61  Shirred top and tiered skirt - wishing it was summer again! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by StacyCK on: March 23, 2008 07:49:07 AM
Well, we've probably had at least a foot of snow dumped on us this week, and I'm so wishing for summer!  Here is an outfit that I made my little girl last March, and she actually was able to wear it a few times.  Not so this March...its been COLD and snowy!

Here is the top, with the shirring on the back.  I drafted the top and skirt patterns from scratch.  I made several boo-boos on the top while stitching it together, but it was the first time sewing it, so that happens.  I wanted the top lined in the front, as the shirred seams were a bit bulky.  I wanted them enclosed so they wouldnt chafe her sides and also so they would lay better.  I had to rip those seams out at least twice until I got it rightugh! I have made several variations of this pattern since then, so I usually don't have to rip out anything.  Wink



I love the look of the corset tops with the ribbons and bows, but I try to make my kids clothing to be practical.  Ribbon would get untied in about 2 seconds.  Instead of ribbon, I used matching rickrack that I sewed into the sides.

62  My design - piggy dress for my daughter (shirred back) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by StacyCK on: March 19, 2008 08:27:44 AM
I have made the basic top design many times.  The back is shirred and the bodice is lined.  The skirt I just start cutting and piecing and figure out along the way what I want to do.  Eventually I will probably do a tutorial for this type of dress, but not right now.  I don't have time!

Picture just after I finished it up...she wanted to wear it right away, sweatpants and all!
