A little DIY for you!

20170621_22230320170613_14255220170613_14250420170613_142359Summer is officially upon us! Here in Southern Missouri it is getting nice and hot. If you sew your own clothes you know that our me-made wardrobes are constantly evolving.  In the process of sewing and building my wardrobe I quickly realized a lack of summer garments.  I love to use patterns when I sew,  but have been recently pondering the thought of pattern drafting.  In its simplest form mind you.  I want to be able to create a skirt or dress quickly but not in haste.  I want my wardrobe to be classy, comfortable and fun!

This project has been running around in my brain for a few years.  I love the halter top style tops and thought, I wonder if I could turn this into a dress.   Of course I couldn’t find a pattern that I loved for this project so the DIYer in me broke free!  After searching the web and of course YouTube I decided on the exact style I wanted and got to work!

So far I love how these dresses turned out and cannot wait to make more.

I used 1 1/2 yds of fabric for each dress and had very little waste.

The fabric is a lightweight poly/spandex blend ITY.  I am lucky to live by a few fabric outlet stores that sell fabulous items for great prices.

I will add a step by step post as I make more of these fabulous dresses.

These dresses are so easy to put on a belt throw a cardigan on and seize the world in style and comfort!  You could also make a top.

Until next time happy sewing!
