    Sewing Level: Beginner

    Zero waste pattern cutting is a bit like a puzzle. It is a method of pattern drafting where you utilise a length of fabric end to end by strategically planning your pattern pieces so that everything is used. This pattern is ‘PAPERLESS’ meaning that no printing of large pattern pieces is required. Instead of using full scale paper patterns, you draw your pattern pieces directly onto your fabric with the aid of a cutting plan and small templates.

    This is an oversized cropped shirt made using Zero Waste Pattern Cutting. It has a dropped shoulder, neck band and button front closure. Length of bodice is easily adjustable to your preference. The width of the garment is variable depending on the fabric width you use. Comes with 2 simple hack options.
