Step 1: First Step

Fold by length the fabric, measure about 42 cm and then cut all the way

Step 2: Second Step

Then you have to measure from your waist to the knees.
Mark on the fabric so then you can cut and sew. This is the bottom part of the dress as you can see in the pictures.
Mesure around your waist the elastic for the next step.
On one side fold and sew for the elastic and goes into the part you just sew (as you can see in the picture) Once is in, sew the tip of the elastic.

Step 3: Third Step

Add the other piece of fabric for the top, once you added sew carefully :)
Extend it and measure the piece on the midle then cut.
That's it for the third part ;)

Step 4: Fourth Step

Now learn the different ways you can wrap for many ocassions! ;)
Make a cross on the back then go back to the front defining the waist an tie on the back.

Step 5: Fifth Step

Continuing, do the same but this time covering a little of the shoulders :)

Step 6: Sixth Step

Other option is like the first picture, making like a Top.
Tie on the front then go around your waist.

Step 7: Seventh Step

Roll the fabric to make one shoulder and tie the same way.

Step 8: Eigth Step

Now cross around the neck and tie.

Step 9: Ninth Step

You can make a nude also and the same way :)

Step 10: Tenth Step

Finally you can add a ribbon of a different color, or make it like a strapless to wear with jeans! ;)

    I don't get the fold by length and measure about 42cm and cut all the way. Where do you measure the 42cm? I'm confused! Its for a school assignment :)

    I agree - the steps in this one aren't quite as clear as usual. Looks like a great dress, so I hope some additional instructions may help clear up the measuring and cutting confusion.


    Amazing...although I'm thinking this lycra fabric might not be the best for my body type I'd still like to try it. (Once the baby belly starts to show it won't matter anyway lol) It looks like the strap/chest covering strips can be spread out to cover the back of a strapless bra too, right?

    Thanks, Gianny! You are so talented :)
