How much fabric do you need for your diy puff shirt pattern?
These fabric requirements apply to fabrics with a width between 140 and 150 cm. In the case of fabrics with different widths or designs (striped, plaid, etc.), pattern placement may need to be revised. Make sure you buy some extra fabric for your project in advance so you don't have to make last-minute trips to the store.
A Fabric's Contraction Is Crucial!
Washing your fabric prepares it for cutting. In this way, you will preshrink the fabric and remove excess colouring. This method ensures that your garments remain true to size after being sewed and won't shrink after washing.

Sewing the sleeve
1. Apply fusible interlining on the wrong side of the cuff pieces.
2. Take 1 piece of cuff and bend the top part 1 cm inwards, wrong side to wrong side, and press. fig 1
Place the top and under cuffs right sides together and sew them on the edges and bottom. fig2.
The seam allowance is cut narrow, the corners are cut obliquely. The cuffs are turned and pressed.
3. The sleeve slits are cut according to the marking. Sew the bias tape on the sleeve slit: Place the bias strip to the sleeve slit edge, right side to right side. Sew the bias to the edge using the edge of the machine foot as a guide. Wrap the folded edge of the bias to the wrong side of the garment. Place the folded edge to the sewn line and topstitch at 0.1 cm. fig 3
4. Sew the side seam of the sleeve, right sides together. Press and overlock the seam. fig 4
5. Take the sleeve and sew one row of gathers at 0.5 cm and the second row at 1.5 cm on the bottom part. Sew at a great pace and leave long tails of thread for gathering. fig 5
6. Place the bottom of the sleeve that is going to be gathered to the top of the outer cuff, right side to right side. Gently pull on the two ends of the thread on the wrong side—the fabric will gather along the thread. fig 6
7. When all the gathers are in place, sew the sleeve and cuff together, using a 1 cm seam allowance. Press the seam gently
8. Turn under the seam allowance of the under cuff and pin in place around the cuff edge, taking care to insert the seam allowance inside the cuff. Make sure the two leading front edges of the cuff are symmetrical.
9. Use a flat top stitch to secure the under cuff at the cuff edge. Sew at 0.5 cm. fig 7
10. Place the sleeve into the armhole, right side to right side. Match the notches and the underarm seams. Pin from the sleeve side.
11. Sew the sleeve in the armhole at 1 cm from the raw edge, taking care to meet the notches. Press gently and overlock the seam. fig 8
12. Make 4 buttonholes on the upper side of the cuff at the point indicated by the pattern markings. Sew the buttons on the underside of the cuff. The size of the buttonholes depends on the size of the buttons used. fig 9

3. Trim the seam allowance from the under collar. Remove the surplus fabric at the corners. Turn the collar to the right side and press.
4. Sew at 0.5 cm the bottom of the collar, wrong sides together. (the top collar is slightly bigger than the under collar, so there should be a little difference between them)
5. Top-stitch the sides and outside edge using the edge of the machine foot as a guide. fig 2
6. Take 1 piece of collar stand and bend the outer edge 1 cm inwards, wrong side to wrong side, and press. fig 3.

8. Turn under the lower edge seam allowance on the under collar stand and pin in place around the neck edge, taking care to insert the seam allowance inside the collar stand. Use a flat top stitch to secure the under collar at the neck edge. Sew at 0.5 cm from the right side. fig 5
