Sewing a dress for a wedding reception or other function is a great opportunity to show off your spa’s signature brand.
Here are some tips to make sure you’re ready to impress your guests.
Sewing a wedding dress is a simple affair.
First, find a pattern that suits you.
For me, the pattern was a simple silk floral.
For the wedding reception, I used a cotton wedding dress, but it can be made to fit any size.
After cutting the dress in half, thread the ends through a wide elastic band.
You’ll need two pieces for each end of the dress.
Next, measure the width of your dress.
For mine, I measured around 28 inches.
Then, attach the elastic to the fabric, which you’ll need to thread through the elastic band through the dress, and back into the dress piece.
The ends are then secured to the elastic through a tie knot.
You’re ready for the sewing!
Sew the ends together, then cut two long pieces of fabric.
These are called the dress-tails.
Make sure that the ends are at the top of the waistband.
The rest of the skirt will be sewn on.
The skirt will fit around the waist, but you can always add a waistband if you like.
Next make sure that you’re using the correct material.
The fabrics are different, so it’s important to choose the fabric that’s going to work best for you.
You can choose cotton for the wedding dress or silk for the reception dress.
Sew the waistbands together, with the waist attached to the dress with a seam allowance.
Sew them together.
Now you’re sewing both sides of the front.
Repeat for the back, and then the sides.
You can leave a little room between the waist and the dress because you don’t want the dress to be too tight.
Sew on the lining and the bottom hem.
You don’t have to do it all at once, just do it at least once for the front and back.
You’ll need a little more fabric than usual to make the skirt, so choose a fabric that suits your style and will help you keep the length the same.
Once you’ve made the skirt you can sew the ends.
The fabric can be any length you like, and it’s best to use a very thin thread.
The dress is now ready for sewing!
Make sure you make a dress that suits the occasion and the guests.
I chose a white dress for the event, but a more colorful, light blue is great for the banquet.
I’m sure you can come up with your own special dress for different occasions.
You may want to wear a white or a blue skirt for your wedding reception too.
Make sure you have some coordinating items for your guests as well.
The dress is pretty much ready for a party, but if you’re planning a small gathering, you can make your own.
For a more formal setting, make a simple, formal dress with the back hem sewn in place.
The skirt is also ready for sewn-on!
Now that you have the skirt finished, you need to sew on the bodice and sleeves.
A simple, tight bodice or a plain bodice with sleeves will work well.
You want to use the same material for both bodices, and you should be able to sew both together.
Sleeves should be gathered together to create a long sleeve.
You might also want to do a small waistband on the outside, but for the most part, a short one on the inside.
I did the front, but I didn’t have time to sew the back.
You could also use a long neck or hem if you want to add some style to your outfit.
The front of the wedding outfit is finished!
I had to remove the bodices and sleeves to get them sewn together.
The bodices are held together by a ribbon, which I had cut from the ribbon I purchased from Amazon.
I had one strand of ribbon hanging down and another hanging down.
I also cut a long ribbon and tied it around the front of my dress.
I attached the ribbon to the top and bottom of the bodysuit, as well as the sleeves.
I pinned the ribbon around the dress as well, making it look like it was a big bun.
Once the ribbon was tied around the bodiesuit, I pulled the bodie straps apart and sewed the bodisuits together.
For some reason, I didn, but the straps were perfect!
I used the same fabric as the bodisesuit.
The only difference is that the bodicules have been pinned into place.
They’re not going to be as long or wide as a traditional bodice, but they’re pretty much the same length.
I made them double length, and I made a slit on the bottom to help prevent the bodiest from slipping down.
Once the bodicsuit is finished, the bodiced is ready to be
