We sew the dress for the little princess with our own handsInstead of buying his daughter's dresses of Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturers, you can sew a pretty and elegant dress with your own hands. To you, special requirements are not put forward, it is enough to have the patience and desire to surprise your daughter with an exclusive thing. That's why we prepared this master class. As an initial material, we willyou need a fabric of two different shades, as well as four buttons. We start with the pattern. Take the main material and lining, and open each of the front of the bodice (with a fold) and two details of the back side (not bent), remembering to leave 1.5 cm of allowance for the seam. Thus, you will get six elements of the bodice (three from the material of the lining and three from the base). Now let's get down to the basic parts. Let's start with the transfer of the skirt, which should have a fold. The sizes will vary depending on age:
- 1,5-2 years - 53x33 centimeters;
- 2 years - 53x35 centimeters;
- 3 years - 53x37 centimeters;
- 4 years - 53x39 centimeters;
- 5 years - 53x42 centimeters.
For sizes of the back of the skirt (2 pieces), age is also important:
- 1,5-2 years - 56x33 centimeters;
- 2 years - 56x35 centimeters;
- 3 years - 56х37 centimeters;
- 4 years - 56х39 centimeters;
- 5 years - 56х42 centimeters.
After that, we cut out two small strips,Used for the bottom of the dress: length - 109 centimeters, width - 26 centimeters. Naturally, you will need to make a belt. The size here also depends on age:
- 1,5-2 years - 18x120 centimeters;
- 3-5 years - 26х120 centimeters.
On the eyelets let a piece of cloth size 40x2.5centimeters. After preparing all the patterns, we turn to sewing. Put the face of each other 2 pieces of the lower strip of the skirt of our dress. Brush along the edges in such a way that the ring eventually forms. Slice through the zigzag or overlock. Face each other attach the main parts of the skirt, and then sew the front panel and 2 rear parts. Seams should be on each side. Sew the details of the back panel, remember to leave about 8 cm at the top not stitched. Carry out stitching with a zigzag and iron it. Fold along the bottom edge of the skirt into two parts, so that it is located on the front side of the main part of the skirt and sew it. The lower edge is connected to the edge of the main part and also sewed, and then ironed. The seams need to be ironed upwards towards the main material. Make a stitching along the main material with an indentation from the seam of 3 millimeters and smooth it with an iron again. Next, we'll work on the loops. Pile the stripe in two pieces inward. Spread on the long edge, making an indentation of 3 mm. We turn it to the other side, smooth it and cut it into 4 pieces of the same length. After that, you can also do the bodice. Stitch the seams on the sides of the lining and outside of the bodice, and then iron the seam. Carefully flatten up about 2 centimetersthe bottom edge inside the inside. This operation should be carried out not only from the outside, but also with the lining part. We make the layout of the place under the hinges of the back. The application of loops to the bodice should take place at an equidistant distance between each other, with the last loop should be 2.5 centimeters from the edge. Sewing. We fix the inner and reverse parts of the bodice by pins, having previously folded them face to face, and we sew. Then we sew a large part, leaving the shoulder seams open. In order not to be mistaken, pay attention to the following photos. Stitch through the machine neckline and on the sides under the armholes. The bodice is turned upside down. Cutting the corners, we make incisions on the curvatures, ironing with iron. By connecting the shoulder seams, outer parts and linings, we sew them together. With an iron we smooth the material of the armhole in open spaces and make a stitch on the armhole. Gently stitch the seam on the top of the skirt,forming the assembly. Start and finish should be from the center of the back panel, in the place where we previously left 8 cm not stitched, while the ends of the thread leave free. Pulling for them, we do assembly, and we follow tothey were the same size. The inner and the back of the bodice are combined with the skirt, so that it is located between them. If you did everything correctly, then the buckle of the dorsal side of the bodice will coincide with the not stitched part of the back panel, and the top of the cut of the skirt will be tucked into the bodice. With the help of pins, we fasten all this and sew, retreating three millimeters from the bottom of the bodice. The turn of the belt has come. Combine the pre-cut parts and cut the edges obliquely. Make a seam along the edge, stepping away from it about 10 cm. We turn the belt and smooth it, and then the hole into which we twist is sewn with our hands. Using the pins, we fix the belt on the sides of the dress and form a small crease on the side. The belt is sewn on the sides to the dress, while keeping in mind that the belt should begin under the armhole. Mark the places for the buttons. Remember that part of the dress with the eyelets should overlap the second part of the back of the bodice by 0.5 centimeters. We sew buttons and make our child a new thing.
