Oh, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for showing us this super easy pattern, I will definately be trying a bunch of these. I love the contrasted stitching on the red one, but I'm totaly into the yellow and green. Great work!
Thanx everyone. Hi 111Diana777, wow, I've only met 1 other Aurora in my life (not including my daughter) it was my childhood friend's baby sister, and she had long thick golden hair. When I was pregnant, my little one practicly named herself or her angels did. I had the Princess Aurora song stuck(or put) in my head for what seemed like months. Funny though, we did not legally name her 'til she was a week old.
Alexismomof3 Thanx, I wish I had a close-up of the tiny flowers to show you(the colors are interesting.) I flip-flop between plain and simple, and Wild and Crazy. I love the way little girls look in simple country dresses in faded colors, I'll probably post some pics of them soon. Glad you stopped by.
sdhrt Hello, thank you for sharing your views about public pictures, I'm glad to hear what other parents in here have to say.
threegirlsandaboy Hi, there. Yes, you're right, the version of this I made with more elastic looks like a regular peasant top, though I got the shape of the pieces by tracing a country dress I made a few years ago. I have the same ratio of boys/girls as you do, same as my own mom. My son is the oldest, and my brother is the youngest. Do you mind if I ask where your son fits in the birth order? I'm just curious.
MacesMeMe I'm glad you like it. It is slightly more grown up that what I normaly make. Funny thing is, if she was any more grown up, she wouldn't be able to wear it. The neckline goes almost clear to the end of her shoulders (it would not conceal a bra strap) Thanx for sharing your viewpoint on photos.
This is one of a handful of styles I have played with, each shirt I have made has a different neck line. I like to experiment, and I love elastic, since I'm not good with zippers or buttons I usually do a casing for elastic or ribbon all the way around the top, but with this one I put it only on the top and bottom of the sleeves before sewing them to the body front and back. I know the paintshop masks look funny, but I haven't decided yet if I'll share the kids' faces on a public forum It seems people mostly jusy post baby and toddler faces in here, haven't seen many kids at all, but I have not been here long.
My middle daughter Aurora doesn't get any bigger around the waist, but her leggs grow like crazy, so I added some fun length to her purple pants to get more use out of them. I thought it would be interesting to try 2 long layers of ruffles (purple is her favorite color) and I have been hanging onto a purple gingham fabric forever, I only like gingham in small doses, so I rarely use it, but it worked well with the other fabrics(in my opinion) The shirt was just a bunch of trial and error,It's a bit loose under the arms, but it's not so big, she can't wear it.
Can't wait to try these, my 3 girls love striped tights(we call them "pixie pants") but they don't like to wear them at school, because it takes so long to get on and off, and my 2 year old, well, I'm sure you know what a disaster that can be Our weather sounds like yours, changing drasticly through the day, my kids have to get on the bus when it's still dark and cold, by mid day they have taken off as many layers as possible, I think with leg warmers they could at least scrunch them at their ankles, or pull them off over the shoes when it gets hot. I think I'm gonna go turn all the tights into leg warmers.Your girls are too cute. thanx for sharing your project.
I love the shape of your dress, how it opens in the miffdle like a princess gown, very sweet, and that jungle fabric is so fun And I might just try using some snaps on my next dress. I have a bunch but have never used them Great job, and you have have a sweet little princess. See you around.
I was tickled pink to see your Totoro dolls, My kids and I watch that movie more than anything else. We have a growing collection of Hayao Miyazaki films, He's brilliant, and his works are just magical. You've really put the essence of the season into these. I can't wait to try making them for my girls, who pretend to be Mei and Satsuki all the time. I might even give a go at a giant Totoro floor pillow. Thanx for the inspiration. Yellowhawk
Making a stuffed replica is one thing, but this Cat Bus is extreme.
