The Fab Mod Dress
Here it is! A new tutorial! :)
What you will need –
1 yard of fabric
Double fold bias tape
Scraps of coordinating fabric (for pockets)
Measurements – child’s chest, length for armholes and length of dress
Step 1 – Remove cats from fabric!!!
Step 2- Fold fabric 1/4 width of chest +1/2″. Fold going into a slight slant. (The dress is slightly A-line.)
Step 3 – Cut length, width and neck line
Step 4 – Cut armholes
Step 5 – Take front dress piece and place over folded fabric. Cut back piece while using front piece as a guide. You may want to pin it.
This is what you should have.
Step 6- Remove cat from your work area!
Step 7 – Take your scraps and find something to use as a guide to cut them in the shape you want them to be. Well, I guess you could just eye-ball it…. LOL Cut 4.
Step 8 – Pin 2 pieces together and sew up 3 sides. Do the same to the other 2 pieces.
Turn right side out and press.
Step 9 – Turn down 1/2″ from the top and press.
Step 10 – Figure out where you want to place your buttons on the pockets. Sew the buttons on.
Step 11 – Pin the pockets on the front and sew the 3 sides.
Step 12 – Place the front and the back right sides together. Pin the tops of the dress and both sides. Sew them together. Press your seams.
Step 13 – Open your bias tape and pin it around the neckline and armholes. Sew it in place and press.
Step 14 – Turn a 1/2 over on the bottom, press and turn it in another 1/2″. Press and pin. Sew your hem and press again! (I pressed the whole thing one more time.. LOL)
Now you are DONE!!! You just made the Fab Mod Dress!! :)
