Hiding in plain stripes, some KCW Ottobre sewing

Hey everyone! For those of you sewing along with KCW, tell me, how are you doing? I'm still working on the button up shirt I started but when reaching the step of sleeve plackets I felt like taking a break and sewing something in between. So I made the Steampunk shirt from the latest Ottobre edition (6/2015).

It's a loose fit raglan shirt with slightly different sleeve seams. A breeze to sew, just don't forget to add the seam allowance.

The striped sweater jersey is Lillestoff, the mustard I used for the cuffs and neckbinding are NOSH.

I really like this look, so you'll probably see more steampunks popping up over here.

  8. hi! this might be a dumb question, as I am relatively new to sewing from patterns...but do you need to always add seam allowance? does this mean to not cut exactly on the edge of the pattern but leave a little space for seam allowance? thanks!

    1. Hi Gina, adding seam allowances depends on the pattern. Most pdf patterns already have a seam allowance included so you don't have to add this. If you're sewing from an Ottobre magazine, you have to add that space to the edge of the patternpieces. It's always mentioned in the pattern if and how much allowance you have to add (usually 1cm).
