Description

Cut the fabric into 4 triangles and pinned until I got the desired look. The dress isn’t complete on these pictures. The main body is sewn but the straps are just pinned on and tied at the front until I decide what to do with them. The pic of the front view is a friend as I didn’t feel the dress looked right with my chest (a bit too busty, or not enough material there lol). Will have to think of something to complete it so I can wear it!!

    Yes sure. I think a few people use this method. Cut 2 squares that are the same size. The size for my squares was based on the length from my shoulder to the floor. Then half each square (diagonally) to form 2 triangles. Do this for both and you have 4 triangles. I could put a ‘How To’ on but i have no photo’s from me making it so not sure how I would write it out?? If I think of something I will put it on here.
