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!

Delusions of Grandeur: DIY Tulle Skirt Tutorial "A store-bought belt can obscure even the sloppiest of home-sewn waistbands." ~Ancient Chinese proverb As promised, here is the tutorial for the tulle skirt I sewed for Thanksgiving! Credits: My inspiration for this skirt came from a skirt in Anthro's winter line, and from this Etsy seller. What you'll need (total cost of materials was approximately $30): 1. 2. 3. 4" satin ribbon for waistband. 1 yard. 4. 5. Steps: 1. *Note - pleating each layer individually will result in a very full skirt (like mine). 2. 3. 4. Then, you will sew each layer onto a piece of scrap fabric (I used some of the excess liner fabric) that is the same length as your waist measurement, and is approximately 3" wide. 5. Once your circle skirt liner is sewn, it will look something like this: 6. *Note - I didn't have ribbon at this point, so I had to use a strip of satin with unfinished edges that unraveled like crazy. 7. And voila! .... THE END. ...and should all else fail, I'll just leave these here ...

How To Make A Tutu - The Ribbon Retreat Blog Tutus are great for so many occasions! I made this one in particular for a newborn baby girl. I wanted something small and poofy for her baby pictures. There are so many different ways to make a tutu, and generally which way you choose can depend on it’s use. I tried a lot of different ways and found this way to be the best for a really full tutu and a good mix of colors. Ready? Supplies: Tulle – One spool each of whatever colors you need. First, measure, cut, and sew your elastic. If you have the baby/child there with you, measure the baby/child. You can sew the elastic by hand or machine. Next, find something to hold the elastic while you tie on the tulle. I used a hanger, but you can use anything such as your thigh, a cylinder, just make sure not to stretch the elastic too much. Now it is time to cut! For this newborn tutu, I used three different colors of tulle. Paris Pink Rosette White I used a little over half of each spool. I cut each strip at 16″. Now for tying! Now for the bow! But first!

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.

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!

» DIY: Tank Dress with Pockets! academichic At long last, I present a tutorial for the tank dress I made a few weeks ago before the end of the semester blindsided me. 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. Supplies: a tank top2 yards or so of patterned fabricscraps of a coordinating fabric for pocketsmatching threaddisappearing fabric pen or chalk Steps: 1. 3. 4. Pin and cut out a pair. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. A note of warning. I can imagine so many fun variations on this.
