1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Orange overload!! Skirt to dress recon 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.

Thanks for looking!!

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!!

Butterfly Apron top- this is reversible with the fabrics reversed on the opposite side.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Skirt help needed on: August 02, 2007 12:01:08 PM

I spotted this skirt. I would love to make my dd something similar. I believe she may have gotten the pattern from youcanmakethis.com. I would love to buy the pattern and make one, but I do not have funds available for that at this time.

I have instructions for a tiered skirt, I'm pretty sure that I could make the waistband(yoke?) from that pattern and then just cut vertical strips to make the skirt. Also, I know the petty coat is attached on the seam of the waist and strips area of the skirt. The things I'm not sure of is how many strips I would need, or rather how much I would need to increase the measurement from the waist measurement. double?? triple??(my instructions include information to figure the length for the layers of the tiered skirt, maybe I should use one of those figures??) Also, would I want the petty coat to have the same measurements as the finished strip area or would it need to be bigger or smaller? And I assume that I would want the ruffle on the petty coat to be 1 1/2 or 2 times the length of the petty coat before gathered.

I hope this makes sense and I would be very thankful for any help. Also if anyones interested I can post the link to the tiered skirt tutorial. I haven't made one yet, but from the best I can tell the instructions are accurate and very detailed.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first post!!! 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.  




Thanks for looking!!!
