Together with my mom I walked on the lively boulevard of Scheveningen. We ate icecream, wandered down Scheveningen Pier and felt the soft summer breeze. I love having nowhere to be and having so much free time. When I got home I had the urge to use this inspiring day for one of my little projects and make something very beach like.
<- I used a fitted shirt.
If you use a shirt that's a bigger size then your usual you'll get some sort of dress, you'll have more pleats and I think it's more comfortable and pretty.
Grab a shirt.
Cut off sleeves but leave as much usable fabric as you can
Front; Cut along the red line. Cut a straight line from sleeve to sleeve below the lowest part of the neckline ribbing.
Back; Cut a straight line from lowest part of cut off sleeves.
Pin a bias tape onto the part which is indicated blue in the picture (or hem it).
I've made my own bias tape from scrap fabric and used this tutorial
Cut a strip with the same measurements as the neck (orange on picture) but measuring 7cm wide.
press it as if it were a bigger piece of bias tape.
Sew it on, this is going to be the tunnel.
From scrap fabric cut a strip measuring 160cm long and 7cm wide.
fold it over (160cm x 3.5cm)and sew it. Turn inside out and press. Close both ends.
Pull through tunnel and tie it.
