Lace Ballet Skirt w/ Raw Edges DIY Fashion

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. If you want more of a mini skirt, a perfect circle would be more appropriate. * 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.

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. I actually wanted to be able to include it into the challenge, but alas, I just couldn’t fit it in. Oversized Cropped Tank or Vest DIY Fashion What you’ll need. . . * NOTE: as you wear it the edges will curl a little …which actually makes it look better for a cropped look, pull it back more or cut the center shorter * NOTE #2: instead of ribbon you can cut strips out of the left over t-shirt, shoe laces, lace, anything!

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! Basic Skirt Tutorial (Before It's News) Summer is coming and with the temperature rising my daughter is in need of some easy skirts to stay cool. A basic elastic waist skirt is the perfect solution and so quick to make. 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. I used the lace to create a repeating snakeskin grid across the entire tank.

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. I thought it would really be pretty with this blush tank and I love the turnout. A Femme’s Guide to Improvement: Make a Blouse! So I got an email from Jane last week, linking to this top: “The one I tried on was shorter and not sheer. Can you show us how to make it? It looks SO beautiful on and it's a fucking square with a hole in it, that's it. A square folded in half, a neck hole cut out, and two short seams on the sides to hold it in place. Does that make sense?

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.
