Step By Step Making Your Own Spring Fashion Tube Blouse And Matching Thong Sandals
Spring has come for some of us and will happen soon for others. Here are some tips for creating a new spring/summer fashion to your wardrobe. Go to your favorite fabric store and purchase a 1/2 yard ( 18" by 54 to 60" wide) of stretch fabric.
This will be enough to make a tube top and cover a pair of thong sandals. If you have three or four pairs, pruce them up by covering them up with other different types of print stretch fabrics. Now make the tube tops to match them and you have a new spring and summer look. Take those old flip flops sandals out of the closet.
1. You start by covering the sides with your new fabric (the stretch fabric), you can use a spray adhesive (3M Supper adhesive) you can purchase at a hardware store. Cover the top and bottom part of the sandals so you don't get any adhesive on those areas.
Cut a wide strip of fabric that will wrap around the sides of the body of the sandal and cut away the excess hanging over the top edge and bottom edge.
2. Now cut a strip to cover the top part of the thong. Make sure you protect the area where you feet sits onto the sandal by covering the part where your feet rest on the insole. Use brown paper bag with masking tape. Spray the thong and spray the inside or wrong side of the fabric and press it onto the thong material part of the shoe. Have a new sole put on those that need it.
3. Tube top blouse are very simple to make. Just cut the fabric 3" less than the size of the width of your waist. Example, if your waist is 28 inches cut the fabric 25 inches wide, fold and sew edges together, 1/2 inch on the seam.
A good stretchy fabric that stretches both direction is what you look for in a good stretch fabric. It will fit comfortably on your bust size as well.
