Several recommendations for choosing fabrics: they should be light, flowing, thin, so that the dress turns you into a real Greek goddess. If you want a long outfit, the cut of the material should be not less than three meters, for a short dress it will be enough for one and a half to two meters.

The first method is the simplest. You do not need anything to sew. Just need to take a piece of cloth, wrap it in, forming a beautiful draped folds, and pin ends with pins or a decorative brooch on the shoulder.

Then you need to take each side of the neckline on the shoulders and under the chest, fix the result with pins with braids. You can place one more braid on the waist. Once again try on. If the folds are arranged, you are comfortable, you can sew the braid or ribbon to the point.
The same can be done on the back. And you can leave the middle of the cut free to sag - make a "swing". Sew the side seams, and on the side, at the ends of the ribbons, you can make a fastener with a button or velcro.
Actually, everything is as before: turn around the fabric over a tight short dress, form a beautiful drapery, pin or stitch the ends on one shoulder. We sew the individual folds with secret stitches to the dress-base. The tissue can be opaque or translucent - it all depends on the desired effect. If you do not have such a foundation, you can also sew it yourself, for example, from elastic jersey. How to sew a dress from jersey? Very simply - a rectangle of the necessary length and width is simply sewn along the side seam. Due to its elasticity, he will take the form of your body.
