I hope you are having a lovely and safe day.
I was mind blown when I read about this idea. So I tried it myself, and of course had to share it with you as a lot of you enjoy my DIYs; which makes me joyful and pleased (btw thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post 🙂 ).
As much as I was excited for this DIY, I was worried about the way I will explain it. To be honest, I struggled. But with those kind of DIYs, it’s always better to look than to read. That’s why I put a lot of pictures to help you understand every step. I would highly recommend that you focus more on the pictures; it’s clear and easy to follow.
If you are ready to make some dresses, than let’s go ahead and get started! 😉
You will need:
*Tissues (couldn’t find the real name haha but the one we find in restaurants… you can find them in any supermarket. Here’s a picture that I found on Google)
*Pearl band for the belt
*Pearls or diamonds for decoration.
1- Fold the tissue in half from the first side.
2- Do the same thing for the other side.
3- Open the tissue, then fold the first half in a half.
4- Do the same for the other half.
5- Turn your piece and open it, take the first half and bring it back to the original half.
It should look like this from the sides.
6- Do the same thing for the other side.
At this point you should get something like this.
7- Fold it into half.
8- Now, take the bottom half and put it above the middle (for about 2 cm) then fold it…
… you should het something like this.
9- Take the first side (the one similar to the picture) and try carefully to fold it; this will be the front bottom of the dress.
10- Turn to the other side: Take the part (the one I am putting my finger on) and fold it. This will be our V neck.
Your fold should look like this.
11- Take the middle of each side and bring it to the center. I would recommend you place your fingers the way I did, that way you don’t get lost.
Again, you should get something like this.
12- Finally, glue all your folds (except the ones we did on the front for the bottom of the dress because those folds are decorative).
13- Take the Pearl band/stripe,
14- Then measure the length of the belt
15- And finally cut it and glue it.
16- This is optional but: you can do the same for the shoulders and the V neck.
17- Measure it and glue it. I thought it would look better if I cut it in half.
18- You can add anything you want: pearls, stars, flowers. I chose a star and I put it in the middle of the belt.
That’s it. I really hope you enjoy this post.
Now it’s your turn: What do you think of this DIY? Would you recreate it?
