1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Ottobre Tie-Back Tunic from Latest Issue on: May 29, 2008 12:02:40 AM
What a beautiful, stylish dress!!  I love it!  That fabric is awesome as well.  I have it in a different colorway and it's one of my favorites.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Oh so many dresses! on: November 26, 2007 11:14:38 AM
My girls love dresses so that's what I always make (I actually have an outfit to photograph for LaRue, my little girl, that includes leggings and she is telling me she doesn't want to wear it because she hates pants).  Here are a bunch of them that I have made within the past few months.

This is an A-line style dress with a ruffle on the bodice and 3 buttons going down it.  I made this with gray organic 100% cotton jersey.



A crossover dress made from Baby Nay fabric I found last summer at Hancocks and a pink with white dots.


Another crossover dress (I love these because they look cute, but are totally comfortable).  This one is made from an aqua organic 100% cotton jersey fabric.  I put 2 gray buttons on the neck binding.



Tie front dress with a pleated front and two pink buttons at the top of the pleat, made from a chandelier fabric.  I fell in love with this fabric from the moment I saw it, I love the chandlier design and the colors.



Lap tee dress made from a cotton knit with Euro flowers and binded with a pale lime green floral knit.



Chick dress with princess seams.  I saw this fabric in a big pile on the ground in Downtown LA.  I thought it was so cute and I love the drab colors.  I made this dress with princess seams so it's fitted in the chest and waist then flares out at the hem.  I put in pockets and added some yellow buttons.



Another princess seamed dress, but this one is a little different because there is gathering at the waist on the sides.  I used a gray organic cotton and french terry fabric and added orange buttons.  I think the buttons give the dress a bit of a military look.

As always, beautiful amazing designs and daughters!

I was checking out her shoes in the punk outfit...too freakin' cute! Where did you get those kitty mary janes?!  I want some!!

Aren't those shoes the cutest?!  I got the shoes locally, but the brand is TUK.  I'm pretty sure you can still find them online.

I love Asian themed things!  These dresses are just amazing.  I need to make them big size for me:)  I love the obi styled belts.  Are they part of the dress or separate?  Your model is an absolute doll:)  Great job!

Thanks Smiley  The obi-style sashes are separate.

When I am president, I will name you official Secretary of Dressing Children. 
Seriously, you've outdone yourself this time.

And I can't believe how big your girls are getting!

Hahahaha, I love that!

They are really beautiful dresses. As a child, however, I never wore dresses, I was a hand me down pants tree climbing kid Cheesy the problem with dresses is they can be very impractical, even if they look lovely.

You will have to tell that to my youngest daughter.  All she will wear are dresses, that is why all I have been making are dresses, so that she will actually wear what I make her Smiley

Stunning!

I second the request to know where you get your fabrics  Cheesy

Also, the obi-style dresses - are those made out of a jersey/t-shirt type material? If so, I've REALLY gotta know where you get your fabrics!

Thanks Smiley  Yes, the obi-style dresses are made out of knit fabrics.  I got the fabrics from the LA fabric district.

OMG, OMG, OMG! Cool

These outfits are fantastic! These have to be better than any designer's clothes out there. The best post I have ever ever seen on Craftsters. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Just 2 questions, as I aspire to be this good one day!

1. Are you self taught or did you train to design clothes?
(I ask, as I am starting a sewing course in a few weeks?

2. Please could you share where you get your AMAZING fabrics?
Smiley

Wow, thanks for the compliments  Kiss

On to your questions, I took a few sewing classes about 5 years ago.  I was still very very much a beginner after the classes, they mostly taught me how to use my sewing machine and how to read a pattern.  I think that I learned the most from just sewing all the time and continually challenging myself.  I have made quite a few things that are embarrassing or that I had to throw away, but it helped me get better Smiley

The fabrics come from the Los Angeles fabric district, lots of treasures to be found there.
