I love these, but they are mighty pricey. I have a ton o scraps laying around so I thought I would try it...I think it turned out kinda cute. I made my oldest model it as soon as she came home from school. HaHa.. She was thrilled. Whaddya think? C&C welcome.
Hi, you did a really good job with this pattern. I'm in the process of making the same one and I was wondering if you had to make any adjustments for the bust area? I hope I'm not too late with this question. Also, I was wondering what kind of material you used.
Thanks, yes, i did have to make adjustments, my daughter is a lot bigger on the bottom than the top so we went by the measurements on the envelope and it ended up being waaaay to big. I had to take in some of the seams on the bodice and lining. i also found the cumberbund was a total pain in the butt to make the way they suggested. I actually thought it looked better without the gathering stiches anyway. I'm not sure what the fabric was, it was from Joann's Riviera collection. It was similiar to cotton but with more of a sheen to it if that makes sense...sorry, I am not so great wit identifying material. Good Luck!
I had to make an outfit for the brother of the little gal that will be getting the Dora twirly skirt I posted earlier so he wouldn't feel left out. He loves Mario and I just happen to have a Mario/Zelda sheet I picked up a long time ago and never used. I want to say, I will NEVER EVER EVER use a stupid pattern for little people pants or shorts! What the heck??? I only used it bc I wanted to just cut out the Mario parts of the sheet, otherwise, I would just use the super quick two piece cut out yourself method. I don't even want to discuss how I jacked it all up. Let's just say a 30 min job turned into a 2 1/2 job. Anywho, I think they are pretty cute. The kids I made them for are opposite of mine so after having my boy model Dora, I'm had my daughter model Mario. Oh well, right? They don't care. They could be modeling old lady's orthopedic shoes and would be happy about it as long as they are getting attention.
LOL..My three yr old was standing beside me while I was looking at your shoes and he took a deep breath in and said "wooooooooow! Can I have those shoooooes?" They ARE awesome! I would TOTALLY wear those! What a lucky bestie you have!
That is super cute. I have two little boys that I have wanted to make shirts like that but I wasn't sure how they would turn out. You have inspired me to give it a try. Your model is quite dashing as well!
