Today I am sharing a DIY striped dress.
Last month I made a striped skirt & loved how it fit & looked, but I didn’t love how when I tucked my shirt in, it showed through the skirt & created a bumpy look. So I decided to try something new with it.
And I came up with this – a striped dress.
Supplies needed – half yard of each color will do the trick
When done, iron open your seams for a flat, crisp look.
One thing I did different this time around, was attach the elastic band to the open skirt, instead of attaching after I put the skirt together. Makes for a much cleaner top.
Stitch two lines on the elastic to connect to the fabric.
Once you are done with that, hem the bottom & iron out all your seams
Then cut the excess off the bottom of the shirt
I used two stitch lines to make it more secure.
And that my friends, is how you make this striped dress. Not too hard, right?!
You can see how I placed the seam down the side & tried to line up all the stripes. You have to be aware of that when you are stitching down the side.
I think my stripe obsession has reached a new level. At least that is what my husband tells me.
Oh how I love them though. 🙂
