How to Easily Gather Fabric: A Sewing Tutorial Years ago I learned a really easy way to gather fabric and I wanted to share it with you. For those of you who have sewn for years I know this will be nothing new, but for other this may be a great time saver for you.
Greetings Crab-eating Macaque with those super long tails, I can totally see why you prefer skirts instead of trousers. I always wished I had a tail. They seem so expressive.
Special Sunday greetings you naked molerats! Since you’re so naked, I thought you might want to make yourselves some nice little circle skirts. And perhaps, like me, you find yourself with little mole rat patterns just a touch on the small side.
I really hope you aren't going to kill me...but this is probably the one week out of the whole competition where I do not have a complete tutorial. The dress was just so tailored to fit my daughter exactly, that in the time allotted to create the design, I just couldn't do it all. But there is hope!
15th April 2011 Thanks for all your lovely feedback on my DIY side split dress . This is the tutorial a lot of you have been asking for – the side split dress with wrapped bodice.
July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana , I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing .
I taught a class a few weekends ago to the girls in my Relief Society on how to make my t-shirt dresses . I created a handout with step-by-step instructions, and showed them how to cut out and attach each of the pieces. I created this dress in the class, and figured that I would share it with you all as well. Since we are now in full fledged winter mode, I decided to use a long-sleeve black top, and paired with with some gray linen I picked up at the LA fabric district. I added some ties to get a more fitted look around the waist. I know I've posted some tutorials for these dresses before, but I think this one is a little more comprehensive.
I stepped even further out of my comfort zone with this one. This is the first time I have made an actual dress, without taking the top from an existing shirt. (unless you count my Laurel project when I was 16. But lets be honest, my mom did all the work.) I used every single last scrap I had left of this awesome purpley-pink striped knit that I made my cardigan out of.
Many of you have probably already seen this tutorial on Ucreate , but for those of you who haven't seen it, here is a tutorial for my Pinwheel Skirt. Enjoy! The Pinwheel Skirt Lets get started….
I promise this will be my last time using blue and white striped fabric for a while. I just had enough left over from my Nautical Dress to whip this baby out. I decided to make the waistband on this skirt stretchy. It is just nice to be able to pull it on with a shirt and go. It's a lot more casual, which is nice for lounging around, soaking up the last few days of the summer sun.
This skirt didn't turn out quite as planned. I didn't intend for it to be so... cupcake-y. And I guess by that I mean poofy. Part of the reason why the top is so puffy is because I used muslin for the whole thing. If you want to avoid that, get some cotton gauze for the top part or an equivalent fabric. Anyway, here it is - the cupcake skirt!
Here it is - finally! A swingy red skirt just in time for the 4th of July. Sorry it took so long to get this tutorial up - moving and internet problems delayed me.
We’ve recently received several requests for a turban DIY and so, your wish is our command . . . Before you start, tie your hair in a bun or ponytail. Fold a large square scarf in half into a triangle.
