So I made this!!
- at normal body shape and about 170 cm body size you need 180cmx150cm fabric.
- sewing machine and utensils
- bar of soap
- measuring tape
Step 1: Measure
The dress comes to just above the knees.
best to measure:
- chest circumference
- height of upper body
- circumference of hips
- from hip to just before the knees
Step 2: Draw and Cut Out
Step 3: Stitch Up
Fix the material with needles and mark it, then sew it.
After that cut the out-standing material.
Step 4: Neckline
Step 5: Back
IMPORTANT! The stretch band must be fully extended, when it move in, it should be slightly take the fabric at the same time with it. Than sew both together.
Step 6: Shoulder Straps
At the widest point (in the middle), it is 2 cm wide at the narrowest (at both end) 1cm.
Step 7: Skirt
!!!The skirts are twice as long as hip width, to make the wave pattern!!!
Both parts get below around it a small 1 cm rim.
Sew both ends together and pull a cord(as long as hip-width) through above. Now you can, with some skill, generate the wave pattern.
Sew both parts together, the upper about 5cm overlap in the lower.
Step 8: Finishing
I have made from the rest fabric a ribbon for the hip.
At the end you can still attach your initials or something like that.
