This article can be read in about 4 minutes.

This time, I’d like to introduce you to a continuous-sleeved type of Chinese clothing.

It is a Chinese blouse with a red flower pattern made by “flat cutting”.

Flat cutting is a method of cutting by drawing lines directly on the fabric without using a paper pattern.

This is why it is also called “direct cutting”.

It is a traditional Chinese cutting method.

There are no darts, no sleeves, and each garment is made from a single piece of cloth.

More fabric is used than in regular clothes. It is comfortable to wear without constricting the body.

When you wear the double-sleeved type, there will be natural wrinkles around the shoulders and under the sleeves, but it is very comfortable to wear.


Material & Color

  • Body: 100% cotton (made in Japan), off-white and red
  • Piping and China buttons: T/C broadcloth (35% polyester, 65% cotton), made in Japan. The color is dark red.
  • Decorative buttons: natural stone

It’s kind of nice when the slit arrows work.

The most time-consuming part is making the China buttons!

It takes five sets of stitches to make one blouse.

I wondered how many stitches I had to do. The loop width is 3 mm.
