what makes it cute?? well I think the ric rac rose is sooo cute and that gives an added cute touch :-D
Step 1: Materials
over sized t shirt
ric rack ribbon
needle and general sewing equipment :-)
Step 2: Draw up your pattern
Step 3: Cut Up!
Measure the length from upper bust to waist...add 1" for sewing and cut up.
cut the rest up to form a rectangle for the skirt bit.
Step 4: Add Your Box Pleat!
...pleat till you get the measurement of 1 or 2" larger than your bust
tack and sew at both the top and bottom.
Step 5: The Skirt
Now spread open and sew the flap so that you may send a cord through.
Please check picture!
Place your top near the skirt...place the cord area on either side...now make large box pleats so that the skirt will come to the width of the top...pin away!
Now place the right side of top and skirt facing each other and join both by sewing around.
Step 6: Raunching up!
Cut a cord cut from the extra pieces of T shirt you have left around.
pass cord through the cord flap and out of the hole at top...secure with a know to a washer...thought that gives an extra touch :-)
Now hem the bottom and make sure you secure the cord while you hem it!
Ooops forgot...add elastic to the top so it would not fall off ! haha
Well...what do you think??
want to add cute??
follow next step :-)
Step 7: Ric Rac Rose Embllishment!
get your ric rac ribbon and interlock it to itself...sew along the edge and secure.
now roll up till you have the desired size...hot glue at the back...secure felt or fabric leaves and hot glue too.
For hair embellishment attach to a clip !
There you have it!
some thing cute to add to your dress and something cute for a little princess too!
