11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New Clothes for the Girly! on: September 10, 2014 02:34:58 PM
Hello!  I've been sewing quite a few things for my 9yo daughter, and wanted to post them here.  I posted the first skirt I made here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435505.0#axzz3CwyihmfB

And here are some others. 

Another Insa skirt:

And the fabrics she chose for the underskirt:

Imke top:

Another Imke top:

Dress made by extending Imke top:

And again, but with long sleeves:

Please ignore the mess and the fact that the floor needs a vacuuming!  Thanks for looking!!

alwaysinmyroom  - I agree.  I *am* lucky!  My son stopped wanting me to make him things when he was a couple years younger than she is (she's 9 now).  I'm not sure how long it will last, though - she seemed a bit less enthused about this project than others past, but I am in process of making a couple of long-sleeved tee's that she's excited about, so we shall see.

HSG - thanks, and good point!  If her enthusiasm wanes, perhaps I can use that logic to woo her back for a bit!  Cheesy

That's very cute!  This board doesn't seem to be as active as it has been in the past - can't imagine why no one else has commented - great work!  And your daugther seems to be happy with it, too!  Smiley

Fabulous!  I especially love the coat-and-shorts look!  Smiley  I have yet to try making a coat with a hood - yours came out great!

alwaysinmyroom - Thanks!  Yes, my girly has her very own unique style, and likes to put all sorts of colors and patterns together.  We often don't agree on what looks good together, but that's okay.  We agree often enough that I can make her fun things!  Smiley

Messed up last post, so this will be quick - just the pics and maybe explanation later!

Edited to add:  Ok!  Got girly off to school and me to the office, so a quick description - this is a skirt that has an overskirt and an underskirt.  I used 4 different colors of piping in between the seams of the overskirt (both over and under skirts have 4 gores each), and put bias tape around the bottom to finish instead of a hem.  The underskirt is just simply sewn and hemmed, no embellishments. 

I really like how it came out!  Might just have to make her another, if I can find another good combination of fabrics to use!

Thanks for looking!

Cute idea!  Might steal it . . . Smiley

It looks to me like an abstract of a human form dancing - the head down, arms flung back above the head and standing on tiptoes with one foot lifted a bit . . .

It's very cool, whatever it is!  Good job!

That's all so cute!  I love miniatures, but do not have the patience to make them!
20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Completely Machine Stitched Binding Tutorial (pic heavy) on: May 16, 2014 10:43:40 AM
Ataching to the back first!!!  So obvious but yet I never tought to do that!  That will make my quilts soooo much nicer-looknig!  I have done the machine-binding, as well, but always joined it to the front first - then I would miss some of the binding on the back, or have to have TOO much overlap so that it doesn't look great - this is fabulous!  Thanks!  Smiley
