This fabric sash has been on my project "to do" list for awhile. And it was so simple I don't know why I waited so long! A few years ago I purchased a few Calvin Klein dresses from Marshalls, each were around $40. Fully lined, simple, great fit. But a little plain.
This yellow one is my favorite. And I have the cutest shoes to wear with it but it needed a little dash of color. I rummaged through my fabric stash and came across this material from Alexander Henry called "coriander". Navy, yellow, white and gray. A beautiful combination.
I found this tutorial on how to make a fabric sash and since I'm a visual person I thought I would photograph each step. This is a first for me so please excuse any mistakes! I hope its easy to understand and follow!
Since I didn't really measure to see how long I wanted the sash I figured too long was better than too short! I didn't trim it so the length is an odd size. You can, of course, make this as wide and long as you want!
Okay, before you go to the last step take a minute and make sure there are no gaps. You may be able to sew in a straight line and line up the material just perfect. But I can't. And you don't want to pull the whole sash right side out only to find a whole where you didn't sew! Trust me.
Love! I'll be wearing it to a friends wedding on Saturday!
And I have another idea for a sash to go with the yellow dress and these shoes!
