How to turn up a dress quickly

Image

This is my little sister dress her mum bought for her the other day but it is very long, and long dresses are not good for small children! Lots of tripping over involved. So i turned it up for her. So here is a simple demonstration on how to do it. 🙂

Step 1: Decide on what length you would like the dress to be and cut the remainder of the fabric off. I use crimping scissors to make sure the fabric doesn’t fray.

(Keep the leftover fabric, i used this to make a little headband to match the dress using elastic)

Step 2:Turn the rim up and press. Make sure it has the same thickness all the way along.

Image

Step 3: Repeat the same process as before,

Image

Pin the fabric in place once pressed so it doesn’t move whilst sewing!!

Image

Step 4: Sew all the way along making sure its straight. Easy peasy!! Your probably didn’t need a tutorial but hey.. i thought i’d do one anyway!!

🙂 Happy Sewing!!
