Handkerchief Skirt A handkerchief pointed-hem skirt is flattering to all, but especially for short-legged people because the points break up that horizontal hemline. No pattern is needed to make this skirt style. It is a simple block layout. One easy way to get that effect is to hem two squares of fashion fabric, each having four points (called a “handkerchief” hem) and layer them for an eight-pointed look. Experiment with swatches of opaque and transparent fabrics as you design and discover what happens when you overlap two layers of the same colour or harmonizing colours. The top layer could be trimmed shorter than the under layer for a tiered look and the hemline could be decorated with flat braid trim or fringe, if desired. You will need: 2 ½ yds. of fashion fabric, 45″ wide1 yd. of waist band elastic, 1″ wideCoordinating thread10 yds. of flat ribbon braid (optional) The size of the circular opening should be just big enough to pull over your hips, and can then be tightened with elastic. Like this:

Du fil et mon...: Jupe porte-feuille réversible Il fut un temps où je me promenais sur Dawanda et autres sites regorgeant de merveilles, je bavais devant certaines créations ... Mon regard s'est posé de nombreuses fois sur cette jupe "Kate" et sa superbe boutique Moondeval. Et puis, voilà qu'un jour, cette création me revient à l'esprit et vu que mes dix doigts commencent à maîtriser les points droits et autres, je me suis dit que cela pourrait se faire... Il a fallu comprendre le système ... Big bazar ... par-terre et dans ma tête ! "Oui, mais comment c'est possible de voir ce tissu entièrement alors que, Ah oui, il y a une attache qui se glisse via une boutonnière et puis .. ah d'accord ! Première pose d'oeillets... pratique et à refaire !

Make a Dress from Scratch in 15 Minutes! Today I'm going to teach you how to make a stylish convertible dress in just fifteen minutes. Really. It requires only four seams, and looks deceptively simple before you put it on; the success of the dress lies in the way you wrap the ribbon around your body. This project is easy enough for almost anyone to do - all you need to know is how to sew in a straight line. I used jersey material for my dress, but most fabrics with some stretch will work. Experiment with different types and colors of ribbon to create even more looks. 1) Cut two rectangles. 2) Stitch the hem (optional). 3) Create a casing for the ribbon. 4) Put the front and back together. 5) Thread the ribbon through the casing. And believe it or not, you’re done! Faith Towers is a creative media artist in Boston. Tagged : sewing, Craft, How-To, clothing, fashion, video, fabric, DIY

Umbrella Skirts Like designing your own styles to dress in but not skilled with complex stitching or comfortable with creating new patterns? From their shapes and size to their scale and appearance, skirts and umbrellas have a lot in common – except, perhaps, that when it comes to an umbrella the interior is designed to be seen publicly and thus is as carefully considered and crafted as the exterior … whereas, well, looking up a skirt … that might get you in trouble. But seriously: used umbrella material is a perfect choice in many regards to upcycle into a skirt, dress, other easily-planned piece of refab clothing, as designer Cecilia Felli discovered during her creative umbrella-to-skirt upcycling experiments. Moreover, since umbrellas are well known for breaking down, this provides a simple do-it-yourself way to take advantage of something that frequently falls apart. Umbrellas come in all kinds of colorful, creative and unique patterns that convert readily into skirt material for women or girls.

Summer of Skirts - Anthropologie Ruffled Skirt Tutorial Here it finally is - the anthropologie inspired skirt tutorial! There are two ways to do this. One is to make the whole skirt yourself using a knit fabric, and the other is to take an existing pencil or slim a-line skirt you already have and add the ruffles to it. If you choose to do the latter, simply skip to the ruffle steps below. What you need: - About a yard of knit fabric, depending on your size (see step 1 for details). - Two contrasting fabrics, about 1/4 to 1/8 each. I made this skirt have a half lining to it because the knit was so thin. Step 1: Measure around the widest part of your hips. I'm sorry I didn't get pictures of this part. Step 2: Mark where your length measurement of the skirt ends (so you should have a mark between the extra lining fabric you added and the actual length you want your skirt to be). Step 3: You might want to curve the top of the skirt, depending on where you want your skirt to sit. Step 7: Next is another partway ruffle!

The Shirt Skirt 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 developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. To determine what shirt size you should get, just make sure it will go around you. So, lay your shirt out flat, and whack it off right under the sleeves. I like to use thread the same color as my fabric. **If you don’t know how to shirr, check out some online tutorials or videos. Now, I break a rule of shirring. And that’s it!
