I bought a maxi dress on Monday not because i love the dress because of the fabric and it was sooooooo cheap, one thing you should know i love low prices lol who doesn’t unless they living in Mars anyway lets get started
YOU WILL NEED
- The maxi dress you refashioning
- sewing machine is optional because this is not a lot so it can be hand sewn
- needle and thread if you don’t have a sewing machine
- glue gun this is for if u feel lazy to sew or don’t know how to sew
As we all know maxi dresses can be so long, so if you are short like me its an advantage so i go off and cut off the top of the dress i didn’t really like it all,after all i need the bottom only because of the design
Find a shirt that’s fits you nicely and use it to trace out a pattern of a dress, but cut like 2 inches away from the shirt so u can be able to hem nicely
After tracing the shirt cut off the design, it should look like this
After cutting take it to your sewing machine and do a zig zag stitch because its a stretch fabric, the zig zag stitch allows it to stretch more, if you gluing take your time and glue around the dress where you traced a shirt, same as hand sewing start sewing around the dress
After you done sewing or gluing it should look like this, like a full dress. now hem around the neckline and the arms so u can have a neat finished look. If you want a dress then you will be done,but if you with me and you want a crop top and a high waist skirt. This is what we going to do, wear the dress and mark on top o your belly button because that’s where we going to cut.
Last but not least stitch the elastic around the crop top and around the waist of the skirt
LAST STEP GO OUT THERE AND WEAR IT WITH PRIDE, BECAUSE NOTHING BEATS THE FEELING OF THAT YOU MADE THE OUTFIT FOR YOUR SELF, IT ALSO BOOSTS YOUR CONFIDENCE.
THIS IS HOW I ROCKED MINE
YEEEEEEEP GUURRRL U BETTER, WORK IT LOL
MMMMMMMHHHHHHHHHHHH 😉 werk it werk it
