The pursuit of thinness is the scourge of modern girls. Having a slim figure is very fashionable now. For slender and thin women create magnificent collections of clothes, fashion favors them. But what about full ladies? First of all, you need to stop complexing, any figure can be spoiled by clothes, any one can be profitably presented, having previously selected the appropriate image. Body girls are not rumored to know that the selection of clothes above size 50 is ridiculously small. It is rather difficult to find not just tolerable, but beautiful and stylish clothes, and as for dresses, the situation there is generally deplorable. There is a way out - having learned the basics of modeling and sewing skills, you can create excellent dresses with a high waist, free cut or any other to choose from.
If you ask men about the signs of a real girl (woman), then in the top ten, in addition to tenderness and grooming, you can also find some wardrobe items, for example, lace underwear and a dress. How to sew a dress that doesn'temphasize completeness? Simple enough, there will be little difficulties only at the stage of creating a pattern.
For the creation of any clothing patterns are used, they, in turn, are made on paper or cardboard. Of course, you can cut immediately on the matter, but folk wisdom says that you first need to carefully think through everything, and only then cut it. Use ready-made patterns for high-waisted dresses. Before you, in fact, is a finished product, which only needs to be adjusted a little. Provided that the basic appearance of the future dress, the shape of the neckline, the width of the straps, the presence and length of the sleeve, the features of the skirt, are thought out, you can get to work. The simplest option would be a dress with a sleeve, a round neckline and a loose skirt. First you need to take the following measurements:
- Shoulder girth - the value directly affects the width of the sleeve, for a free fit, you need to add 7 cm and divide the amount by two, since only half is reflected in the pattern.
- Shoulder width is a value that will affect the width of the straps, so you first need to decide how these same straps will look.
- The neckline of the dress is measured from the collarbone to the bottom of the desired neckline. It is applied to the pattern, starting from the inner corner. Set aside the radius and mark a point. To draw a picture you need a compass. They put his needle at a point, set aside the required radius and draw a semicircle.
- Bust. To make a pattern, you will need half the value.
- Armhole is calculated based onprevious value. The formula will be as follows: PO / 4 + 7. The length is measured from the beginning of the shoulder, the line will be rounded down, connecting the extreme points of the shoulder and chest. The armhole line begins to round off at the last third of the length, counting from the shoulder.
- Bodice length (measured from the shoulder).
- Skirt length.
- Sleeve length.
- Girth under the bust or where the lower part of the bodice is supposed to end.
All measurements should be divided in half and carefully drawn on the pattern, first measuring the distance between the lines. The fabric for the skirt should be 2-3 girths long, this technique allows you to make a beautiful drapery. The length of the skirt must be taken with a margin (at least 4 cm) - this is necessary for allowances for seams and hem. For all details, you need to leave a minimum of 0.5 cm for the seams. The pattern is ready, the fabric is cut, it remains to sew the dress. Before machine stitching, it is necessary to sweep away all the seams, check how the product sits on the figure, if necessary, make tucks under the bust.
Choice of fabric and purpose of the dress
Depending on the occasion and season, the choice of fabric for a high-waisted dress ranges from warm and dense wool to weightless chiffon. Appropriate processing of seams and strength of the stitches also depend on the selected texture, the smaller the stitches, the stronger the product will be. The material is the most important. A lot depends on its quality and type. For example, when using silk or organza, lace or guipure, you can make an excellent wedding dress withhigh waist.
Space for fantasy gives not only the bodice, but also the skirt. It would seem that it could be easier than her choice, but just looking at the photos of high-waisted dresses, you can note for yourself that the skirt is not the last thing. In addition to length, bend and folds, there are also techniques for designing a layered skirt. For example, when the lower part is made of dense matter (say, silk), and the upper part has a transparent and light texture. Such a dress, if you complement it with elegant embroidery or lace, will be the embodiment of tenderness and lightness, the main thing is not to overdo it with frills and lace, otherwise you will get an overgrown doll instead of a gentle fairy.
The upper part of the dress also gives room for creativity, it can be made using drapery, which uses two layers of material. You can try to make a kind of corset. Such a detail will not only attract attention, but also become a special highlight in the image. To feel like a medieval princess, you can make a bodice with a deep neckline and a modest jumper, and a satin ribbon belt will add zest to a simple skirt.
Where to wear
Before creating a dress, as mentioned above, you need to decide on the occasion and the place for which the seamstress is going to create this piece of clothing. A long dress with a high waist will be appropriate at secular parties, prom, when visiting the theater and as a wedding dress. But it is absolutely not suitable for more serious events:classes at the university, business meetings. In addition, in such an outfit it will be simply inconvenient to walk around the city with friends.
High-waisted dresses for overweight women can be midi length. In this case, depending on the style, fabric, finish and color, they can be safely worn to the office, to a party, meeting with friends or colleagues, business partners, or on a date. So, to create a business look, preference should be given to models with an A-line skirt, and for a romantic date, choose an outfit with drapery.
There are always pluses, a dress with a high waist is no exception. A loose skirt well hides extra pounds in the area of \u200b\u200bthe abdomen and sides, and the length to the knee - the fullness of the legs. The neckline will draw attention to the chest, and the sleeves will hide the non-standard girth of the arms. Appropriate accessories will generally distract from the contemplation of "inconspicuous" parts of the body and harmoniously complete the image.
When creating any product, you do not need to perfectly know this or that pattern, you need to understand and understand the general principles of building various parts of the model. Knowing all the nuances, you can easily create exactly what the soul desires, a model that does not exist in nature. And the best part is that a high-waisted dress created by oneself will be exactly the same, ideal style, size, color, and in general exactly the way you need it. Having bought home a minimal set of seamstresses (a sewing machine, threads, needles and accessories), you can slowlydiversify your wardrobe and become a fashion designer for yourself. Among other things, things created by oneself will be a priori of better quality than clothes from a low-price store, and at a cost they are approximately equal to them.
