My DIY | Leather Striped Dress
I took my latest DIY for a spin, and I am officially jonseing for a holiday party to wear this (got to look at the bright side of winter, right?) When I spotted this dress at H&M, I knew it would be perfect for this project. I mimicked LC’s look with a high bun, which, as you may be able to tell, is my current obsession! Supplies and steps after the break…

Non stretch Dress
4 yds Leather or faux leather ribbon
First, lay the sticky side of the Heatbond on the backside of your ribbon. Then, on medium heat iron the tape so it adheres to the ribbon.
Next, lay your ribbon in place, Heatbond side down on the dress and iron to adhere to your dress.
Leave a couple inches of excess on the top and bottom to fold over and iron to the inside of your collar and bottom hem
At the waistband leave a couple inch gap between the horizontal stripes, then iron on two vertical stripes around the waist.
To make the corners tidy, fold the end of vertical stripe over the end of the horizontal stripe. Use Headbond or fabric glue to attach. Repeat on all four corners.
