1  Re: How do I give my ball gown/wedding dress skirt this look in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by JohnnyBeLovely on: January 30, 2010 07:00:14 PM
I have seen somethings on here that have this feature, but dismally when I go to find them to show you, I cannot locate them Sad

Never fear! I know of the technique and its really quite simple. If I remember correctly its all about taking the current skirt and tacking it to make the different layers. Oh never mind I'll just paint on it and show you what I mean.

Now, imagine the skirt is floor length... Now grab a small section and pull it up, and tuck it under the above fabric.. then stitch it there. (pink is tucked sections, blue is stitching)
Then go along and do that every so often varying your amounts you tuck and stitch as you go.

ok that made sense in my head. I hope it made sense to you.

2  Oversized Tee to rocking Patriotic Onesie (Pic Heavy) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JohnnyBeLovely on: January 30, 2010 01:42:32 PM
So I have convinced most of my friends to let me rummage through the clothes they give away before they actually get to give them away and I saw this cute red Tee that immediately made me think of doing this onesie.  Since fourth of July was coming up and baby had nothing patriotic to wear, this was the fix Smiley

Action Shot!!
Action Shot back!
Back holding still
Front holding still (since it would never hold still on my one year old lol)

I just very carefully cut out the butterfly from the red tee shirt. I sealed the edges with that fabric glue stuff. I literally glued it onto the shirt with Elmer's glue, went around the edges on my sewing machine and clear thread, and then washed it. She had a matching skirt made out of the rest of the red tee shirt but I cant find it lol.

C&C welcome.
