There we go guys. The tutorial about making this "Toile de Jouy" vintage skirt is finally here! You can't even imagine how long it took us to shot every picture, and also draw the diagrams so everything was clear and super understandable for you to successfully sew it and get along with the instructions. So, enjoy and remember to share with me via social network (Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter) the results by using the tag #somethingfashion!
Supplies you'll need:
- 150 cm x 150cm aprox. of a tight and heavy fabric like canvas or neoprene. For a more accurate dimension, measure your waist and double it.
- Needle and thread. Preferably you'll need thread on the most accurate color possible for the fabric, and thread on the most opposite color for basting with large stitches.
- Sewing machine (or you can hand-sew it)
- 20cm zipper
- Measuring tape
- Pins. Tons of them
- Step 1: You're going to fold your huuuuge fabric in half, allowing a seam allowance following the next scheme:
The seam is about 2 or 3 cm on each side on the inside of the fabric (or the side you're not going to see once it's finished). You're going to pin it before folding in half the fabric. Then, sew it with your sewing machine.
