DIY. Crochet Trim Seam

DIY. Crochet Trim Seam
Cut side seams and sleeves off if you use a tshirt (here I used a tank). Sew front to back right sides together. Lay out and pin where you want the armhole to go. Top stitch new side seam leaving armhole open. I did this with fringe trim as well here. Related:  ClothArtesanías, manualidades, accesorios, Ropa

XL Mens Tee Sewn Into Dolman. Directions + Video Supplies: XL mens tee DIY intructions: Cut neckline scoop neckline, cut arms (as shown). Don't cut the shoulder seam, you will need the long width for the dolman shape. Gather the bottom hemline in a few inches to be snug on your waist (this is what changes the shape of the shirt). Make your curtains BLACKOUT CURTAINS (simplified version) Since moving to our new home over a month ago, I have had blackout curtains on my “to-do” list. And while waiting for those curtains to be made……I’ve had blankets and tablecloths hanging from the curtain rods. Eeek. I have finally begun making curtains for the kiddos room……and making them into Blackout Curtains. Nothing fancy……just a piece of Blackout Lining added to my curtains. It stays right in place and unnoticed…………unless you separate the fabric from the lining. Here’s the difference. The lining is added right up at the top of the curtains. And you’d never be able to tell from the front of the curtains. Would you like to make your own Blackout Curtains (a really simplified version)?? First of all, I bought my curtains from Ikea because I loved the fabric of these grommet curtains. So if you have existing curtains or if you’re making new curtains, you can simply add some blackout lining to the back of your curtains. This blackout fabric has 2 sides to it. Then sew it in place.

Lace T-shirt Refashion tutorial Well, hello fellow craft addicts! I’m thrilled to be visiting over here in Linda’s lovely space. I’m from over at the Crafty Cupboard, where I like to share my fun projects. (all of these lace-infused tops were found at ModCloth, my go-to-source for good knock-off ideas) I like to keep my shoulders and such covered, so that pretty much rules me out of the lace goodness without the undershirt beneath breaking up the loveliness. All you need to get the look is some stretch lace and a t-shirt (plus, you know, sewing stuff.). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. The great thing about a spruced-up tee is that it is suddenly OK for date night! And I already have the fixin’s for a few more of these shirts… I’m itching for a full-fronted lace shirt now! I’m so glad I got to hang with you today! Share and Enjoy Hi!

DIY draped skirt A while back I posted about this amazing DIY Burberry inspired skirt project that's been really popular among bloggers lately...AND since I've returned to my home-and-native-land of Canada I could finally get my hands on some second hand jewels, put my sewing machine to good use and (try to) recreate this lovely skirt. Three cheers for fun projects! Hip-Hip-Horray! I scoured the racks for some kind of plus size cotton jersey dress with enough fabric for the skirt and happened to lay eyes on this little...I mean LARGE fella'. The dress is made of a thick almost sweatshirt-like material in a nice dark grey color which is perfect for mixing and matching. Here's the dress before: Notice how my shoulders are defined to perfection. ...and here's what "this old dress" (wink nudge) turned into. It was a pretty simple project and didn't take much time to make...not to mention super comfortable and earth friendly! 1. 2. 3. 4. Happy sewing day everyone!

TUTORIAL: HOW TO SEW A BUILT-IN BRA (WITH CUPS!) : Daughter Fish How-Do-You-Do-Bardot Maillot (left), Bubblegum Top (right) For the past year, I’ve been sewing built-in shelf bras, with cups, into maillots (unitards), t-shirts, and tank tops. My original inspiration for this came from several vintage garments—a dress and bathing suit—that I wear regularly, which have built in bras. For me, there are several advantages to building a bra into a garment. Built in bras also just happen to be comfortable. A few other bloggers have asked me to share my technique. What I can say is that this tutorial is relatively easy, and you can do it on a home machine. Here’s how I do it: Tools I like to use a soft cotton-lycra blend knit (it won’t pill like rayon or bamboo knit), 1 inch wide elastic, and sew-in bra cups. The elastic should feel comfortable against your skin. When cutting out striped jersey on the fold, I line up my stripes and pin them before cutting out my pattern. Step 1: Cut the pattern pieces Cut out your front and back pattern pieces (3, 4).

Peplum T-shirt DIY seen with Kooba “Sabrina” bag, Guy & Eva necklace, Forever 21 Sunglasses and Rich & Skinny jeans ~ via flickr I have been DYING to make a cute peplum t-shirt for a few months now but just haven’t had a chance to. When I have an idea, if I don’t do it right away, it literally keeps bugging me until I do!! And I’ve had this idea since well before my floral print jeans DIY AND even before the Jeans & T outfit challenge. There are a number of ways to create this cute little peplum tee… which is basically just one large ruffle at the waist of the shirt. What You’ll Need… * Two white t-shirts: one fitted and one large or extra large* Sewing machine or Serger* Pins/thread/scissors, etc. Steps… * Try on your fitted t-shirt and pin or mark where you want your peplum to begin. * Lying flat, cut your larger, men’s t-shirt. * Cut it up one side seam as well. * Begin at the side seam of both shirts and make sure you finish at the side seam of both shirts, including the gathering. Voila! Have Fun!
