This is a great way to make a little something to wear in the summer. It's fairly easy (though does require basic sewing skills), cheap, and quick to make! I got my fabric in the sale and overall the whole thing cost less than £3!
I made mine in a floral print, but I think it would look great in a lightweight denim or plain cotton too! Have fun and experiment with different ideas:)
(Mine turned out a bit shorter than I'd intended, so add a little extra length onto yours if you'd prefer a longer top!)
Step 1: You will need...
- ½ yard of fabric
- 4 - 6 buttons I used 5
- cotton thread matching or contrast
- 2 - 4 sheets of A3 paper if you can't get hold of that you'll need 4 - 6 sheets of A4 paper
- measuring tape
Step 2: Taking measurements...
So for this we're going to need 3 main measurements: Waist - bust - back
Using a flexible measuring tape , record your 3 lengths in inches.
