Who’s back there?!

I’ve been haunted by my overloaded day job for a while and couldn’t spare any time for my night life - namely, my sewing time! 

I finally broke the curse and sewed myself a nice, comfy jersey dress that takes an hour to sew tops.

I still couldn’t finish the inseams but this hasn’t stopped me from wearing it right after my final rehearsal. My crazy worklife these days has only one positive impact on my sewing life. I cannot go out for fabric shopping and there’s a promising decrease in my fabric stash at home (well… until the next shopping time at least…)

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 :))
