DIY Nautical Dress Tutorial
Let’s start with the shirt.
- a men’s shirt with no front pockets and wide enough to cut smaller shirt and strips for neck tie.
- a shirt to use as a pattern, pick one without a separate sleeve.
- bias tape
- matching thread
Step 3: sew shoulders
Step 2: sew 4″X 12″ and 4″ x 15″ strips together Match up the same sized strips and sew right sides together across the top. After sewing a seam across the 4″X 15″ strips, you’ll sew the elastic band onto one of the stripes just below the seam.
grab your larger skirt pieces and sew the ends right sides together. Gather the top to the size of your waist band. Step 7: attach the skirt to the waistband.
