Hellow guys. Welcome to my Blog. Today I'll be teaching how to cut padded blouse. I won't talk much today, I'll just go straight to the point 👉.
  Sewing of padded blouse has been made easy by this following steps I am about to share with you guys.
Here are some patterns or steps below:

First step:

  You take down your measurements, refer to my post on how to take full body measurement
The measurement needed are the measurements of :
  • Shoulder to Nipple
  • Shoulder to Under-bust
  • Shoulder to Half length 
  • Shoulder to Waist
  • Shoulder to Hip
 All these measurements are the length measurements to be taken before marking and cutting a blouse

Second step:

Now you get the width of your measurements How To Get Width Measurement. which are:
  • Round Bust
  • Nipple to nipple
  • Round Under-bust
  • Round Waist (being the half lenght) 
  • Round hip 
  • And shoulder 

Third step:

In this step, you will divide all your width measurements by 4 except your shoulder. Shoulder measurement is always divided by 2. 
After dividing all your measurements by four (4), add additional 4inches for seam allowance and breast cut. 

Fourth step:

Mark all your length on your fabrics and your divided width also...
Don't forget to curve the blouse hip.

Fifth step:

Join all your marked lengths together using a chalk or any marking instrument you can check house equipment used in sewing, then cut.

Sixth Step:

Separate the back from the front
Then this next step below will only and only happen to the front of the blouse.



The breast cut or cup happens in the breast region, i know you all know that.....
Remember the second step says we should measure the nipple to nipple, that is; use your measuring tape, place the 0 inch at the tip of one breast (nipple) and elongate the tape to the tip of the other breast (nipple). Then record the length.

       I will be using 9 Inch for this breast cut  or cup tutorial.

Step One:

Get the length of your nipple to nipple , if you do not know how to do that please check my explanation above. For example; if the recorded nipple to nipple length is 9 Inches. 

Step Two:

Divide the recorded length by 2.... i.e
       9 inches ➗ by 2 = 4 1/2 Inches. 
So that means your bust line is 4 1/2.

Step Three:

Then to the front of the blouse, from your zip allowance; mark in that 4 1/2 inches (bust line). 
From the zip allowance, keep the tape towards the arm hole (keep the tape horizontally) and mark the 4 1/2 inches.

Step Four:

use a ruler, check Suitable Rulers for sewing to draw down the 4 1/2 inches you marked initially. 

Step Five: 

On your cloth you mark your Shoulder to Nipple length.
On the under-bust, From the 4 1/2 Inches line you marked, you mark IN 1 1/2 Inches (towards the zip allowance)and mark OUT another 2 Inches (towards the end part of the blouse)

Step Six:

In the waist region, mark IN 1 inch and mark OUT 1 1/2 Inches.
   And in the hip region; mark IN 1/2 inch and mark OUT 1/2 inch too.

Step Seven:

From the shoulder to nipple length, you curve it to meet the marked 2 inches in the under-bust line and do the same thing to the other 1 1/2 inches in the other part of the blouse (towards the zip allowance). After curving it, join all the marked inches together. Check the image above.

Step Eight:

In the shoulder region, mark IN 1 1/2 inches and mark OUT 1 1/2 inches. Then you curve it to meet the shoulder to nipple length.

     WARNING: In the process of curving the bust or breast, make sure you begin the curve from the shoulder down to the under-bust and it MUST touch the tip of the 4 1/2 inches line in the nipple region (BUST REGION).

Step Nine:

After curving and joining aTll the marked length together, then use your scissors to cut  the marked fabrics.......
