Polka Dot Cottage: I like my skirts fast and cheap: a tutorial Posted April 14th, 2008 by Lisa So, I went ahead and did it.

Friendship Bracelets Macraméd friendship bracelets were all the rage when I was growing up in the eighties. All the girls at my school would obsessively make them for one another in a dizzying variety of colors, widths, and patterns. It's amazing, thinking back, that such young girls could make such beautifully intricate accessories. I, of course, tried my hand at making them as well. Fast forward 20 years: Purl Soho started carrying DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss in every conceivable color (including fluorescents! Making friendship bracelets is a surprisingly easy craft, and best of all, in the end you'll have a bunch of cute summer bracelets to give to your pals. Materials Since this is such a free form enterprise the amount of colors of DMC embroidery floss you get is really up to you. Please not that the fluorescent thread is slightly thicker than the regular DMC floss. Beginning To begin, pick out your colors. For patterns use a doubled length of thread cut each color to a length of 72-inches. The Left Knot

"victorian" skirt how to I thought that all you that sew would perhaps appreciate my skirt tutorial :) So I thought that I would share my how to for this quite easy sewn skirt in taffeta that I made for a friend of mine, it is a two layer skirt with strings so that you can tie up and drape the panels as you wish. This is a bit simplified, On the original skirt the top of the skirt was lined with satin so it was not completed in the exact same way as in this tutorial, but trying to explain that whole deal was to time consuming to be worth it. Material you will need:Fabric: Of your choice, around 2 times the length of your skirtA zipper: I use a hidden zipper because I think it looks better, but a ordinary one is just as good.String: The length of your drapes and a little more *2*6 (you chose one can both have it the whole way up on the skirt or just half, or something similar) I use cotton string 0,5 cm (0,2 inches) thick. We are staring with the overskirt, the first thing we do is to attach the zipper.

Pleated skirt (with instructions) I made up another skirt on the weekend, this time from scratch: I have been seeing these pleated skirts everywhere, and I wanted to make one myself. If you’re smarter than me, you can probably find a pattern that tells you how to do this, but I have a weird aversion to patterns. First, I cut a large square of fabric for each piece. If you are unsure how to make pleats, you basically just sew in seams. Then I did the same thing to the other piece and sewed the side seams together, leaving about 6″ on one side for a zipper. Then I sewed in the zipper. I added the waistband by creating a kind of bias tape strip. That is used for a hook and eye closure.

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. 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. Cut 2 squares of fabric doubled the finished length. Place template in center of square and trace out. * TIP: Increase or decrease the circle by 1/8″ to change the overall total circumference measurement by 1/2″. Like this: Like Loading...

Tumbler Skirt Tutorial I came up with the Tumbler Skirt. First, I want to show you how I cut the tumbler blocks. The light in my kitchen was awful that day, so excuse the crap-tacular photos. Then I gave it a quick press with the iron. My tumbler die looks like this: I’m going to place my fabric right on top of the outline you can see vaguely. Then I put my cutting mat on top. The verdict on cutting 6 layers of fabric at once? If you want to make your own Tumbler Skirt, you’ll need to measure the waist of the intended wearer, and round up to the nearest multiple of 3”. You’ll need double that number for your 2nd tier. You’ll need double the 2nd tier number for your 3rd tier. And so on and so on and so on. My top tier was 9 tumblers. Sew the blocks for each tier together (1/4” seams), small sides up. The finished bottom width on each tumbler is 6”, aka double the finished top width. Install your zipper and have the wearer try it on. Have the wearer try it on again. It’s super twirly, too.

7 Types of Corporate Outfit Styles in 2016 | Sir N Maam Blog Does it really make a difference if you love your office or not? I guess ‘Absolutely no’ because the office is almost an inseparable part of a lot of lives. And for girls, the office is not just a place for their professional aspirations; it is also a place for them to showcase their true fashion sense. While, some of the working women wear long ethnic designer Kurtis to the office, the others prefer trousers and shirts for the office. However, the worst part of the office wardrobe is that it cannot include everything from the world of women clothing that makes it a little boring to dress up for the office. So to help you out, here is a list of 7 types of outfit styles for a perfect corporate look in 2016. The Comfortable Pants Well, the comfortable pant with designer ladies shirts is one of the most trendy office wears from a very long time.

Dress Tutorial by ~LauraTolton on deviantART Tiered Skirt Tutorial : : Kuky Ideas I made another skirt for Isabelle using 3 Peas tiered skirt tutorial. She no longer has her blog so I asked her permission to post her tutorial here. Supplies needed: Fabric: a total of 1 1/2 to 2 yards of cotton of your choice (plenty for girls’ sizes), for a lady’s skirt you will have to do some simple math based on the dimensions of the strips we calculate in a bit; I’d say 2 1/2 yards should be plenty, but don’t hold me to that! NotesAll seam allowances are 5/8″.The things I did differently are in red. Step 1: Measure the waist and hips (in inches) of the intended wearer. For example: peri has a waist measurement of approximately 20″ and the finished skirt should be about 13″ long. A=20 B=4.5 (after rounding up) Step 2: (sorry to bring algebra into the picture) (A x 1.5) + 1.5 = _____ “C” Again, you can round your answer a little, this is not an exact science. Example: C=31.5 Step 3: You will cut 2 strips to make the top tier. C divided by 2 = ____ width of each strip Sewing the Skirt 1. 2.
