here's a kinda cruddy tute for the maroon/braided dress. i suggest getting stretchy fabric otherwise you won't be able to wear it.

cut fabric:

sew 2 tubes and fold in half:

(you might have to sew the bust piece in more so it fits kinda snugly and won't fall off)

add front/braided piece:

i don't know if that made any sense but hopefully it did. sorry for my horrible mspaint drawings. if anyone needs clarifications i'll try to do a better job explaining it.

so for the first dress

i've kind of figured out how to make a top that fits me so i can't really explain it but those are the basic shapes i use..you could take a dress you own and copy the pattern..

the bottom i just made a circle skirt that was longer than i wanted the skirt to be. then i inserted another tube/skirt on the inside. pulled the bottom of the circle skirt up and sewed it to the inside skirt gathering it as i sewed..here's a picture of the inside of the dress.

SO you sew together the top (leave one side unsewn for zipper) sew together the bottom then sew both of them to eachother. cut a slit in the skirt for the zipper..and sew the zipper on. add straps if you'd like. take a long strip of the fabric wrap it around the waist and tie a fat bow. i didnt really bother w/ lining because i'm supppper impatient..

for the shirt!

(i suggest using stretchy fabrics.)

sew 2 tubes w/ the contrasting color and fold in half so all seams are hidden. this fabric should definately be stretchy. the thinner one will be the top and the fatter one will be the waist band. bands should fit around where you want them to go.

sew another tube w/ patterened (main fabric) if it's a non stretchy fabric you could shir the back (there are tutorials for shirring somewhere!). now the tube should fit around your bust.

cut a "circle skirt" out of the patterened/main fabric (or half circle skirt). length is up to you. now sew everything together w/ an elastic/zig zag stitch so you can get it on and off.

sew some straps if you'd like. i usually make 3 folds when making straps. fold the 2 sides in, then fold it in half. then sew it together.

sew the straps onto the shirt however you'd like..i made a box w/ an X in the middle.

and voila you're done.

so that's how it's done. hopefully someone understood it.. but if anyone needs help i'll try to explain it more clearly!  Smiley
