Folded Miniskirt Tutorial

Folded Miniskirt Tutorial
Difficulty: Intermediate. It's based on the Drapedrape dress no 7, and it has the same 'what am I looking at here' feel to it. At one point you'll think, 'what a mess' and then it just clicks and you have a beautiful skirt. This click does not seem to happen with everyone, showing from the comments. If you're not sure about it: wait for the pattern! Fabric: One meter/yard is more than enough. Tools: Nothing fancy, just pins, maybe chalk, ruler, scissors. Step 1: Pattern pieces & measurements The pattern pieces for this skirt are so easy, you can draw your own right on the fabric. 1) front I used my measurements as an example: 100 cm. 2) back The width of the back will then be ([measurement]/2)-10, which is 40 cm for me. 3) lining The lining will have the same width as the front piece (60 for me), but half of the length, which is 33,5. We are working with a few centimeters of excess fabric, so if the pieces are a bit off here and there during the assembling, don't worry.

Giant Felt Flower Tutorial PATTERN (Free) One of the things I love about hairpieces is you can make them anywhere…. well, anywhere they sell felt. You should have seen me trying to describe “felt” to the fabric guys in Timor, that was hilarious. But in most places it is cheap and readily available as is a glue gun (I got a cute toile printed one yesterday). I made this flower right before we left Utah. Um, no I did not crochet that awesome hat!

Happy friday I won this 1940's pattern on e-bay today! It's probably much better for me than the last one I wrote about (and made a toile for), it's much more grown up and reminds me of the blouse I made using McCall 6520, that I really like. Gathers below the shoulder-yoke, darts around the waist, and shoulder pads.

The Socialite Skirt 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. Want to make one?
