my name is Sonja and I've just graduated from school. Since I have a looooot of spare time now and don't want to hang around all the time, I started this blog. I want to show you some of my sewing-projects and hope to inspire you with some DIY.
To get startet I have a simple DIY for a denim skirt. I got this one from burdastyle and it's a great opportunity to turn something old into a modern piece of clothing.
You need: an old denim shirt, an about 5 cm broad elastic, thread and a sewing machine.
|First cut off the bodypart of the shirt beginning from the point where the sleeves start. Then tack the center front where the two sides of the shirt meet.|
|After having finished this step you have to gather the topside of the skirt to hip measurement.|
|Now take the elastic. It should have the length of your waist measurement. Sew the Elastic together at the small sides so that it builds a ring.|
|Sew the stretched elastic on the denim fabric. You should use a zigzag stitch because its more robust.|
