11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Twirly Dora outfit modeled by my little man...oh whatever, he enjoyed it ; P on: June 06, 2010 08:25:43 PM
I made an outfit for my cousin's daughter that lives several states away.  The only one I had to model it was my lil' monkey that's a wee bit older.  As soon as I put him in it, he started swishing around like crazy to make it spin. Haha. 

I made it too big, I'm sure.  For some reason, I always seem to do that.  I spose if I measured more, it would work out better.  Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute.



He looks like a mini football player in a dress. Hahaha.



Close up

Thanks for looking...

C&C welcome

Thanks everyone! She wore it to school today and came home and said that everyone told here how much they liked it so that makes us both happy.  Cheesy

I found the tank top on clearance for $2 and thought it would make a cute dress somehow for the littles.  Soo it inspired a "just wing it" tiered twirly skirt that I was going to attach to the shirt, but decided not to.  Anyway, it turned out very twirly and twirly is good so we were all happy...the end!  Grin

Twirly is best!

Cheese

I think she was contemplating how much she loves her mommy for making her the fab twirly skirt.  Wink

goregous dress!! I wish my mom could sew for me!
I have a question about the skirt part of the dress: How are the layers constructed?  Do they all connect to the waist?  And what shape would each layer be?  I tried and failed miserably to make a skirt like that.

Thanks!  I used simplicity 2693 for the pattern parts.  I didn't follow it to a T bc I can't figure out pattern instructions for nothin'.  I fitted the cumberbund tightly to her waist and attached it only to the back waist where the zipper is.  There is a basic skirt with a lower ruffle attached.  Then there is a middle and upper ruffle that have the edges matched and sewn to the main skirt part and the bodice attached.  I hope that helps.

Oh, that is really cute.  I think it looks really great just how it is!

They are all fabulous!  The fabric, the style, all perfect.  You go girl!

Thanks ladies.  The print came from Joann's Riviera Collection.  We had a royal blue that matched for the cumberbund, but I screwed it up and just happen to find the turquoise in my stash of stuff I've been given over the years and we ended up really liking that.

My daughter's school had a Spring Fling dance and we couldn't find a dress she liked.  I sew for my little ones a lot, but she's a teenager and not that into my creativity  Roll Eyes  Anywho, she decided to let me try and make her one.  She picked everything out.  It was a last minute thing and lots 'o stressful, but I got it done.  I would like to say, though, I know my seam ripper intimately now. Cheesy




You can kind of see the back.  It wasn't perfect, and the zipper was a hack job, but she liked and I was really happy to get to sew for my oldest.

Thanks! I did end up taking in all the seams, then somehow screwed that up and did too much and had to let it out more.  Finally, I finished it today, the dance is tomorrow.  Thanks again!
