To create this easy to make, but effective shirt or blouse using Paper Dienamics plaids papers, you will need the items below.
Take your patterned paper and cut down to an A5 (5.83 x 8.27 in) size - or if making a large card, leave slightly larger.
Fold down the centre of your paper as shown
Un-fold your paper and then re-fold both the left and right edges to the centre fold as shown
From around half way down, create lapels on both sides as shown
Cut into the lapels on both sides as shown about 2cm from the top (this creates your sleeves)
Re-fold the bottom half of the sleeves back to the centre
Fold the bottom of the shirt up so that there is a 1cm overhang at the top
Cut into the overhang on both sides about 5mm. Be careful not to cut too far as this is the collar for your shirt!
Fold the two overhang sections towards the centre of the shirt to create a collar. (you may wish to add a ribbon tie here)
If you have added a tie, you may wish to add a little glue to the underside of your collar to keep it in place.
The finished shirt! Add any embellishments to your shirt such as gem buttons or even a paper pocket!
