Striped Dress Tutorial

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. 🙂

Happy sewing!
