So I was minding my business and browsing online like I always do and I saw this Multi-way body suit. I was totally gonna buy it , but my account was like, 'Nah kid'. I begin to vent my frustrations to one of my fashionista friends who reassured and comforted me by telling me I had too many clothes already (she is right..I guess *eye roll) Then it hit me, why pay for it when you can DO IT YA DAMN SELF?!!! and boom there you have it! I made this top in a bout 3 mins flat! Perfect for date night, out with the girls, a formal occasions, or pare it down with some jeans. BTW it only took $3 to make. Here is what you need:
6-10 medium size safety pins
1/2 to 1 yd Jersey fabric (make sure the width is 2 yards) (from local craft store-Hobby Lobby, Walmart, Joanns, Michaels)..I got black and mocha
Pair of thin or seamless panties or briefs the same color of fabric (optional)
I got the jersey (stretchy ) fabric from Walmart. It was very wide; 2 yards wide (72 in) so I 1/2 yard (18 in) is all I needed to purchase. The fabric was only $1.94 a yard. Make sure its wide because the width of fabric on the bolt will be the length for when you cut it for the 2 long pieces for the top. If you want to ensure precise cutting(to avoid raggedy edges like mine), you can ask the associate to cut that 1/2 yard the long way into 2 , 9inch wide 72in long pieces of fabric. You can either pin the fabric to the front of a pair of mid-rise briefs or even to the front of a pair of pant or skirt. Make sure the under garments aren't too high or they could show. Just start pinning each piece using the side seam of briefs as one end and the middle of the front of the briefs as the other. Repeat and you are done. If you want to make it official, just sew the fabric to the briefs using the same guidelines. The pic below shows how it will look from the inside.Pins should not show once worn. Also if your edges are a lil rough its ok, just fold it under, the jersey fabric holds well.I hope you all really like this post! I really loved making this and just wanted to share the idea to save you all a few coins. Please comment and I would love to see how you do it ya damn self!Enjoy;)
That's Just Me!
