Intro: DIY: Wrap Dress From Scratch
DIY Wrap Dress from Scratch!
Step 1: Drape Your Design
I used draping tape to create my design.
Step 2: Drape the Dress Form With Muslin
Drape and pin the muslin to the dress form. Then trace the draping tape with a sharpie.
Once you are done draping and tracing take the muslin off the dress form and add a half inch seam allowance to both pattern pieces. Put the muslin back on the dress form and mark notches, so that you will know where each pattern piece belongs.
Step 3: Cutting Time
Take the pattern pieces and place them on the fabric and cut them out. Cut 2 of the front of the dress and cut the back piece on the fold.
Step 4: Pin It Together
Sew the shoulders and sides together.
For the neckline, armholes and slit roll the edges once and then twice. Pin it and sew them down.
Step 5: Make the Belt Ties
Cut the fabric on the fold.
Cut 2 belt ties about 3 inches wide and whatever desired length.
Fold each individual tie in half, put right sides together and sew. Leave the edges open.
Grab a safety pin and use it to turn the belt ties inside out.
Sew the belt ties to the dress.
Step 6: Make the Belt Opening
I made a belt opening by leaving a measured space open in the side seam. Snip around the opening and pin it back. Then sew a square around it to secure it. Hem the bottom of the dress and boom you are finished!
Happy Sewing and God bless.
