Not sure if people do this in other countries, but my mom taught me how to mark the lines with threads and stitches, like this. The dress fits me perfectly! Although the dress is very simple, it took me a full day…. phew.
With a small piece of soft gauze (double sided, one side stripes, the other side plaid), I made a simple scarf for summer. I cut up 100cm x 50cm fabric into 4 pieces, sew them back together in 25 x 200cm scarf. My mom gave me a ribbon to hide where I joined the pieces, and when I looked closer, the ribbon says “Wedgewood”! But I used it anyway.
