tutorial: how to sew a simple maxi dress The Plan. Fabric. You will be making a maxi dress so buy fabric accordingly. I stand 5′ tall (I know, I know, I am tiny) and I needed 2.5 meters of fabric with a 45-inch width. Preparation and Cutting. Sewing. Don’t forget the banana. Instructions for making the rosettes are HERE. Large T-Shirt to Fitted Tee I have these two t-shirts that I love. They're soft, comfortable, and have good worn (and sentimental) designs on them. But, I never wear them for anything other than around the house because they are large men's t-shirts and look completely shapeless on me. Then I found this great tutorial on YouTube for how to make a big t-shirt a fitted shirt! - T-Shirt Surgery: How to Make a Shirt Fit So, while I was staying with my mom at her camper this summer (she lives & travels in an RV), I asked her to help me try it out. First, a before & after look at the t-shirt we did. So, here's how it's done. Start with a t-shirt you love that's just too big Turn the shirt inside out and lay a shirt that DOES fit you on top of it, lining up the collars so that you can be sure it is centered over your large t-shirt. Thanks to brianagayle for the video tutorial & tips! No time to make your own?

Lace for Days Skirt So, remember how 2 weeks ago I told you I had a new skirt tutorial? I am just now getting around to creating it, so sorry about the wait! I have had the lace for this skirt for about a year now (seriously), and have finally gotten around to making it. This idea has been in my head for a long time and it's nice to see if finally completed!(you can tell how long it took me to do, because my nail polish changes throughout the tutorial) I found this lace at Joanns and fell instantly in love. Want to make one? Lace for Days Skirt You will need: 1.5 yards of fabric. Step 1: Lay your pencil skirt on your pattern fabric/paper to create the pencil skirt pattern for the main structure of the skirt. You can do this directly onto your main fabric, but I used a grid fabric just to be safe. Make sure to note of where your darts are, if your skirt has any. Step 2: Cut out the front and back pieces of your skirt (these will probably be different sizes if one side has darts), and cut out 4 waistband pieces.
Embellish Knit Month: Day 6 A lot of you expressed questions about resizing sweaters. I mentioned briefly how to do that on day one but I didn't go too in depth. So today and tomorrow I'll be redoing sweaters by first showing you how to turn them into cardigans today and then tomorrow showing you how to resizing body and sleeves, nothing else. Today I found this Wet Seal sweater for $1.50 at Community Aid. So I turned it into a cardigan. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Fringe Top So I had this weird shapeless top/dress/long tank top(?) in my closet. The only thing I liked about it was the color. Not a fun top! I measured how long I wanted the remade top to be, I went for the cropped style, and cut off the bottom half. This is how it looked chopped off. Wearable, but still pretty boring. I took the bottom half and cut it up to make the fringes. I measured and marked where I wanted the fringes to go. And sewed them on one by one. Looks pretty cool. How to make a draped t-shirt This cowl neck top is quite easy to make. It has only four seams and you can create the pattern yourself. The cowl neck comes from making the neckline of the shirt wider at the front than the back – this extra fabric hangs down creating the drapey neckline. The folds in the sleeves come from extra fabric as well, which is added by angling the shoulder seam upward. You will need: Measuring tape ⅔ yard stretchy fabric (I used a cotton/lycra jersey) Matching thread Sewing machine Chalk (or pencil and large paper to make a pattern) Pins (optional) The first step in making this top is to measure yourself. 1. Before you start, wash your fabric the way you want to wash the finished top. I like to draw the pattern directly on the fabric with chalk, but if you prefer to make a paper pattern the steps are just the same. Drawing the pattern for the front: Beginning about 4 inches from the top of your fabric and 6 inches from the right side, draw a line 4 inches longer than your shoulder measurement.
MADE: TUTORIAL: the Circle Skirt I used to think that a gathered skirt was the easiest skirt to sew. But I may have changed my tune. A circle skirt is possibly even easier!….especially if you leave the elastic exposed. If you’ve ever made a poodle skirt before, it’s the same concept. Your fabric is cut in a circle, like a donut. Once you’ve created your pattern, you can whip up 4 skirts in an hour! Okay, let’s get started. What you need (for a little girl’s skirt): * about 1 yard of fabric* appx 3/4 yard of 2-inch wide elastic FABRICS to use:* Rayon* Polyester Charmuese* Simple Cotton* Thin Corduroy* Lightweight WoolMany fabrics will work for this project. ELASTIC:Wide elastic from fabric stores typically comes 2 inches or 3 inches wide; white or black in color. If you’d like to add a colorful twist to your skirt, check out our easy Tutorial for Dyeing Elastic HERE. Measure around your waist. PATTERN:This requires a bit of geometry but don’t worry, we’ll break it down for you. draw another 1/4 circle: Like this: Try it on,
Tooth Fairy Bags We thought we'd try to make the whole Tooth Fairy ritual a little more fun by making a colorful bag complete with a special tooth-shaped pocket for the baby tooth. The Tooth Fairy can take away the tooth and leave the loot in the bag. This is a really quick project. So quick that you might want to whip up a few in different colors for the different kids (and teeth!) Materials To make 1 3-inch x 3-inch bag: 1 piece Wool Felt in a bright color of your choice1 piece Wool Felt in EcruEmbroidery Thread in IvoryEmbroidery Thread to match your bright colored feltAt least 28-inches of a white cotton yarn (I used Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton in Bone)One Free Tooth Template, available here, downloaded, printed, and cut out. Cutting Trace the tooth template on the ecru felt and cut it out. Cut the bright felt into a 3-inch x 8-inch rectangle. Cut the yarn into two 14-inch pieces. The Top Hems Fold and pin each short side in 1/2 an inch towards the wrong side. The Tooth Sewing up the Sides
