Introduction: Lace Trim Sweater and Ribbon Back Dress

Create these two projects in 10 minutes!

Simple no sew way to revamp clothing in your closet.

Step 1: What You Need

***Watch above video for FULL tutorial***

Materials:

Sweater

Dress/Shirt

Scissors

Fabric Glue (or you could sew)

Lace

Satin ribbon

Clear nail polish

Step 2: Sweater - Cut and Glue Lace

If your lace is wide like mine, you can cut it in half. If not, buy just over double the width of your sweater.

Flip your sweater inside out.

Place lace trim with as much or little overhang as you desire.

Glue lace down and let dry for 72 hours.

Step 3: Dress - Create Open Back

Trace the desired size of scoop back neckline you'd like.

(You can also buy a scoop back dress/shirt and skip this step)

Cut along your chalk line.

Step 4: Dress - Attach Ribbon

Cut ribbon in half (you'll want each length to be half a metre or more).

Put fabric glue on one end and glue to the top inside of your open scoop back.

Repeat on opposite side.

Angle ribbon downwards when gluing.

Step 5: Dress - Finish Off Ribbon

Trim each loose end of ribbon to an angled point.

Take clear nail polish and line the cut on the ribbon you just made. (This will prevent fraying).
