Itty Bitty Dress
Yesterday I saw this tutorial from Made By Rae and was intrigued to read that this was a super duper easy dress to make so I gave it a go and Voila here it is. Just took me the afternoon to make!
There were a few things I learned while making this dress. One is that it is very important to snip along any curvy areas before you flip the fabric around.
See the difference? Smooth on one side and ugly and stuffy on the other.
I also attempted to make my own piping! Was pretty easy. Just cut about 1 inch strip of pretty fabric and wrap it tight around the piping cord and use a zipper foot and sew closely to the cord. Thats it.
Now its your turn. Try it and have fun sewing! Tutorial is on the right under Made By Rae.
