It's really cold in Paris right now , So I thought it would be a good idea to show you how to make a super warm

and cosy turtle neck sweater dress . It is super easy to make.

I hope you'll enjoy it. It was inspired by some Pinterest posts.


This dress requires :

- A kind of wool or knit fabric

-hemming web

-cutting tools

-pins

-measuring band

Step 1: Pin & Cut

First thing first put your pattern on your fabric on fold and cut each pieces.

I ad five centimeter extra at the bottoms of each pieces because of the hemming web.

You should end up with two sleeves, one back and one front.

Make sure to surge or zigzag stich all of the because the fabric fridge out.

Step 2: Sew the Shoulder

Put the front piece above the back piece.

Pin and sew only one shoulder because we still don't know the turtleneck mesurement.

Step 3: The Turtleneck

Measure all around the neck with your measuring band.

In order to make the turtleneck piece report that measurement to a piece of fabric on fold .

The thickness is about seven inches with the fabric on fold.

Don't forget to surge the turtleneck piece after the cutting process.

It supposed look like a rectangle.

Fold your rectangle in half and sew it.

The press the seam open and fold it again.

Use some pins juste to make sure that the turtleneck does not move.

Make sure that the turtleneck seam match with one of your shoulder seam before you attach the turtleneck to the sweater.

Step 4: The Sleeves & Sides

Here you ll need to pin the sleeves to the armholes.

I advise you to pin the middle and the corners first.

Always take you time when it comes to sleeves !

The sew the sides of your sweater including the sleeves by pinning the middle and the corners first.

Step 5: Hemming Process

For the last step you need to pin the hemming web to the Bottom and each wrist.

The part is very tricky , so take your time and be careful.

Iron them down when you've done !
