Laced up collar sleeves

It is a nice way to create a unique shirt without showing too much skin. It can be dressy or casual as well. Follow the trend by flaunting the top and dresses by  doing DIY  laced up collar sleeves  that would make everyone stare at you and wonder from where you bought that top or dress.

You will need

  • Any tee/sweater/whatever of your choice.
  • A pack of silver or gold metal eyelets.
  • Matte black trim.
  • Matte black string of your choice. (make sure it’s small enough to fit through the eyelets!)
  • A hammer.
  • Black thread & a needle.

Step 1: Lay out your shirt.

Step 2: Mark how low you want the cut-out to be and make sure it’s straight. Use anything as a straight line.

Step 3: Cut it out as best as you can. Nobody is perfect, we ain’t here to judge. 

Step 4: Hand sew (or use a machine) the black trim around the edge of the shirt right where you cut it. Make sure both laters are on top of each other.

Step 5: Place the metal eyelets where you want them. You can do however many you want,.

Step 6: Cut tiny holes/slits where you want to place the eyelets and pound those suckers in.  You want to make sure it goes all the way through both materials until you can see all the way through it. Also, when you pound them in with the hammer, make sure your tool is straight or else they will get pounded in all crooked and the hole will be half it’s intended size.

Step 7: Lace ’em up! It’s just like lacing your shoes. Nothing fancy or difficult about it.

Step 2: When you have marked the hole on one side of the shirt, copy the figure on paper so you can transfer the same figure on the other side and get a symmetrical look.

Step 3:Trace the borders of your paper figure with chalk so you have a guide where to cut.

PILLOWCASE DRESS

Easy  and sorted dress which are best for this season!

Step 1:  Let’s get started.  Begin by cutting two rectangles from your fabric – one for the front and one for the back.  For the length, measure from your collarbone to where you want the finished shirt/dress and then add 2″ for hemming.  The width for each piece should be 1.5 times the hip measurement divided by 2.  I cut my piece on the fold so that I can speed along the process at the next step.  Also cut two strips 1″ wide and from selvage to selvage – these will be used for the straps/waist tie.

Step 2:  Cut out armholes.  On the open side (opposite the fold) and at the top, cut an armhole shape that is approximately 2″ in from the side and 6″ long as shown.

 Step 3:  Open up the two pieces of fabric and match them at the armholes, right sides together.  Stitch from the base of the armhole down to the hem.   Step 4: Step 4 : Now, open the two sides up at the armhole and place the right side of the fabric face down.

Step 5:  Press the edge of the armhole toward the wrong side by 1/4″ all the way around the armhole.

Step 6:  Use your regular sewing machine to stitch close to the edge of the armhole, finishing it neatly.  Use a longer stitch length or some tissue paper underneath the fabric to stabilize it while you sew.  Repeat steps 4-6 for the other armhole.

Step 7:  Turn the top edge of the front of the dress toward the wrong side by 1″ and press in place.  Repeat for the back top edge.

Step 8:  Use a 6/8″ seam allowance to stitch across the top edge, creating a casing for your straps.

Step 9:  Press the 1″ strip in half along its entire length, right sides together.  Serge or sew with 1/4″ seam along the open edge.

Step 10:  Use a small safety pin to turn the tube right side out.

Step 11:  Tie a knot in each end of the string and use a safety pin to feed it through the front casing and the back casing on your shirt/dress.

Step 12:  Create a second string for a waist tie if desired.  Press the bottom edge toward the wrong side by 1″ and hem using a double needle or long, narrow zig-zag stitch.  All DONE
