aww your girls are SO cute..and whats everyone talking about they want them dresses for there kids? i mean yea sure..but i want them for ME..lol..they are SO cute and i love the fabric and how you did everything..can i ask tho it seemed for your older girls dress it was a little more fitted did you use a zipper or something in the back?



The back of her dress is shirred so that it gives the front a more fitted look, but is still comfy.  I like doing that also because the adjustability of the back means she can wear it for a longer time.

12  Hi-Fi Buddha and some other clothes I've made in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: May 03, 2006 11:08:20 AM
Here is a new set I made.  I fell in love with this fabric and have been waiting for inspiration to hit so I could make just the right thing.  The fabric has floating Buddha statues floating among Asian signs with other graphics sprinkled in.  The dress is a tiered peasant dress with shirring at the neckline and cap sleeves.  I added a lime green with white polka dot fabric to add some contrast.  Underneath are striped denim pants with a ruffle hem.  If I had to pick one piece of clothing that defines my style as a designer, this would be it.



Next is a Hawaiian dress.  This dress was inspired by a vintage pattern I saw.



Can you tell I like polka dots?  Here is another outfit with more dots.


Here is my older girl.  She wore this outfit on Easter.  This is another vintage inspired outfit with it's sweetheart neckline.  And more dots.


And yet another Frida set with a tiered dress and tie front shrug.

13  Another Frida Kahlo outfit for my baby girl and some other stuff... in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: March 18, 2006 03:24:25 PM
I'm so in love with this Frida fabric.  I get so inspired by it, I've made a peasant dress about a year ago out of it, but I've had this outfit in my mind for awhile.  It's a boatneck top out of a cotton/lycra fabric with an applique on it.  I coordinated the Frida fabric with this beautiful Mexican-inspired stripe fabric.  I made this outfit with Frida in mind so I really wanted something that would honor her Mexican heritage. The skirt is a circle skirt with a ruffle flounce.  I also made a separate sash to give the skirt even more interest and I made a rose hair clip, totally inspired by Frida.


I put this up on ebay for a custom auction (we are keeping our own) and there are more pictures there if you are interested in checking them out.

I made this cherry skirt, it was so simple.  I cut out a slight A-line and shirred the top so it has a shirred waistband. 


Here is another skirt set I made.  It's a tiered skirt with a softly gathered top with shoulder straps made out of a red with white pin dots fabric.  I included buttons on the straps so that it's adjustable.

14  Two more sets for my baby girl in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: February 02, 2006 12:58:52 PM
Here are two more outfits that I've made for my girl (and I also put both of them up on ebay as well to be custom made).
First is a peasant top with a full, gathered skirt, and a headband.  I also made a tank top with a shirred back to wear over the peasant top or on it's own.  Oh, and also a matching headband and a sash to tie around the peasant top.





And the other outfit is this dress with shoulder ties, plus a boatneck shrug with 3/4 sleeves to wear when it's cold.  I made the headband again, but this time I made it by shirring the fabric.

15  Asian Inspired Outfit in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: January 19, 2006 02:01:29 PM
Here is another outfit for one of my daughters.  They have FULL closets, but I can't stop myself from making them more clothes.  I was meaning to make myself some clothes, but then I decided to get started on this outfit since I had been meaning to use this asian knit fabric for winter since it's so nice and thick. Since we are already in mid-January I decided to do it now or else it may not happen. I wanted to make something that had an Asian vibe to go with the fabric. I was thinking of a crossover shirt, but she already has a good amount of shirts in that style. So I decided on a kimono top, that way I would get to play with my new snap press. The kimono top sort of gaped in some areas and didn't look as neat as I wanted it to look. So I made this obi-like sash that ties in the back. The pants gave me SO much trouble. Originally it was supposed to be knit pants made out of the same pink fabric as the binding on the top. Well when I was almost done I remembered that I HATE that fabric and remembered why. It's cheap fabric that gets holes way too easily. So I had to scrap that which made me sad because it had cute little ruffles on the butt. So I made these boot-legged pants instead with some matching poplin that I just happened to have, yay! In the end I think these pants work better with the outfit.

Here you can see the cute little print.

And here is the back.

16  Let's do the polka! Polkadot fun for my girl. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: January 18, 2006 11:53:07 AM
Here is a new set for my daughter Chlo.  This is Chlo's new favorite outfit.  I LOVE polkadots so I was so excited when I found this polkadot knit.  And even better is that she had shoes that match the outfit perfectly.  Oh, and I made a headband to match, made with the same fabric as the skirt.  The shirt is a raglan shirt with an off-center keyhole with ties.  The skirt is a drop-waisted circle skirt.



And if you want to see more pictures, I'm auctioning a custom-sized set like this one.

Here are a few new things I've made.

First up is a little red riding hood shirt and red with white pin dot pants.


This skirt for my mom was her birthday gift, and it fit and she liked it.


My 5 year old loves dresses so here are a few I made for her for the winter.




And this is one of my favorite things I've ever made.  I just love it and when she wears it out we get so many compliments on it.  It's a 3 piece set, I put a custom auction up on ebay and have more pictures there:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4794142865&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1


Here's the back, the back of the pants leg has ruffles.

And the dress:

18  A bunch of different stuff and lots of pictures in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: October 29, 2005 10:23:29 PM
First up are the Halloween costumes I made for my girls.  My older daughter wanted to be Supergirl and I decided that a clown would be cute for my baby.  Supergirl's shirt was bought awhile ago at a vintage shop.





And a picture of the emblem


My baby's first birthday was last month and I wanted to make a special birthday dress for her, so here it is, I used one of my favorite fabrics for it.



I live in black shirts, so here is one I made for myself.  I need to make a few more of these, I really love this shirt.


And one more baby outfit:
