Summer of Skirts - Waistband Bow Skirt tutorial

Summer of Skirts - Waistband Bow Skirt tutorial
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. As always, if you have any questions at all or if I didn't explain things well enough, leave a comment and I should get back to you within the day. Or, send me an email! Oh, yeah, and I almost forgot - I'll be giving this skirt away to celebrate my 100 followers. What you need:- The measurement of around your waist where you want the skirt to sit. Step 1: Cut your fabric.First, for the waistband and tie: Decide how long you want your ties to be (I made mine the same as my waist measurement for simplicity). For the skirt, we're going to be using the same pieces that we did for the elastic A-Line skirt, so cut your main skirt panels out following steps 1-6. Here are the pieces (including the interfacing, not including the sleeping dog) you should have: Step 3: Next, open the folded strip, wrong side facing you. And all the way: Related:  Free sewing patterns: Women's clothing

Sew a Full, Gathered Skirt , Part One: Make Your Own Pattern! A lot of you went gaga over this taffeta skirt from Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing. Well, do I have a secret for you! This type of skirt is easy to replicate, no scrounging around for a vintage pattern required. This is part one of two in this tutorial. In this installment, you'll learn to make your own simple pattern for this skirt.This is a basic dirndl style skirt. First, you need a big rectangle for the skirt front and back. The skirt pattern piece will be 40" wide. Second, you need a long, skinny rectangle piece for the waistband. You want your waistband length to be your waist measurement plus one inch of ease. Now for the width, which will be 1-1/4" finished. So. Those are your two pattern pieces! My only disclaimer is that the measurements I'm using here were developed on my body. Next up, look for the second part of this tutorial, which will walk you through the construction of the skirt.

Summer of Skirts - Elastic A-Line Tutorial This skirt is great, because it is almost as easy as the 20 minute skirt but is more flattering and versatile. I plan on making many more of these! It's also worth noting that my current giveaway (enter to win if you haven't already!) dress features this type of skirt. What you need:-elastic - enough to fit around your waist; i prefer 3/4 inch for skirts-1 yard of fabric if you normally wear a small/medium, maybe a little more if you are large and up- a yardstick or newspaper or something with a long straight edge Step 1: Cut along the fold of your fabric, so you have two pieces with the cut fold on one end and the selvage on the other. Step 2: Now you have a little bit of math to do. Step 4: Then, put your yardstick/newspaper/whatever at each of these marks, so you have a diagonal across the fabric. Step 5: You should know have four pieces of fabric. Step 6: This part is optional, but it will make hemming a whole lot easier. Step 7: Sew the skirt panels together.

embroidery basics: looking back and instructions for lefties Over the last three months, I've been sharing my Embroidery Basics series. I don't have any more posts planned for this right now, but you never know...I may get some more together down the road. In the meantime, here's a little overview of the posts with links to each! And...someone asked me about instructions for lefties. I wasn't planning on it, and wasn't even sure how that would work.

Paperbag Ensemble Dress - Patterns Archive Please consult our size comparison table, our table of body measurements and the "Patterns" section of our FAQs before you download and print a pattern. Paperbag Ensemble Dress Design by jens / Pattern by Your Style Rocks! Finally, here is the pattern for the design that jens submitted as her winning entry in our "Sunday, lovely sunday" contest - we think it turned out great! The fabric we chose for the dress is rather stiff - if you want the paperbag effect to be more prominent you should look for a smoother, flowing type of fabric. Following jens' design, we combined top and skirt to make this a dress, but if you are an experienced sewer you could always modify the pattern to have separate pieces. Detailed sewing instructions for this pattern are available here. Download the pattern:

I can't say how much I love this dress. I saw the fabric at the fabric store and knew I had to make a dress. I love the shape of the skirt I wore it to a friends memorial because it reminded me of him and it was a huge hit. It's one of those thing you have in your closet that just makes you feel good when you wear it.<3Edit: Anyone interested the fabric is "Shibuki Dragon" The Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection 2007This rocks! Tute:Fabric: I used three yards and had some left over...I'm 6'0 so most people will need a bit less.Zipper: Whatever length you feel comfortable with. *To start measure from your waist (bellybutton or smallest part of your torso) to about how long you want the skirt of your dress to be and add an inch. Fold in half and snip the parts that are a little uneven so you have a nice looking slope. This is the basic shape you want to cut out for the dress top. Measure the widest part of your bust and cut your piece that long. Close up. Sew across.

Upcycle: T-shirts to Summer vest tutorial I love to spice up dresses and jeans with long summer vest. In my last visit to Target I found a few very cool and super cheap items, I already showed you what I did with this dress. So now I wanted to show what I did with two T-shirts, I also used a little piece of lace for the back, but you don’t need to use it if you don’t like lace. I really liked that the T-shirts were very soft and a thin material, thinner than normal cotton T-shirts. Do you like it? This was a very cool and not so complicated project, I recommend you to measure your back because in my case I ended up liking the back a little bit more tight than the full width of the back shirt, that is why I gather the extra material in the lace, as you can see on the pictures of the back, so before you finalize the back try it on and make sure you are comfortable with the width. I love how it looks with a belt on, it’s almost like a very thin cardigan =] * This tutorial is provided for personal, non-commercial use only.
