DIY Maxi Wrap Dress/ DIY maxi zavinovacie šaty (SK,EN sub)


Hello. In this video I’ll show you how I made this wrap dress. I folded a t-shirt in half, placed it on paper and I traced half of the back side. I duplicated the pattern and I added the other half of the pattern. I joined the shoulder with the opposide corner and cut the pattern out. I measured 3 cm wide stripe around the back neckline. I retraced it onto new paper and cut it out. I also drew 3 cm wide stripe for the front neckline. I drew a straight line onto paper. I measured the bottom edge of the back side and drew a rectangle of that width. I widened it. I measured 1 m for the length and cut the pattern out. I drew a straight line and traced the sleeve. I made it a bit longer and cut entire pattern out. I drew straight lines onto it. I cut it along these lines leaving few milimeters at the top attached. I placed it onto new paper, spread the stripes a little and traced the new pattern. I used this thrifted yellow duvet cover for the dress. These were my patterns. Front and back side with facing stripes, half of skirt and the sleeve. I seam ripped the edges of the duvet cover and ironed it. I folded the fabric in half and cut out the skirt. I then cut the skirt pattern two more times so in total I had 3 pieces for the skirt. I folded the fabric in half and cut out the back side. I folded the fabric in half and cut out 2 front sides. I folded the fabric in half and cut out 2 front facing stripes. I cut the back facing stripe on fold once. I folded the fabric in half and cut out 2 sleeves. I decided to embelish the fabric. I found this picture of lily on the internet, printed it and cut it out. I redrew it onto some cardboard and cut it out. I placed it onto fabric and filled in with white fabric paint. Same way I painted all the pieces. With yellow fabric paint I then drew the floral stamen. I went over the edges with black paint. When it dried I ironed it well. I sewed the front pieces to the back at the shoulders. I sewed the facing stripes together. I serged the outer edge. I laid the neckline flat and sewed the stripe along it. I clipped the curve, folded the stripe inside and pressed it. I top stitched along the edge and then 2 cm away. I sewed the sleeves into the armholes. I sewed one skirt piece to the back side of the top. As you can see I painted only half of one skirt piece. This piece will be covered by the other piece. I hemmed the inner edges of both pieces by folding it inside twice. I then sewed both skirt pieces to the corresponding top pieces. I joined the dress, pinned an sewed the sides. I cut 2 stripes to tie around the waist. I folded them in half and sewed them down. I flipped them to the right side and ironed them. I sewed them to the sides of the dress. I need to make a hole to thread the waist tie. I ironed some interfacing to the side seam and made there a buttonhole. So this is the final dress. I hope you liked the video and see you next time. Bye. 🙂
