With the onset of the summer season, all womenhalf of mankind with pleasure exposes the neck and shoulders, substituting them to the tender sun. Invented a lot of styles of blouses and dresses, bare shoulders. Now comes the fashion of the 70-80s, when they wore sarafans and dresses either completely without a sash, or on very thin ropes. The only thing that distinguishes the current fashion from the past is the presence of one or several shuttlecock.
Dress with open shoulders and shuttlecocks lookseffectively in any shape. It can be of different lengths - from very short beach to long evening. The number of frills can be different. Visually, the frill that is on top significantly increases the chest. Find a model that suits you according to the shape and color, it's very simple. It's even easier to sew a dress with your own shoulders open and flounces on a pattern.
In order to sew a dress, you need to haveminimal experience. First you need to measure the length of the future dress and the volume of the chest. We give 3 cm allowance for the seams and 15 cm for free diligence on each side and prepare two rectangular pieces of cloth. Along the perimeter, we sweep each rectangle and sew on the sides to the armhole armhole. It turned out to be a "pipe" of straight form.
The next stage will be a pattern of frills. To do this, measure the volume of the shoulders, add 3 cm on each side to the seams and multiply the size by two, the assembly of the material. To the dress itself we apply a frill. The letter T has turned out. If you have a sewing foot on the sewing machine, then sew it one time along the edge of the material. If such a function is not available, then do not be discouraged. Just manually have to attach and sweep to the width of the dress. The parts are sewn together as follows.
Rectangle dresses face up, andfrill - purl. Then the frill goes down and (retreating 1-1.5 cm on the front side) is stitched with a simple seam, but not completely. Leave the entrance hole for the gum. So, a summer dress with open shoulders and flounces is ready. It remains to add a belt. It can be separately sewed from the same material or made in the form of a second gum inserted inside at the waist level. It will be beautiful to look a wide belt with embroidery and beads or a narrow leather strap. It depends on your creative ideas.
The next style of dress with open shoulders andflounces differs from the previous one with several elastic bands from above and on the belt. The only complication for beginner seamstresses will be the sleeves available in this model. We start sewing the same way as before. On the rectangle cut armholes for sleeves on the usual patterns. Multilayer elastic is performed by stitching several parallel joints with the same distance between them. We leave the edge of the frill to the desired length.
For the integrity of the image we add a frill to thesleeves, inserting one rubber band around the arm circumference, but not tight. You can also decorate the bottom of the dress with frills, from one to three. Beautifully look at them lace details.

The dressing from above covers the bodice completely.
