Lace Ballet Skirt w/ Raw Edges DIY Fashion * 1 yard of lace fabric …unless you want it longer, then measure appropriately {I had an almost square piece of vintage ivory lace} * Matching thread * Ribbon {color & size & texture of your choice} * Scissors, pins, tape measure * This is a simple drawstring style skirt. * Cut edges off lace, and into a circle of sorts. I left the longer sides flat because cutting a full circle would have made the skirt shorter. * Lay out your lace and find the center. * Continue cutting a perfect circle. * Try on your skirt. * Using your ribbon to determine the size of your waist band {drawstring tunnel}, fold your center circle fabric over it and pin in place. * To continue creating your drawstring tunnel, you’ll have to notch the fabric. * This is the inside of your skirt * Hand stitch your drawstring tunnel flat in place. * Flip your skirt right side out and try it on. wearing: black leggings, old black lace printed tank, black blazer, Tiffany lock pendant/chain, Boutique 9 lace up pumps Have Fun!

How To Make An Easy Dress (For Cheap!) Two facts about me: I'm cheap. I love dresses. I wear dresses probably 6 days out of the week. It's not that I one day just decided to wear dresses to feel cute and girly. Back in November when I really started Talk2thetrees I kinda just wore pajama pants and sweat pants. Dresses are so comfortable, I can sit around the house and feel comfortable and cute. The only problem.. they are expensive! Here is a tutorial on a High Waisted Dress: For under 6 bucks! First you will need a ribbed tank top. I got mine from Walmart for 2.50 You could also use a t-shirt 3 yards of matching fabric. Clearance section is my favorite. Cut the tank top almost in half. (I cut mine a little too short.. oops!) For the bottom part of your dress take the fabric and wrap it around your waist about 1 and a half times, and cut in a straight line. I never measure, I never use patterns... Next you fold your fabric in half. You have kind of a big blocky rectangle skirt. (You are sewing the raw edges, not the bubble hem)

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!

Skinny Ties One of Ralph’s requests for his birthday was skinny ties. They are surprisingly hard to find — either too long or too expensive for a 13-year-old’s wardrobe. So a few weeks ago, I had an idea: I would buy some old fat ties at a thrift shop and take them to a tailor to have them altered. Brilliant, right? But then, of course, I forgot about the idea till 3 days before his birthday. At which point, I tried to rush and make it happen. But since I had the ties in hand, and since they only cost $1 each, I figured I’d try it myself. Here is the before shot. Here is the after shot: DIRECTIONS: 1) Turn your too-wide thrift store tie upside down. Keep un-stitching till you get to the skinniest part of the tie: 2) Pull the tie form fabric out of the lining (there is probably a real name for this, but I don’t know what it is). 3) Trim one side of the tie-form fabric. 4) If you traced it, then cut out the second side. 5) Your tie-form material should now look like a skinny tie. And that’s it!

I was even in my Sunday school class before all my little students, which almost never happens! :o) And since we had no plans after church, I took the opportunity to make this little scarf that popped into my head as I was making lunch. I intended to make it for myself, but I didn't have quite enough material from these two old, ill-fitting shirts of mine, so I made one for Paige! It was so easy. All you do is cut three strips, the same length, but each one a little wider. For Paige's, I made three 55" strips in 3", 4", and 5" widths. Then you lay them on top of each other. largest on bottom, smallest on top, and pin. Wind your bobbin loosely with elastic thread: Set your straight stitch to the longest length, and sew two rows, on either side of the middle strip, back-stitching at the beginning and end of each row. Ruffly! :o) I can't believe how quick it was! I can't wait to find a larger t-shirt to make one for me!

Tank Top DIY & How to Create a Snakeskin Print with Sharpie Stained Markers Fashion The people from Sharpie so kindly sent me their newest invention, the Sharpie Stained Fabric Marker and asked that I create something with it. I thought instead of drawing a picture of something specific, I would try to create a print using a stencil. Lace came to mind and when I did a test run with some leftover vintage lace from my ballet skirt DIY, I got a bit of a snakeskin print from it and was thrilled. * White t-shirt* A favorite tank top* Lace* Sharpie Stained Fabric Marker{they have no scent at all, unlike regular Sharpies and have a great long, paintbrush type tip.* Scissors* A paper bag or cardboard * Slide a paper bag or large piece of cardboard in between your shirt {so your markings stay on one side only}. * Flip it over and do the same on the back. * Carefully follow your pattern on each side and cut out your tank top. * Lay your lace on top of your tank and hold it taught. * It should look something like this. Have Fun! * Find all my DIYs here

craft blog : My Kanzashi Hairpin My Kanzashi Hairpin Since I first saw Kanzashi on CraftyPod, I've admired them. They are gorgeous! But now that I've had a chance to read the instructions in Kanzashi In Bloom and even make my own, I've found that they are simple and quick to make. I made this cute hairpin in about 15 minutes. These are the five 2-inch squares of fabric I cut to make my flower. These are my folded and trimmed petals. Next you string them on some thread. The hardest part is getting the flower to look right when you tie the thread. I picked a button from the tidbits Ester included in my Specky Surprise. To finish it off, I sewed a bobby pin to the back and stuck it in my hair. Love this post? SEE MORE POSTS ABOUT: other crafts 365 days. 365 items of clothing. 365 dollars

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!

Free Clothes Patterns Posted on | October 9, 2008 | 7 Comments I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size. Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. These patterns generally of three types. Skirts are very easy to make without a pattern. I came across a few patterns that didn’t fit into any other category, so I gave them their own. We normally assume underwear is too complicated or to time consuming to sew ourselves. Aprons can usually be whipped up in less than an hour. Shirts and dresses are much more complicated to make than skirts. Coats can easily be the most expensive piece of clothing in your wardrobe.
