UPCYCLE ? DESIGN A SKIRT WITH EMBROIDERY

UPCYCLE ? DESIGN A SKIRT WITH EMBROIDERY

Embroidery is such a hot trend this spring!  Whether you are sewing a skirt from scratch or recycling one from the back of your closet, adding a touch of embroidery can create an entirely fresh look.  Keep in mind this would look great on a dress too ?

Supplies:

DESIGNER TIP: My skirt fabric is a linen blend, but the stabilizer I am using would work great on rayon, cotton sateen, denim, wool, and cotton blends.  JUST be careful with satin, silk blends, and velvet (to name a few).  You don’t want to damage the fabric from the iron when pressing on the fusible stabilizer; it’s best to test the stabilizer on a swatch of fabric first.

Determine the placement for the embroidery on the skirt.  I am going to focus on one side of the front of the skirt; marking that spot with a fabric pen or tailors chalk.   Press the embroidery stabilizer on the wrong side of the fabric covering the area to be embroidered.

Hoop the fabric and insert the hoop into the machine.  Choose an embroidery design or add a couple of designs onto the screen.  Scan the fabric in and move the embroidery design as needed. If you don’t have the scanning feature on your sewing machine, use an embroidery placement marker such as the snowman or other tools.

Cheers,

Shirt Dress Sewalong: Sewing the Sleeve Placket

Shirt Dress Sewalong: Sewing the Sleeve Placket

It’s Sew Easy TV’s Shirt Dress Sewalong 

Part 4: Sewing the Placket on the Sleeve

There are many ways to sew the sleeve placket and depending on your pattern you might have a one piece or two piece placket.  If you have a two piece placket, you can change it to one piece and follow the steps I have shown in the tutorial.  I learned this technique from altering men’s ready-to-wear and thought THIS WAS SO EASY (It’s Sew Easy LOL!)

The video from It’s Sew Easy tv is a brief tutorial on sewing the placket including pressing and topstitching. As far as interfacing, keep the interfacing out of the seam allowances or the placket will be too stiff.

I am going to work on another shirt dress out of chiffon and definitely going to add embroidery.  Now is the time to embroider the sleeve, before we sew the side seams.  Just an idea 🙂

Sewing the collar and collar band can be intimidating, but it’s easier than you might thing. The most important is the topstitching, this is what makes your shirt or shirtdress look expensive.  Watch the video below for a quick preview of sewing the collar.

How to Sew the Front Placket

It’s Sew Easy TV’s Shirt Dress Sewalong – Part 2 

Tips for Attaching Interfacing

Pressing fusible interfacing to the fabric is easy if you follow these tips:

  • Use a press cloth underneath the garment to prevent the fusible from ruining the ironing board cover
  • Use a press cloth between the garment  to save your iron and prevent burning the fabric
  • When pressing the interfacing into place, lift and hold the iron – DO NOT SLIDE IRON
  • Press and hold the iron for a few seconds and press firmly to prevent the fusible from coming unattached later on

Pressing Cloth

You can use various fabrics for a press cloth.  I tend to use a lightweight cotton or muslin fabric because that is what I typically have on hand.  Cheese cloth is another option and Silk organza is another favorite.
SEWALONG SALE

Tips for Topstitching

  • Stitch from the right side of the fabric
  • Use cotton or silk thread for touch of style
  • The triple stitch with a stitch length of 3.5 to 4.0 resembles ready-to-wear
  • Lengthen the stitch length and test on a scrap of fabric to see which looks the best

Here are some of the supplies I used in this episode:

You will find links to many of these items on my Amazon shopping list.

Fabric Ideas

Patternsangela wolf shirtdress

Check your pattern stash 🙂  Any button down shirt or shirtdress will work 🙂    Here are a few ideas:

Fabric

A cotton or cotton blend is the most common fabric used for a shirt dress, but the dress can take on a completely different look with different weight fabrics. Consider a rayon, linen, silk charmeuse, silk chiffon, or crepe.

TIPS:

  • If you choose a fabric with a print be sure to buy more fabric than the pattern recommends so you can line up the design while cutting out
  • Pre-shrink the fabric by washing and drying the fabric before cutting

  • Interfacing
  • Buttons

Beginners Guide to Fashion Sewing
