2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dance costumes - Done!! on: May 03, 2011 08:34:35 AM
I made these costumes for the three-year-old class at my daughter's dance studio. I've been doing costumes for a long time and these have to be my favorite ever. I love all the colors!

There are more details on my blog as well as the costumes for their second dance and the outfits I made for the lone boy in the class.


Thanks for looking! Comments and suggestions are always appreciated.

Wow! You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good. Thanks so much for all your nice comments and encouragement!

Spicecarrie: I actually used McCalls 5414 because that skirt is a circle instead of an oval and she didn't want wide hips. (Fine by me, I didn't want to make paniers!) I left off the obnoxious bows, raised the neckline to minimize the cleavage since she's only 12, and used grommets instead of zipper but otherwise we stayed pretty true to the pattern. Oh, and I used the fabric for the sleeve instead of the two layers of lace.

Those are awesome! I seriously thought the thumbnail pic was a photo of actual Lego guys, not your costumes. You nailed it - great job!
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Elizabeth Swann's Gold Dress from Pirates (lots 'o pics) on: November 07, 2010 12:28:59 AM
My daughter loves Elizabeth's gold dress from the first Pirates movie so this year for Halloween we decided to recreate it.

The skirt got smooshed against the column in this pic, but you can see from the others how full it was. She's got two petticoats under there.

I embroidered and beaded the front:

The back closes with a double row of grommets for the criss-cross look. But I deliberately made it too big this year so she can wear it again and we doubled up the grommets.

This was such a fun costume to make, one of my favorites ever by far!

Waiting for Will. Just so long as he brings Captain Jack along for me  Grin

Thanks for looking.

You need to make the darts in both layers.

By the way, the link goes to the completed projects board, but not to a particular dress.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Flower Fairy costume help!! on: September 27, 2010 09:25:26 PM
My 10-yr-old has asked for this dress for Halloween this year.

I've been planning it out and think I'm up to the challenge, but I need some input on the hems. What is the best way to make them stand out like that so they resemble petals? I was thinking either horsehair braid or millinery wire (or a combo of the two) but is there another, better way?


ETA: I know about the fishing line or lettuce edge techniques but I'm hoping for bigger ripples.
