For full pattern instructions, please visit the original post here. All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
The only change I made to the original pattern was the button-up sleeve detail. Cape sleeves have been huge, but sometimes it’s a bit tricky to work runway fashion into your everyday wardrobe. With a button-up inseam, your sleeve can be worn closed for a classic look, or open for some subtle high fashion vibes – especially in the summer!
To do this to your own Setaria Dress, simply pin 10 two inch loops of elastic every inch from the hem of your main fabric sleeve. Place your lining layer on top, fabric faces touching. Sew along the bottom of your sleeves and up both sides, stopping 5″ from the top. Clip the corners of your seam allowance, turn right side out and press.
Individually, sew up the remainder of the lining and main fabric sleeve inseam. Set your sleeve into your blazer, sewing only your main fabric layers. Once the rest of your blazer is completed, following the original instructions, slip-stitch your sleeve lining to the rest of the lining at the armscye.
