25  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Is it copyright infringement to sell stuff made from a pattern? on: April 25, 2010 09:11:13 PM
I know that there has been 12 pages of replies to this question but I thought I would put my two cents in as well.

First off, selling products made from someone elses pattern is not only illigal in most cases but in my opinion unethical as well.

That being said, I have used several patterns in the past for personal use. being a self taught sewer I have learned enough about the basic way to put pieces together to get the desired look I want and have started to draft my own patterns.

I would say do alittle studying on how your craft is put together and come up with some great designs of your own.

so far I have only made a few things for my little one but am really looking into starting my own childrens clothing line (small time of course).

on a side note: there is only so many ways a sleeve can be cut and sew on or a skirt made. I have seen several sites that sell similar things (I.E. pillow case dresses) but they each have their own special flare to them.

good luck and keep the creative juices flowing.

thanks so much for the replies.

28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / patchwork recon of a tank for a 4 week old (updated with bloomers) on: April 23, 2010 07:40:46 AM
this is a patchwork dress that I am working on for my four week old little girl. with her being in the 2% of her weight compared to other babies her age, I can't find many things that will fit her. this has sent me on a sewing spree. which is hard to do with no extra money and no fabric store near by.

this is the third dress I have made her. right now I am working on a pair of bloomers to match. let me know what you think.







here is the dress with my first attempt at bloomers to match. baby just woke up from her nap and wanted to be fed more then model.


29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A few dresses. on: April 22, 2010 11:20:00 AM
I just had my little girl four weeks ago. she is small even for a newborn and it is hard to find clothing to fit her. I didn't want to spend a huge amount of money on clothing that she will outgrow in a few weeks/months so I decided to make a few things for her.

the first one is a onsie that I attached a skirt too. I added a ribbon around the waist and then sewed a button in the waist line to help tie the whole thing together.




here is my little one wearing it.




with this one I was inspired by the posts of some of the other crafty crafters on here. where they would take a skirt for an older child and cut it down to make a dress for a toddler. well seeing as my little one is so small (she weighs less then 7 lbs. at a month) I didn't see as how I would be able to find a skirt to fit my needs. so I drafted up a pattern that would relay the same style. this is my first attempt at drafting a pattern and there are a lot of techical errors on the dress. but she isn't old enough to cretique yet so I'm not sweating the small stuff. OK enough words here she is in her dress.




what do yall think? cc is always helpful.
