  13. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 13 13

    Now we are sewing it. Because I don't know how the stitch-types are called I put in this picture. I think you'll get it.

  14. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 14 14

    this is how the two fabrics lay on the machine when you're not pulling. You have to pull the pink fabrik smoothe or else the dress won't lengthen

  15. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 15 15

    You have to pull hard! Don't forget to pull with two hands or else the needle will brake!

    sew all the way around.

    this is the tricky part. You will swear your head off but it will worth it haha. I'll promess you!

  16. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 16 16

    Now we need the bottom part of the top

    cut the bottom, it's to hard so it won't wrinkle right later on.

  18. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 18 18

    And fold over the lenght so you'll have de good side on the outside and the goodside on the inside.

  19. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 19 19

    do the same as the up part. distribute the fabric equally and pin it.

    Sew it on. this wil be harder to do because you'll have 3 layers to pull.

    If you pulling is not enough to get the pink on the black equally than wrinkle the pink during the sewing. Try to estimate this soon because you can't wrinkle at the last time everything.

  20. How to sew a bubble dress. A Balloon Dress Out Of A Shirt Ant A Tanktop - Step 20 20

    And there it is! your balloon dress.

    I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I'm going to a 3 day's festival call'd pinkpop. So maybe I'll paint the logo on. But for now its allso very cool.
