1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Peasant top-inspired outfit & Dora outfit on: October 09, 2007 12:48:40 AM
Hi!  I've been drooling over these pages for a few weeks now, and I thought it would be courteous to share what I've been making as a way of acknowledging how helpful & inspiring these threads & tute's are.

I really wanted to make E3 a peasant top (btw I really love the peasant styled dress that a member made for her girl, with a matching skirt for her, I'll attempt one of them next now I've sussed the top Wink)

E3 picked out a soft pink embroidered fabric.  The tute was great, the result very pleasing.  But it needed something more.  I found some red trimming from my late MILs stash, and decided to make a fabric flower (tute on here too) to bring in the red as well.  (BTW, I made the flower snap-on so that I could remove it when washing the outfit - I'm not sure how fray-resistant the unfinished edges would be).

I then continued to add to the top, but making a pair of capris (E3 decided to put the flower on the other leg), and a sun hat.  (I also added some machine embroidery around the brim of the sun hat).

(J1 also had to be in the photo  Grin)

E3 had a dress-up day at preschool last week.  With just a day's notice (we'd been away on holiday when the newsletter was handed out) we went through the fabric stash & I found that I had orange, pink & purple velour, so I could make her a Dora outfit.  I was stoked with the results, E3 is still over the moon!  It took many many hours, but it was all worth it!  Oh, and the wig used to be a black velour skirt.

Cheers, and I shall be back later with more projects (just working on some cloth shopping bags atm, and I want to sew a roman blind for our dining room next)
