
