I made these 2 dresses in 3 days handsewn I am new at sewing so be gentle
dress with ribbon and gypsy skirt
corduory dress with matching headband
close up of head-band
Tut for flower on head-band and how to make headband: please note, I didn't use a pattern for this, just winged it, so excuse the rather basic instructions, If you like I could make a photo tut but I think it's pretty simple and easy to make just following these written instructions
first, make your head band, measuer the circumfrance of the childs head, divide it by three, 1/3 make a thing bout inch wide hemmed band. Next, get elastic and wrap around childs head to measure, stretch it a little, but not totally, as you will want growing room. Attatch measured elastic to band
Now you can make the flower.
Take a square of fabric that matches the fabric you made the dress out of and some spare scraps of Tulle in a nice co ordinating colour.
Turn fabric right side down and draw little clover type flower patterns, do about 10 of these in size descending order. The next bit, use your best judgement for, I only used 6 of my flower shapes. Layer the flower like this:
big shape, smaller shape, Tulle
Smaller shape, tulle
Smaller shape, smaller shape, Tulle
Hold the flower together with thumb and forefinger and press to headband, run yoru thread directly through the middle and back up, do this a few times until the flower is secure. Then your headband is done!
