HowJoyful Babydoll – Tutorial

Last week I show you all the Babydoll I made for our honeymoon, since I already made it and didn't take pictures of the process, this time I draw the steps as clear as I could, hopefully, you will all understand, but if not I will try to make another one, after all, I can always use some extra of this :)

I made this out of leftover chiffon and black ribbon, I burn the edges of all pieces carefully to prevent fraying – But be careful sometimes if it gets too burn you end up with a solid hard edge, not nice!


These are all the pieces you need to make:

    Hi joy, I love this pattern and am currently cutting the pieces. I’m kind of new to sewing so forgive me if this is a dumb question but why does the bottom part need to be 2ce the length of your bust measurement? I’ve been staring at the pattern and can’t figure it out. I greatly appreciate the help :)
