1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: knit dresses, a la Hanna Andersson on: August 28, 2008 05:16:11 AM
Pretty much, I made some sundresses like this over the summer. You'd be suprised how very frustrating pleating the knit is. The best method I found was to pleat by hand with a basting stitch, and then baste it by hand into the fold seam of the top, but I am a beginner.

I am sure my machine would od all of the above. It's got all of those tsitch settings, I guess it just needs to be cleaned, and I don't really know what I am doing.

I think I am going to cut it out, iron it to a peice of pellon with the edges truned and ironed down, and the hand stitch it to the shirt by hand. I ave had good luck stitching wool felt to heavier fabric. I was concerned because this is woven cotton going on knit jersey. But it seems like this plan should work...

Thank you! It was the front gores I was trying to avoid the most. In large part because I have two in the closet here that look like your pattern so I can use them for referance. Hoepfully next week I will find time to make a pattern and give it a try. This weekend I need to finish up the uphosltery for the doll house we are making for DD's birthday on monday!

I found it on the site, by searchimg Google. Gof gure. I get it now. I do not get along so well with stretch Jersey, too much of a rookie sewer. Though I agree that pattern would be great for my kid. I was hoping for a pattern like this one http://www.forest.gen.nz/Medieval/articles/Tunics/TUNICS.HTML that was perhaps a little less complicated!!?

Those are all great options, thanks!

Sadly my husband gets grumpy when I leave raw edges, or buy clothes that have raw edges, but I like the unfinished look.

not to sound dumb, but...What is raglan?

I really like that site, but I have a hard time fidning anything on it because it is orgnaized poorly.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Simple T Tunic pattern? on: August 21, 2008 05:48:01 PM
I have found some online, but they are more complicated (12 peices or more?) , or too simple (2 peices). My aunt usues something she calls "rectangular construction" her tunics are way simpler. She made two for my daughter for SCA garb, but I was thinking of making some shirt legnth tunics for fall winter. A better pattern would be a big help, because I have a feeling if I muscle my way through it blind, I will be wasting some fabric. If anyone knows of anything? TIA!
