Whew! I have been busy! I was up til around 4 last night (this morning?) and finished off 4 dresses and a skirt. Some had been started previously, but all were finally completed this time! I am so thrilled with them all, especially with the fact that the gathering was baste and pull, which I have previously been atrocious at. Something must have clicked, because it works now! (I just love it when things like that happen, new talent developing in your sleep or something)

First, my pirate pixie skirt:




My leopard print sundress:


My deck of cards sundress:



My leopard/black sundress:



And my absolute favorite, the zebra one:




A close-up of the hot pink topstitching, not too visible in this light, but it's there!

And the hot pink rolled hem, which I was delighted with. I was too tired to really hem by this point and decided to put the topstitching thread in the upper looper of the serger and be lazy, which often works against me, but this was in my favor.



I'm debating on adding a hot pink ribbon to the waistband of the zebra one. Any thoughts?

Feedback very appreciated!

These are great, i love the pirate pixie skirt
I would say you should totally add a hot pink ribbon to the waistband of the Zebra one, and then when she wears it, tie her hair with matching ribbon Smiley

GORGEOUS!!!!
My fave is the zebra one. I used to hate zebra prints. Don't know why but I did. Something happened and now I love it. (maybe that happened in my sleep, hehe)
I would totally add a pink something at the waist. That rolled hem is beautiful and delicate. I think the pink at the waist would help bring the eye to the hem as well and tie it in. Even a rolled edge along the neck line and the armholes too. Nothing like me making more work for ya..
It's beautiful!!

I have no babies but if I did she would be a girl I'm sure and it would be so fun to make her stuff like that.
Rock On

I'm ussually not a fan of skulls on little ones (and my niece won't go near the skull and cross bones because it means danger), but I LOVE the pixie pirate outfit - complete with tatoos too, it looks great.  I like the others to - great job:)

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

These are adorable! I think the zebra one is my fave too (=

I think a pink ribbon or something in the middle would be good.

Great Work (=

Love them!  I also vote YES! on the pink ribbon added, and matching hair bow(s).  Just something simple, with a medium sized bow, maybe off to one side.  Also, I love the rolled hem on skirts like this, sometime a traditional hem is too bulky and stiff, but the rolled hem lets the fabric remain flowy!

OK so when I was looking at that zebra dress I was totally thinking 'she should totally add a hot pink ribbon on the waist of that dress, that'd be awesome' and then i scrolled down and you asked that very question to which i can only say 'HECK YA!'

especially love that zebra one! I think a hot pink waist band would be great!! and maybe if you had extra zebra fabric left you could make a cute barrette to match that has a pink flower in the center. Maybe similar to these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=mt&listing_id=24945956 http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=mt&listing_id=24838384  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=mt&listing_id=23695932

You guys are all seriously expanding my head. I got to be a hot new topic for the first time and had to call my mom and husband. Yes, in that order, I know who cares more. My daughter and her little girlfriend were so thrilled to see themselves on the computer, and even more so to be read all the comments on them being cute. I think their heads are bigger than mine now.
I am just in love with the zebra print dress and have a ton of the fabric sitting here that I think I'm going to have to cut into. I feel so into black and white and hot pink/teal right now, so that's where I'm heading. I am glad so many people agree about the ribbon, I was hesitant to add it because I always feel like simple is better and I don't really like kids clothes that go too far with the cute. Maybe that's just me.
The pirate pixie skirt was about the easiest bit of nothing I've ever sewn, and I just loved the way it came out. It made me feel much better to see a good response to it, because, since I know how quick, cheap, and easy it was, it's easy to look at it as not much of something, you know?
Anyways, thank you all so much!

Great dresses and cute girls....I would definitely add not pink ribbon to the zebra dress I think that will totally make it one of the favorites in the closet.   Smiley

OH MY GOSH they are just so adorable......I love the pirate skirt, and the model is just too cute, lol!

The dresses are fantastic and your daughter is so lucky to have such a fabulous summer wardrobe, and definately add a hot pink band to the zebra one it would really finish it off.

Good job!
