Recent decades witness the rapid development of economy and society, and a number of folk are beginning to pay more attention to their dressing style. As for women, I believe most of them are keen on wearing various dresses, especially summer dresses. As a matter of fact, there is a lot of different summer dresses which are popular with lots of females emerged in the market. No matter what season it is, there are an ocean of women is fond of dressing their favorite dresses. Generally speaking, for a creative summer outfit, you can use an old tank top and some extra fabric to make dress. For a pretty and warm winter ensemble, you can dress it up with some long sleeves and add a simple scarf. For my money, this versatile dress is simple to make and the sleeves can be added and removed over and over again for years of wear. Besides, if you want to create casual appearance, you can use a satiny fabric for an elegant dress or a cotton-blend fabric.

1. However, since a large amount of females love to wear these Women Summer Dresses, how to make summer dresses? Firstly, it is necessary for you to lay an old or new semi-fitted tank top on a flat surface. Traditionally, a ribbed cotton-knit tank top is a good choice for Cheap Lace Dresses, but any unprinted fabric will work. Then you need to measure the distance from your shoulder to one inch below your bust line and place the sewing tape measure at the top of the strap on the tank top. Also, it is essential that you make a mark at the measurement you obtained below the bust line. Next, you should cut the tank top at this mark, fold over a 1/4-inch of the rough bottom edge and pin it in place and sew the fold in place using a straight stitch to make a smooth edge. Put the tank top aside for later and lay a large piece of satiny fabric on the flat surface. Measure the circumference around the widest portion of your hips. Cut a piece of the satin fabric into a rectangle that measure approximately six inches larger than the hip measurement by 30 inches.

2. Secondly, it is important for you to turn the fabric rectangle over so that the wrong side is facing upward and place the rectangle so that one edge of the fabric that has been cut to the circumference of your hips is directly in front of you. To make a pleat, you need to pinch together approximately 1/4-inch of fabric on that edge and fold it over and pin the pleat in place and repeat this step one inch away for the next pleat and then all the way along the edge. I suggest you had better to start back at the first pleat, four inches down from the edge of the fabric and pinch the same 1/4-inch of fabric. Fold over the pleat and pin it in place, which can elongate the pleats made at the top edge of the fabric, using a straight stitch on the sewing machine to sew the four inch length of each pleat in place.

3. Finally, on the one hand, you need to turn the fabric so that the opposite end of the fabric is in front of you. Also, you need to turn over a 1/2 inch of fabric and pin it in place and use an iron to create a crease along the fold line and then sew the fold to make a smooth hemline, pining the edges together and use a straight stitch to sew the edge together approximately a 1/4-inch away from the edge. On the other hand, it is vital that you turn the tank top inside out and pin the pleated top edge of the skirt to the wrong side of the tank top and sew the fabrics together using a straight stitch for a completed summer dress. ThusArticle Submission, a beautiful summer dress is finished.
