Hmmm… Shiny! :)

Does anyone has extra foil lying around the kitchen drawers? You do not need to limit its use with the kitchen! See the dress I made? :))) 

No, of course I’m not serious! This is just another gorgeous fabric that I’ve bought… Couldn’t resist the shiny color, how could I ?!…

Watch and Learn Grasshopper - Origami Raglan Sleeves Tutorial

Almost everyone who’ve read my post about the Red Dress I made using Burda Style’s 08/2012 no. 121 pattern, were very interested in how I made the origami sleeves and added it to the original dress pattern. 

As said before in my related post, I was inspired by Straight Grain's project she made for her adorable daughter. She provides a great tutorial about it in her blog. But let me share with you how I interpreted the technique and adopted it into a commercial pattern. 

So here we go:

Would you join us for sewing a red dress for October 29th?

Hi Guys!

I’ve created an event for the Republic Day on October 29th this year. I’ll be sewing a red dress with a white accessory or a small detail in white (obviously, the national colors… :P )

I’ll be sharing other blog writers’ and sewing enthusiasts projects on the day as well, with giving them back-links in my Turkish version of Sewing Your Style.

If you also would like to join me for this event (probably with less nationalistic motives :P) I can post your projects with your links as well - but please submit your links and / or photos at least a day before (Sunday Oct 28th) so that I can write the post for Monday. 

Enjoy!

An Hour to Sew Top and some hospital fashion…

fashion design DIY sewing top black white

It’s been almost 2 weeks since I shared a sewing project with you :( Partly because of the heavy workload in the first week, and partly due to my 3-year-old man’s unexpected and unending sickness in the second week :( 

When things started to get back to normal at home, I rushed into doing the two things I enjoy doing most in life: sewing and blogging about it :))

So this week’s easy-to-sew project is again from BurdaStyle Magazine. It’s pattern no. 108 in its August issue - also sold on their website: link here.   It has a loose cut and very few details, allowing novice sewers to enjoy their tailoring skills and practice making a neat neckline facing.

EASIEST WAY TO MAKE A T-SHIRT DRESS

It is very easy to make your own wardrobe with some simple steps! I mean, not everything you sew should be featured in a fashion magazine… If you are a consumer of RTW world, then with average sewing skills, you can easily make a good quality RTW outfit as well!

Moreover, it is quite easy to create different outfits by using simple and basic patterns, like the one I used in this dress. This was created with a basic t-shirt pattern. 

Well, you don’t know how to sew a t-shirt either? No problem! You can use one of your t-shirts that you already got bored with.

All you need is half a meter fabric that you’d like to sew onto your t-shirt .  

For example, I wanted to make use of a denim fabric leftover which was barely half a meter. In the meantime, I wanted to practice (and hopefully improve) my aplique making skills, so I made this flimsy patch onto my skirt piece. Am I not the designer? I can create whatever I want and call it a new style! :P

DIY fashion ideas jersey dress

All you need to do is to measure the length of your hips, cut that much of fabric and sew it onto your t-shirt hem. 

But I must warn you on one thing. If the fabric you’re using is thicker and thus heavier than your jersey, then your dress may get a little longer than you want. 

Or maybe more

Anyhow… let me pull up the dress for now and shorten the jersey top after writing this post. But isn’t it easy and fun?! In half an hour, I turned a boring t-shirt into a chic outfit. Would you like to try it as well? :D

When I started my blog, this pattern was one of the first projects I made, again with a little twist… If you like to check it out visit: Making a Chic Top from a Basic T-shirt Pattern

What do I do? I try to get the best out of life...How did it all start? One day I decided that it is time for me to stop paying for clothes so much and make them myself. But the problem was, I had never sewn before in my life! So, I started following my inner voice... and youtube records... Since then, I sew whenever I can and defy the zillion dollar fashion industry in my own way :))
