1  Orange overload!! Skirt to dress recon in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by rikkismama on: August 16, 2007 09:01:13 AM
So I finally got pictures taken of this recon..  It started life as a tiered skirt that I got at the local thrift store for $ 1.00.  I haven't finished it because I'm not happy with where the bodice meets the skirt of the dress, and because I attached the bodice inside out(it's fully lined so it looks okay, just not sure I want it that way).  And the girl isn't sure she likes the dress.

The butterfly apron top laces up in the back.  This isn't the greatest pic of the back as it's on a hanger not a model.

3  Butterflies Galore in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by rikkismama on: August 02, 2007 06:50:26 PM
Here are a couple more things I've made recently for my dd.  When I purchased the butterfly fabric I only planned on making the capri's from it.  When dd spotted it she informed me it was for a shirt, so the apron top was born!!

4  My first post!!! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by rikkismama on: August 02, 2007 05:54:06 AM
I've been lurking on craftster for ages, and I recently joined.  This is my first post. This is one of only a handful of projects that I have completed.  I had lots of problems on this one, I worked through them and am mostly happy with the finished project.  

I made this using a pattern for the top and flounce portions of the shirt, the skirt portions is reconstructed from one of my old shirts.  In a perfect world the top wouldn't have needed the eyelets in the back it would have fit Cheesy.  This was my first time using grommets/eyelets(What are those things called??) and I'm not really happy with them.  Hopefully w/e lacing I get will cover most of that evil.  Oh and the back is only a little wonky.
