I have been so busy with Sweet pea this past week that I really haven't been able to get much done, sewing, house cleaning, laundry.... but yesterday Sweet pea and I laid down in hubby and I's bed and got some much needed sleep. I feel so much better now!
So a week late to post but finally here it is!
The bandana Dress Tutorial!
I used the same pattern as The Carolina Dress but just changed it up a bit. To get the print out pattern go here.
*6-8 bandanas, depending on how much abric you'll need for the skirt
**sew in a 3/8" seam allowace**
Step 4; Now we are going to cut out our straps. On this step you will cut them out on the bias of the bandana. The bias will give the straps stretch to them. Cut them right from the center of the bandana from one corner to the other corner 2" wide. cut 2
Step 9; take both of the straps the pin them in place just inside of the curve of the front main bodice. Criss cross the ties after pinning.
Step 10; top stitch around the front of the bodice only useing a 1/8" seam allowace.
Step 12; Now we are going to make the skirt. Take your bandanas and cut them in half from one corner point to the other. ( a big triagle) Now take on piece and fild in half again. Measure out 6" from the center point and cut. The center piece will be the skirt panel. Repeat with the rest of the bandana pieces. ( I used 5 pieces on a size 1 but for a bigger size you will need more.)
Step 13; To finish the dress go here and follow the Carolina dress tutorial.
And now your done!!
