Peplum T-shirt DIY Fashion
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!

Easy DIY Lace Sleeve Tank Top Fashion Years ago I used to make little lingerie/pajama sets of tanks and underwear with ruffles – you can see some of them here, along with a DIY for the ruffle boy shorts & bikinis… but I always used ribbed wife-beater style tank tops rather than spaghetti strap tanks. I’ve had this pretty vintage lace trim I found at a thrift shop lying around for ages. I pulled the $3 tag off just the other day as I was prepping for this DIY. What You’ll Need… * Cotton spaghetti strap tank top* Lace trim about 6inches wide * Needle/Thread/Pins/Scissors Steps… * Beginning about an inch or two from the end of your lace trim, pin the front of the lace down and along the strap of your tank. * Hand stitch or machine sew your lace to your strap. * Cut the excess lace trim. * Overlap one edge of lace over the other then hand stitch your ends together creating a circle {not flat as shown above} * The lace sleeves will stick straight out when lying flat. Voila! Have Fun!

beltmaking 101 Finally–the long-awaited beltmaking tutorial! way I make my fabric-covered belts has been learned from a mix of trial-and-error and vintage manuals. The supplies are simple, and making a simple pass-through belt is quite easy. I have, however, included instructions for how to add a pronged buckle to a belt and add eyelets. I hope you enjoy, and as usual feel free to ask any questions in the comments! Supplies: 1″ wide stiff belting (available at JoAnns), 1/4 yard fabric at least 45″ wide, buckle for 1″ belt (see sources at the end), pattern paper, thread, scissors, ruler, pins. Begin by measuring your waist and adding 6″ to 8″ inches to the length (I tend to err on the side of more, especially for a belt using a pronged buckle). Cut the belting the length of your waist plus the extra. Using the paper pattern, cut one layer of your fabric. Fold the fabric around the belting, wrong sides out. Gently work the seam to the center of the belting width, and press seam open.

I’ve been seeing these tank+patterned skirt all over the place lately, but frequently they were too short or too short-waisted for my particular proportions. After some googling, and studying the really excellent skirt tutorial and t-shirt dress tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff and the skirt with pockets tutorial at Freshly Picked, I decided that even my fairly rudimentary sewing skills could handle this project. And since I celebrated my height yesterday for Dress Your Best week, it seems appropriate to post a sewing project prompted by my need for a longer-than-in-stores dress.

Watermark Tee by Sweet Verbana Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today. It just so happens to be my first guest post and I'm still a little shocked that it's here at Ucreate, one of my favorite blogs! A little bit about me.. I'm from a little town called Keller, Texas. I'm a junior at Texas A&M University (whoop!). I'm working on my education degree and expect to be an elementary school teacher in just two short years. When I'm not busy studying for classes, I love to sew. I just started blogging in May and have already met all kinds of wonderful women, I hope you'll stop by and say hi too!

Materials: Elmer's Blue Gel Glue (it must be the blue gel, white won't work) Fabric Dye (RIT is my tried and true brand) A white cotton Tee, Tank, Dress etc. Tutorial: If you're unfamiliar with Batiking, it's a method of dyeing fabric in which you create a design with a dye- resist.

Fashion DIY: Furry Boots on Cambio It's winter here at Fashion DIY, so we are showing you how to make the hottest winter trend - furry boots! From Juicy Couture to Fendi, this must-have look is all over the runways and the best part of this trend is you can get two stylish looks out of one pair of shoes. You won't need much, just: a pair of ankle booties, a half a yard of faux fur, a hot glue gun, scissors, and a ruler. First, put the booties to the side to make sure they don't get in the way. Then, take the fur and cut two equal pieces - one for each shoe (make sure to measure around your ankle so that it fits). Next, take your two socks, and cut off the toe end of them. Take one piece of fur and one sock, and hot glue down one end of the fur onto the sock. Once the hot glue has dried, cut off the remainder of most of the sock below the fur (if there is enough to trim off). Now slip your foot into the sock and pull it up to your ankles. Voila!

The Future of Social Media in Journalism This series is supported by Gist. Gist provides a full view of the contacts in your professional network by creating a rich business profile for each one that includes the most news, status updates, and work details. See how it works here. The future of social media in journalism will see the death of “social media.” That is, all media as we know it today will become social, and feature a social component to one extent or another. But more importantly, these social tools are inspiring readers to become citizen journalists by enabling them to easily publish and share information on a greater scale. Collaborative Reporting Reporting has always in some ways been a collaborative process between journalists and their sources. This requires a shift in the mindset of journalists, who are used to deciding what news is and how it is covered, produced and distributed, said Alfred Hermida, professor of integrated journalism at the University of British Columbia.
