1  "In The Garden" dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ljelondon on: May 28, 2011 07:17:18 AM
It had been hot and sunny for the last few weeks so I thought I ought to get around to making my daughter a summer dress. I made this following From an Igloo's Shirred Twirly Dress tutorial -- nice and easy as it's all just rectangles. I hadn't shirred before, but I definitely will again; I was a bit dubious about the result initially but all the shirring tutorials that tell you to blast it with steam are absolutely right -- that tightened it up nicely.

Of course, it's now cold and grey and miserable. But if we do eventually get a summer she's now prepared...

2  Toddler Wonder Woman costume in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ljelondon on: May 22, 2011 04:00:11 PM
DD had a Princesses and Heroes third birthday party to go to. Wonder Woman is a princess AND a hero (and she loves watching reruns of the old TV series) so seemed like a natural option.

I made this out of plain cotton jersey T-shirting. The skirt is a circle skirt with a waistband made from gold foiled jersey; there are matching shorts underneath for those twirly-skirt moments. The top I cut a bit on the large side (well, technically I first cut it a bit on the small side and then I overcompensated) which will at least [insert desperate justification] give her some growing room. The gold on the front is machine appliqud on, while the white stars are just attached with fusible bonding at the moment; I'm going to see how they stand up to laundry (I figure it's a costume, it may not need washing that often, maybe...) as they look better without being stitched on.

Have found pictures of the bodice/neckline:

Edit: and a fairly poor-quality shot of the whole dress that someone snapped on a Disney backlot tour.
