This is such a cute dress, I love it! Thanks so much for the tutorial too, you make it seem so easy ;o)
I love the colour combination you used. Very fresh and cute. Nice!
What a great dress! This probably sounds silly, but how do you dye elastic? I honestly don’t know how to dye any fabric at all. I guess that would open up a whole new creative area for me in m sewing!
I just put a couple tablespoons in a pot with a little water, heat it up and soak it for a couple hours. Then I rinse it out.
Love it!! I bought a serger awhile back, but still need to figure out how to get the tensions right. I look forward to making some simple dresses and skirts! Thanks for sharing! xo Heather
Good tip to baste to the elastic first. Is the top knit and the bottom cotton? I have had trouble trying to sew a waistband to a knit before (in the stretch the elastic, but not the knit stage). Your end result is so cute and summer-y!
Hi Jenny,The shirt is knit and the skirt woven. Just pin the top to the elastic both at the center seams, and middles. If the elastic is smaller than the top just stretch the elastic to fit as you sew. stretch
Cute! I love the fabric you chose for the skirt part of the dress.
You look beautiful in that dress. I have seen them on pinterst and have been tempted to give it a go! What a great way to use a thrifted dress and give it a whole new lease of life! Thanks for the instructions!I’m off to explore the rest of your blog now! Have a great day. Rebecca @ heronscrafts.blogspot.com
