51  Good apple or crab apple?? in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by KitschyCoo on: May 29, 2008 03:15:41 AM
As posted yesterday, I have a huge fair coming up, Cry ,big ideas but limited yardage of each print.  I've been trying to maximize the prints I really like by adding contrast sleeve and bands.  There are so many people on this forum who have a gift for mixing fabric and prints but it doesn't come naturally to me.

So another for a vote... good apple or crab apple?

Oh, and I took all the feedback from the other topic and am going to now cut the dress a-line... unfortunately it was too late for this one!

Thanks, AeonGoddess.  I love this fabric too.  I want to make everything out of it!  In fact, I have... here's some baby shoes!

Okay, done the shirring a la Nylaske.  Here is new pic:



Much better than the sash!  Still think it could do with a bit of an a-line...

Haha, Nylaskye, know exactly what you mean about bleeping shirring!  That was my project this week, to shir as many dresses as possible... everything was going pretty well, completed a bunch... then suddenly it all went haywire!  Swear I hadn't touched anything but all of a sudden it wouldn't gather properly, it was barely ruching at all.  I changed needles, rewound bobbin by hand, rewound bobbin by machine, tried every single tension possible, changed elastic, rewound bobbin by hand, rewound bobbin by machine, tried every single tension possible... repeat for six hours.  Still loose shirring, had a fit, gave up.  Thought, oh well, I'll work on peasant dresses for the rest of the week, no shirring there... Now tonight, shirring peasant dresses!  Sigh...

Hello there, I've been reading this forum for such a long time, admiring your beautiful creations and learning so much from everyone's advice.  I've been far too nervous to post anything though, I've only been sewing for a year and I'm learning everything through trial and error (mostly error).  But I have a quandary and need help, so I figured I should just bite the bullet and post...

I have a gigantic craft show coming up in two weeks, so I am madly sewing everything I can get my hands on.  I love buying quirky fabrics... Problem is, I love so many different patterns I only buy a metre or two of each!  Then I have to be very selective what I use them for, because it only yield a couple of things at most.  So in my late night sewing frenzy, I've lost perspective on what's nice or not.  And I don't want to waste my precious fabric by cutting three identical terrible things!

So please help, no offence will be taken!



This is the dress on the dressform



On my unimpressed daughter!



I couldn't get a pic from the front as she was desperate to get into the bath!

Also, dress I made is a 6-12m (well, my own version anyway!) and dd is next size up...
