let`s see ...
even though it was not a fancy evening gown draping, still, drape is drape.
I like it!
Below was the silk fabric. heavy and full, a gift from my sister more than 10 years ago. I've been saving it relentlessly. I guess for two reasons. 1:fabric hoarder symptom....2: I had too much things on my mind or + too much fabric to cut..
Here is how I made it .
fold it like doing origami.
fold again so to form an angle, in order to cut a hole.
here it goes.a circle . cut and done.
it is a bit too big........though......but no regret.
I hanged it around my own neck and measured the length and sleeve length. using a few pins to secure the position, so I might know where to cut.
done. here are the 4 corners.
anyway, it needed some "design details"....
look what I got.
not that bad.
as the collar was too big, I cut straps using the left over triangles and attached it to the collar.
Thanks for watching. Hope you liked this tutorial.
sometimes it is cool to sew up a thing quick as a wink. especially it is for myself.
I CAN spend a few weeks on one single garment, but I often choose to do it fast for pleasure whenever it is possible.
