Third Prize in the
Easy and affordable DIY Wedding dress that can convert to different styles!
Lay your 3.5 meters of satin fabric (45" width) down for cutting. If you want a fuller dress, use the 60" width fabric with the same instructions.
Measure from your high waist (your belly button plus 2 inches upward) to the floor . Cut this measurement part from the fabric.This will be your bottom part of the dress.
Cut the remainder of the fabric into two pieces, lengthwise, for the top parts of the dress. These tie pieces are about 6 feet long so they can easily wrap around the body.
Fold each of the pieces lengthwise once and sew together the edges opposite of the fold. The finished pieces are like fabric tubes: one large tube as the skirt and the other two long tubes are the top pieces.
Have them right sides out.
Find the center fold of your skirt and pin your first top piece then on the other side, add your second piece- you can overlap these pieces slightly. Sew these two pieces on to the skirt part.
Fold the waist edge and sew all around, leaving a small opening to insert the white elastic (your waist measurement length.) Once the elastic is in, attached the elastic ends together then close the opening.
Hem the dress and the top ties and you are done!
The dress can be worn many ways and here are some examples.
We hope you will try this and have fun with all the different styles with the design.
