  2. First, the gate is cut in parallel to the seam, then the same procedure is carried out with the sleeves. Then, the neckline is created, for which the outline is made on the front of the marker. Such a line will allow to make cutout more. It is very convenient to first make the outline only on one half, and then fold the T-shirt in half and already cut. So the probability of a symmetric outbreak will be larger;
  3. Next work on straps. They will serve that region of the T-shirt, which remained at the sleeves. Of these, rectangles form, after which they are stretched and tied by a node in such a way that their ends are located on the inside of the T-shirt. The remains are cut.

The convenience of self-made males is that they can be sewed even under the dress. In this case, it will only be necessary to shoot the bottom of the skirt. Very romantic and easy will look up from knitwear on the dress, and the bottom of chiffon. The main thing is not to forget to sew the lining, otherwise all the outsiders will be able to appreciate the underwear.

You can make old T-shirts and in the option «Basque». By the way, today such a style is considered very popular and fashionable, and it will not create a similar T-shirt of special work.

If you want to get a thing with a bow, you will need:

  • Old unnecessary knitwear T-shirt;
  • Fabric segment (preferably, chiffon): 10 cm width, length – 1.5 m;
  • Scissors, threads and sewing machine.

Work is performed as follows:

  1.

After the output, the end is firmage of the defects so that the seams look carefully;
  2. Next, sleeves are removed from T-shirts and lines that connect the lowest points of the shoulder seam. There are also cuts;
  3. After that, the seams are carried out;

Wearing daughter dolls

What can bring a daughter and mother? Of course, joint occupation! And what could be better than joint tailoring for dolls? The most interesting thing is that there are no special skills in sewing something, the main thing, the desire and a little fantasy. For such work, you can rummage in your chiffonier and find a bunch of unnecessary old clothes, which will now serve as benefit. Before sewing a shirt or dress for the doll, it is worth thinking what will have to work with. In addition to old T-shirts, trousers, jeans and other female wardrobe attributes, you can pay attention to socks.

This is the easiest option:

  • How to sew a shirt: examples and recommendations for beginnersThe sock on the doll is superimposed and the necessary length under the dress or T-shirt is distorted;
  • Further S «Upper» The parties are measured by holes under the arms and cut them out;
  • So that the thing looks more neatly, the upper part can be arranged with lace, satin ribbon or to divide by a bead.

For more complex models, you will need to harvest patterns. The same is performed if the dimensions of the doll are more than in Barbie.

Also do not forget about the decorations. Little girls love sequins, beads and other bright elements.

Therefore, even if the dress is stitched not very careful when mom has no experience in such a matter, but it will be bright and spectacular, the baby will forgive such small «flaw».
