sewing machine, pins, scissors and sundress fabric.
Be careful watch out, I ordered mine online and when I got it, the fabric wasn’t cut straight at all so I lost some inches at the bottom.
Wrap the fabric around you pin up as need be. I suggest for US sizes 10 and below 1 piece of fabric is enough I think one piece of fabric is like 1yd and 1/8″. Sizes 12 and above will have to use more than 1 fabric.
Pin or measure out the excess fabric.
Below is the fabric all pinned together with like 1/2″ excess in one side.
Here is another view.
Sew a long running stitch from the top of the fabric till the end.
You can either leave it this way strapless or add straps to it. I decided to add straps but I didn’t have enough fabric for the straps.
Luckily for me I was able to find a fabric a little similar in color.
Step 3 – Adding Straps
Measure out a rectangle with 3″ by 14″, I use size 8-10 (US size) so the length varies according to your size.
Fold into 2 and stitch a straight line through the length with right side together.
Turn out the right side out. Here is what it looks like.
Iron it and attached it to the fabric sewn. I measured out 3 and 1/2″ from each sides of the dress both in front and back.
I sew in the straps
Here is what it looks like.
