So beautiful! (My 5 year old daughter just walked by and gasped. I guess she likes it too.  Cheesy)
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Vintage sheet dress on: June 18, 2014 01:27:12 PM
At ten o'clock at night, a day and a half before my daughter's kindergarten promotion, I decided that she needed a new dress for the event, giving myself just one day to get it done. My first attempt at this dress: http://violettefieldthreads.com/collections/dress-patterns/products/emmaline-dress-sewing-pattern was getting a bit small, so opted to make another one for her. The pattern calls for three ruffles at the bottom, but I opted for just one to reduce the weight of the dress. The previous weekend, I found an awesome lion-print vintage sheet for $2 at the thrift store and I knew this was just right material to use:


I actually was able to finish the dress in about 6 hours, and I only sewed the bodice to itself twice!  Cheesy
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Rainbow skirt on: June 18, 2014 01:17:41 PM
Los Angeles Pride was coming up, so I decided my daughter needed a (duh) rainbow skirt to wear. I picked out the ROYGBIV colors from the quarters' section at the fabric store, cut them into two inch strips and then sewed them all together. Initially, I was going to make it with an elastic waist, but then I decided to make it slightly harder on myself (something I'm apparently really good at) and do a buttoned waistband instead. Of course, my machine is a complete a-hole when it comes to doing buttonholes through more than two layers of fabric, so the top buttonhole was done (not very well) by hand. I also lined the skirt with a vintage sheet to make sure it wasn't see-through.


And an action shot from the day's festivities:

This is super cute. And I love that it just pulls over, no zippers to be bothered with!

I stitched up (used 3 strands of regular old black on a thrifted pillowcase) this baby for a friend's birthday. It was a big hit.  Cheesy

You, your aesthetic, and your designs are just magnificent.

What a fantastic themed party you managed to throw! I especially like those snowflakes, just gorgeous. I think I'd leave them up after the party.  Cheesy
