Thank you!

Doodleabby - I made this pattern myself.  Drafting patterns like these are not that hard, it just requires a little math.  I will try to work on a picture tutorial in the next month.

Cute outfits!
703  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Shirred top and tiered skirt - wishing it was summer again! 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.

Cute!  It totally looks like a dress...you would never know the back isn't there.  I have plenty of pictures to embarass my kids later in life, too.  Wink

Love it!  That is such a cute way to recon an old shirt.  Your daughter is adorable, too!

You did a fantastic job!  I love the design and the dresses...totally not corny at all to have matching dresses.  Cheesy
708  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: What should I buy ??? on: March 19, 2008 05:50:01 PM
I just got a serger for Christmas, and I love it!  The one I got was the Janome 644D.  I think there are features that it is missing, though.  I haven't played with it more than learning how to set the tensions to ruffle (without a ruffler foot...yay!).  It is so nice to have the finished edges and ruffling without taking forever by manually pulling the threads.  I do a lot of ruffling, so for me just that was worth getting it.

I don't think it is a necessity to sewing, but it's like a microwave.  You don't need one to be a good cook, but it makes it go faster.

That is such a cute dress!

*and my daughter is all amazed that your daughter is standing next to Angelina Ballerina  Cheesy

LOL - it was Angelina!  We went to a cute little show where it was very interactive and only about 15 little ones attending.  A great mommy/daughter outing. Smiley

I have been wanting to make one of these forever! do you have a picture of the back/front (depending on how your wearing it)?

I'm not sure what you are asking here.  I have pictures above of the back and front carry.  Are you looking for how the straps are placed?  I criss-cross the straps across by back/front and tie underneath their bum.

I just looked at the pdf.... what's the cording for???  I've never seen that on a mei tai before.

The cording is inserted in the bottom strap and used to cinch it up if it is too wide for a smaller baby, or if they want to face forward in a front carry.  I didn't really use it much, but I had put it in all my Mei Tai's.  If you wanted to leave it off, I'm sure you wouldn't miss it much.
