This is my first post so I got lots of things to show.  I mostly sew for my girls so this is all baby and kid clothes.  Here are a few things I've sewn in the last few months.

I made this Frida dress for my baby LaRue:

Here she is wearing it:

This is a peasant top I made with one of my favorite fabrics for my baby girl:

Here is a crossover top and pants I made:

And a crossover top and circle skirt I made for my 5 y.o. Chlo:

A baby shoe, with pleather for the sole, twill for the top, lined with brushed denim, and foldover elastic for the straps.

I make baby pouches (the baby carrier) for a living, but this is one I made for myself:

A drop-waist dress with this great comic book cotton knit, it's a little big on her:

And a shirred dress that I made for my neice, who loved it, yay.

Aww, those clothes are so cute and so are your girls.  Grin The Frida dress and polka dot shoes are my favorites.

Those are all FANTASTIC.
Seriously, those are some of the best looking, most wonderful children's clothes I have ever seen. That Frida dress is just beautiful. And your daughter looks so cute in it!
And the little shoe! That is so darling. Do you sell any of the clothes you make?

This is probably the most effusive reply I've ever posted here.... but in all honesty, these are some gorgeous clothes, and I hope my future kids will be as well dressed as yours.

(Also, I'm extremely envious of your bookshelf space.  Grin )

What quack said.  Times 2!

Where did you shop for fabric?  I love it all, but especially the Frieda dress fabric and the comic book.

Oh and your daughters are gorgeous!


it's a luscious mix of words and tricks...

 Quack ~ Yes, I do take orders for kids clothes.  I don't advertise it, but sometimes people see the clothes I make and pay me to make copies of them for their kids.  I'm actually in the middle of some orders right now.

Pleca ~ I'm so very lucky because I live in LA so I have the the downtown fabric district that I go to a lot.  And the two Asian floral knits in my post are from this fabric shop in the middle of nowhere, well to be precise, between LA and Anaheim.

Very lucky indeed!  Do you use a serger for your knits or do you everything on a regular machine?

Yes, I use a serger, and also when I sew knits I use a twin needle to hem everything, it gives it a better look and also the seams don't break when the knit is stretched (which would happen before I started using my twin needle).
