    make a 5cm(thick), 60cm(length) ribbon with the fabric and added as a neck

    Also you should add the same 5cm(thick) ribbon (length depends on your arms thickness) to the ends of both sleeves

    AS FOR THE WAY TO CLOSE THE GABAN/DRESS, YOU CAN USE BUTTONS, A ZIPPER, BRA CLIPS OR VELCRO (is up to you)

  • Step 4

    Now that we have the bagan/dress, we can start adding buttons, the lace and details.....

    I open the dress like to show "cleavage" and sewed it then add a lace.
    I also add some colorful big buttons on the sleeves.
