1  Child Costume: Little Red Riding Hood in Halloween Costumes by sews4kate on: November 02, 2007 09:07:27 AM
My dd wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood this year, so in my stash I had some Red and White Gingham I used for the dress.  For the cape I used red suedecloth and lined it with fleece so she'd be warm trick or treating.  (I made another one in light broadcloth for her to wear to her school party).  I also made the napkin in the basket and her hairbows.  The only thing bought were her tights, shoes, and the basket.  Oh I also made a cape for her special "bunny", you can kind of see it in the basket  Grin  I'm hoping she will wear the cape for Christmas and for the next couple years LOL!  Thanks for looking!

For the last two years my dd was Minnie Mouse.  I got the fabric on Ebay and used a Simplicity Daisy Kingdom pattern.  The ears were from the Disney store.  I loved this dress, she wants to wear it this year too, but sadly it no longer fits!  Here is a picture from last year, as you can see it is a little bit tight, but we made it fit for a second time Grin

3  Big/Lil Sis outfits in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by sews4kate on: August 24, 2007 07:52:15 PM
I made these for my 2yo niece and niece to be (due Sept. 10). I appliqued the tshirt and onsie, and made the skirt using a tutorial I found on the web (I LOVE tutorials!!). I wanted to add a skirt to the onsie but decided not too and will make just a simple skirt once she is born and I can measure her for length. I don't have enough left over fabric to guess! Anyway here they are, hope you enjoy!

4  My first post~ my take on Cheytown's dress! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by sews4kate on: July 24, 2007 08:26:52 PM
Hi all!  I am a big time lurker here but only recently registered.  I've finally gotten around to trying one of the many fantastic projects I've found here.  This is from Cheytowns tutorial.  I made just a few slight changes to the original, I changed the shape of the top of the front of the dress so I didn't need to use any trim.  And I used left overs to make the ruffle.  If I make it again I'll have to rethink the straps.  I didn't measure before I cut and they were a bit short, thus they didn't turn out as ruffly as I'd have liked, but it still works I think Cheesy  So anyway, here you go!

*OK, so apparently I cannot post pics til I get a higher post count LOL, so I'll post some links*



Thank you so much Cheytown!  I'm going to make another one out of a denim shirt and have her wear it with a long sleeve shirt underneath for the cooler weather when she goes to school!
