1  2nd birthday outfit- with chenille ruffly pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: February 04, 2008 07:47:27 PM
My daughters 2nd birthday isn't for a month and a half but I am in the sewing groove and wanted to get at least one birthday outfit done. So I took a shirt off of Targets clearance, added an applique, and made some cute chenille boutique style pants to match. The applique and the ruffle trim on the pants are made from a vintage sheet set I have (they will be a matching skirt soon Cheesy).

How fun are birthdays??

2  Picnic dress- very kitchy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: February 04, 2008 01:25:49 PM
I made around 6 dresses this weekend for my daughter, but she doesn't appreciate them right now so no model Sad. Here is what I call her picnic dress, with red gingham and vintage cottage kitchen fabric. I loved this fabric the moment I saw it and I am glad that I have finally done something with it. It truly is one of my favorite dresses. Oh, it also has a double faced sash around it that ties in the back.

3  Apron dress- reversible- SO Cute! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: February 02, 2008 10:04:41 PM
I have been wanting to make an apron type dress for my daughter, and I came up with this. The apron part itself is reversible, so it is two different looks in one dress. This one is a bit big in the arms and the neck, so I just finished up another one, but have no model to show it at this hour. Next I am going to try and make a dress with just the apron in front that ties in the back.

What do you think?

4  Reversible jumper- thanks Kimberlina!!! img heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: August 10, 2007 07:51:21 PM
Here is my take on the reversible jumper. I just love making these and plan on making many more. I can just picture her in these with long sleeve shirts/ turtlenecks and pants. Too cute! The light blue and floral is a pillowcase backed with flannel. The pink and brown is just a lightweight cord and forest friends fabric. I love both!

Thanks Kimberlina!

5  hello Hello Kitty hat! *Now action packed* in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: August 10, 2007 04:27:53 PM
Here is the Hello Kitty hat I just finished. The little one is napping (hence the just finished), so I have no model. I think it would be a wee bit too small anyway, so I will definitely be making more! 

What do you think?


**Update**
Well, it definitely was too small for my daughter but I am for sure making another for her. You get the idea of what it looks like in the photos but it is most definitely stretched to its max and would look much better in her correct size. I think next time I am going to make the bottom trim thinner too.

Here are the pics:

6  Un-Bearably cute cub hats in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: August 10, 2007 12:05:22 PM
My new obsession (that and Kimberlina's romper:)), I came up with this pattern myself and am going to start selling them on my website and at the craft fairs we go to. Let me know what you think!

Oh, and sorry about the no shirt (my husband hates it when I let her run around like that) but it is hot out!

7  My reconned pillowcase in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: August 10, 2007 11:57:28 AM
I just thought this was the cutest pillowcase and I wanted to do something other than the standard pillowcase dresses. So I gathered the skirt and attached it to my keyhole type top. I then added some eyelet trim and ribbon and there you have it. I love it on her. I think it makes her look like Mrs Roper! hee-hee

8  Reconned broomstick skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by livvyloo on: June 28, 2007 12:11:22 PM
bWell, I wound up making it a spanish style peasanty dress. Let me know what you think! Oh, and the up close shot is before sewing, hence the pins.

Original skirt




I just got back from the thrift store and found this great broomstick type skirt for $6 (a little expensive for me for a thrift store, but it has it's vintage tag with a price of $180 so I feel like I got a good deal Grin). It is a long skirt with an elastic waist and a few buttons down the front. It is not my style right now as is. I am looking to keep it around knee length. Any ideas for a recon? I was thinking a fun summer dress, maybe a halter, but I don't know where to start.

Thanks!

a new craftster, Melissa

9  Wiggly tie dye- Recon of a t-shirt and sheet into a dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by livvyloo on: June 26, 2007 07:56:31 AM
I went to a local thrift store yesterday. They had half off of everything so who could resist? My daughter LOVES the Wiggles, so I bought a Wiggles fitted sheet and a few tie dyed shirts (among other treasures). Last night I made her this dress. I just cut the shirt sleeves off, folded the openings inside and stitched around the new sleeve openings. Then I gathered the shirt using fishing line (super easy technique, I swear! I can get a tute up on that if anyone is interested). Here are action shots of the little one, front and back. It is just a really fun summer dress for her, and it truly only costs around 50 cents to make. Can't beat that!

***These pants were inspired by cheytown's button down shirt into dress, with the most fabulous tutorial found here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=170402.100***

Here are some capri type pants that I made with the sleeves from my shirt to match the dress. I basically took the sleeves, laid them side by side and overlapped them on the inside a bit and then cut straight up the center of the crotch to the top. Then I stitched the middle of the legs together, added elastic to the waist and voila! They do fit my daughter but next time I will make them out of a bigger shirt and make them a bit longer.

Let me know what you think!
