How to Turn a Skirt into a Dress

8/19/2013 05:10:00 pm

Um einen (zu) langen Rock in ein Kleid verwandeln, braucht man nicht viel. Zuallererst einen Rock natürlich - diesen hier hat meine Schwester mal second hand gekauft, dann mit Stofffarbe die Vögel draufgemalt und schließlich mir überlassen. Dann noch Maßband, 2m Borte, Nadel und Faden, Schere.

You don't need much to turn a (too) long skirt into a dress. First of all, a skirt of course - my sister bought this one second hand ages ago, then painted on the birds with the fabric paint and eventually gave it to me. Then you need a measuring tape, 2m ribbon, thread and needle, scissors.

1. Die Seitennähte oben etwas auftrennen - wenn es keine gibt, einfach die Seiten einschneiden. Die Seiten umschlagen und vernähen, damit nichts aufdröselt und das Ganze schön sauber aussieht.

1. Undo the seams at the sides - if there are none, simply cut the sides. Turn inwards and sew together so that the whole things doesn't come undone and it looks nice.

2. Jetzt das Band so lang wie die vordere Partie schneiden. Feststecken und mit passendem Faden annähen. Das Ganze an der Rückenpartie wiederholen.

2. Now cut the ribbon as long as the front of the dress. Pin and sew on with a matching thread. Repeat on the back side.

3. Nun die Trägerlänge ausmessen und den Rest der Borte zurechtschneiden. Ein bisschen länger schneiden als die Träger, damit ihr Spielraum zum festnähen habt.

3. Now measure the length for the straps and cut the ribbon to the desired length. Cut it a bit longer than you want the straps so you have enough surplus to sew it on.

Und fertig! Geht ganz einfach! // And done! It's so easy!
