How to make an Advent calendar dress.

Step 1: Step 1: Materials List

-Scissors

-Electric Iron

-Rule

-Pencil

-Needle pins

-Pattern paper

-Dress form

-yarn

-Burlington x 1 x 1.40meter

-Coton x 1 x 0.25 meter

-Tulle x 1 x 0.25 meters

-Satin band x 4,50 meters

-Wooden pearl x24

-Number charm

-Zipper

Step 2: Step 2: the Pattern

The dress is composed in 28 elements:

-2 middle front

-2 middle back

-24 fabric pocket

The dress: You can take a dress to do the pattern or buy a pattern of a tunic dress. You can also do the pattern with a dressform (draping method) or just with your measurments (flat-patternmethod ).


The fabric pocket: To make the pattern, you just have to draw a rectangle of 22 x 8cm.

Step 3: Step 3: Sewing the Dress.

After cutting the fabric, I sew all the panels of the dress except the middles back.

-The middle front (photo 1)

-The sides and the shoulders of the dress (photo 2)

-Fix the zipper to the dress (middle back).

Step 4: Step 4: Make the Fabric Pocket

To make the fabric pocket, I fold the pocket tops (photo 1). I fold in half and i sew the sides of the pocket (photo 2 and 3). After i return this (photo 4) and i made two stitching on the top of the pocket (photo 5).

Then I inserted a satin ribbon with a needle between the two seams (photo 6), then I introduce the wooden pearl and I tie the ribbon (photo 7 and 8).

Now the pocket fabric is finished.

Step 5: Step 5: Sew the Pockets on the Dress

I fix the pockets (Except the 24th pocket that will serve as collar ) on the dress and I sew the number charms on the pockets. Now the dress is finished. It only remains to fill the pockets :)
