This is how I made a silk wrap around sash on a 1930’s style dress.
You’ll need general sewing supplies (machine, thread, scissors, needles etc). I used Stretch Silk Charmeuse for the fabric, 4 metres or your desired length of your sash. Make the width as wide as you want. Mine narrowed in the centre and had a seam, but you can definitely cut your piece as one whole one – just double the width and cut on the lengthwise grain.
- Sew any seams so that you end up with only the surrounding edges left
- Sew around the sash by placing the pieces right-sides together or by folding over if you’ve got a single piece
- Back stitch at corners and pivot
- Leave a gap about 2-4 inches
- Turn sash right side out and iron flat
- Hand sew the opening closed
Sounds easy enough? Watch the video for more detail on this project!
