What you need.

1- Lycra
2- Satin
3- Sewing Machine
4- Scissors

To know how much fabric you need measure your waist line and add about 10 cm more. The width of the fabric measured half meter.
The same for the top, first you have to know the measures.

Good Luck ;D

Step 1: First Step

  1. Measure your bust line for the top.
  2. Mark on the fabric
  3. Now measure the lenght of your bust and double it. In my case is 15 cm and the double will be 30 cm.
  4. Mark on the fabric and cut.

Step 2: Second Step

  1. Fold the fabric and join the edges
  2. Pin it and sew
  3. On the part you just sew, now sew again the elastic be carefull ;)

Step 3: Third Step

This part we gonna do the bottom part of the dress.
  1. Fold the fabric and join the edges on the opposite side of the fabric.
  2. Pin it and sew
  3. Then sew the elastic for the waist.
To know how much fabric you need measure your waist line and add about 10 cm more. The width of the fabric measured half meter.

Step 4: Fourth Step


  1. Attach the top with the bottom (as you can see in the pictures)
  2. Pin it together and sew.
  3. Fold 1cm the bottom of the dress and sew, it gives a clean touch.
And then you are done!! You have a new dress ;)

    Hi! Love your videos. Just wondering, what is it that you use to mark the outline of the clothes? (It worked like a pencil.)

    Fabric chalk or pencil. You can easily go to a local craft store and find one. :)
