DIY Gown Sewing Instructions
Cut out 1 gown piece on the fold for the front. Cut out 2 pieces not on the fold for the back pieces.
Sew bias tape around the neckline, starting 10″ down the center back.
Sew gown pieces together at the shoulder seams.
Sew the bias tape around the neckline, leaving about 5-7″ at each side of the back neck to tie the gown.
Finish the edge of the dolman sleeve by pressing under 1/4″ TWICE. Sew.
Then fold the gown over with right sides together and match the side seams. Sew side seams. Sew back seam up to 9″ from the back neckline. Then hem the dress by pressing under 1/2″ twice at the bottom.
Eleven Hospital Wires Head Piece
To make this start with the pipe cleaners. If you have a model nearby, use their head to get a good frame. Start by making a circle, around the head. Then create a grid over the top as shown.
String beads on the plastic craft lace as shown.
Glue or tie (or both) the beads to each pipe cleaner intersection. Allow a loose amount of lace to look like wires and the glue in the back.
Continue until you get a look you like.
