In this project, I didn't use a sewing machine, only a needle, pink embroidery thread, a pair of scissors, sewing chalk and my glue gun. Sorry, I don't have exact measurements.
|The after! Does it give you a resort feel?|
Measure from shoulder to wherever you want your top to end.
Cut the skirt to length
I had cut off a good 8 inches so I cut that into four 2 inch strips of fabric. I then opened the left and right seams of the top of the skirt - this is where the arms will go.
I added darts to the top of the front and back panels
Darts in the middle, left and right. Use your chalk & ruler!
Used my trusty hot glue gun to glue the darts.
I didn't use a sewing machine as the top of the skirt was
elasticated and thus too thick for any needle!
While waiting for the glue to dry, I made a plait
from 3 strips of fabric.
I sewed the plait along the top edge of the front panel
and then the back panel.
Made sure I could fit my arms in
I hope you like it! I also made a flower with the 4th strip of fabric....
