Step 3: Dress Pattern

Here I attach a document with the templates.

Step 4: Confection: Skirt

-Overlay the equal pieces.

-Join the two pieces of 75x44 cm by the short side and sew the 2cm lace ribbon. (First pic)

-Now, join the 75x48 pieces by the short side, sew only 13 cm from one side first, then join this with the ribbon of the previous piece.

-Place the elastic ribbon on the waist and sew the other side at 13 cm equally.

- Make a hem in all the free edges of the cloth.

Step 5: Confection: Blouse Front

-Make the pattern on paper.

-Use the pattern to cut the piece of 42cm x 24cm, leaving seam allowance.

-Cut a facing, from the same cloth or cover cloth.

-Sew the 1.5cm lace ribbon on the outside of the cloth, distributed in five parts with approx. 5cm of separation.

-Sew the facing on the inside of the blouse and between these two put the straps. (Picture 1,2,3)

- For straps use the strip of 4cm by 50cm, fold and sew it.
- Turn the facings and iron.

Step 6: Confection: Blouse Back

-Use the piece of 70x24 cm and sew with elastic thread, make parallel lines with a separation of approx 1cm until the whole piece is completed, stretching the fabric very well, next iron (Picture 1-2)

-Sew the straps on the back of the blouse.

- Face the rights of front and back and close the sides.

Step 7: Last Step

- Join the blouse with the skirt, stretching both pieces very well before sewing. (picture 1-2)

- For the belt use the strip of 180x12 cm, fold it lengthwise in half and sew it.

- Sew the lace ribbon on the front of the belt. (picture 3-4-5)

Step 8: Finish!

Here we finish the whole process, it really is quite simple to do.

I hope you liked it.
