Learn to make yourself a bodycon dress that you can customize to YOUR personal style! Choose black fabric for an edgy minimalist look or a colorful print fabric for an expressive look. You can also use the same fabric for the entire dress or different fabrics for the body and sleeves.
Have fun! and if you have any questions during any part of the video or your design process, comment them below :)
Just a note: Some of these sewing tutorials are created for hobbyists, not designers. Which means, I'm not showing ALL the steps, measurements, adjustments, etc that designers and manufacturers use. It makes things easier to follow, so that you don't get sidetracked with complicated details.
