91  Even More Twirls, Ruffles and Cuteness Galore! Check them out! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by kaymadben on: September 26, 2007 10:56:43 PM
A Few More Dresses I've been making. I have tons and tons more to show you but dd got tired of modeling. Trust me...2 hours, 3 dresses, 2 extra kids running around and 500 pictures later...all for 10 good pics. So here they are.

And one of my favs. It has bible verses all over the skirt and the ten commandments on bodice and bottom ruffle. We go to church a few times a week and my daughter loves Jesus so she loves this one too.

And one of my son mid-blow with the bubbles! For every 50 dresses I make for dd, I make ONE outfit for son Huh I need cute boy patterns. I hate appliqueing, hate collared shirts, blah blah blah and love dresses Grin

And she's pooped exhausted.

AHHHHH! My reward!

And one last pic I took I just thought was cool...

Thanks for looking. All comments, tips, suggestions and praises are welcomed!

And if you have any ideas on good ways to take good pics of kids please please let me know. They got tired real quick of hunting Easter Eggs (in september hehe) and blowing bubbles.

These were all made using New Look patterns. They were pretty cheap at Walmart. Like 3.00 or cheaper. I have over 300 kids patterns and only use a few of them I guess because they are my favorites and I hate cutting the patterns out. So here they are:

Ring around the Rosie Dress: NL 6613 View F

Next 2 dresses: NL 6502 (the purple dress I used the bodice and just 2 big squares for the dress part)

Next 2 outfits: NL 6689 (they both have matching hats but she hates hats.)

Then the skirt and jacket I already posted the patterns used. These are all super easy patterns. The first one I cut out and made all in about 3 hours. The ruffles took the longest. About 12 feet of ruffles to iron the hem down, then press in and iron again, then ruffle and gather, then sew on. That took the most part of it. Hope this helps.

93  Twirls, Ruffles and Tons of Cuteness Galore! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by kaymadben on: September 14, 2007 08:33:13 AM
I've been sewing up a storm. I mean what else am I going to do right? I just learned how to sew last summer and have been wondering what in the heck I did for the 24 years before that. Must have been a pretty boring life without all these ruffles, twirls and cuteness. On with the pics. Hope you like!

First is a ring around the rosie halter dress. I got 4 yds of this fabric at gar sale for a quarter...YEAH!!

Next is my most fav of all. My mom bought this curtain at G-will that would have went perfect in her living room. Well when I saw it all these twirly images started going through my head and that was that.

And I posted this before but wasn't a great pic. This was 2 pairs of pillowcases which I got all together for a quarter at gar sale.

This fabric was 8.99 a yd at joanns and I had 40% off coupon. That is the most I've ever spent on fabric. Thank goodness it only took a yd and a half.

Heres one same pattern but fabric was 4 yds for 1.99 at G-will and I made it a dress instead of top.

Ok heres my first skirt I made using this tute: http://houseonhillroad.typepad.com/photos/twirly_skirt/twirly_skirt_024_1_1.html
So easy. I made a matching belt to go with it. I planned on appliqueing the shirt but figured she could wear it with something else too. I got the tank and 4 others in pink, blue, orange, and red at walmart for 2.00 each.

And heres a matching jacket I made using this vintage pattern:

Okay and she is done taking pics. I had to bribe her with ice cream sandwiches to get these pics. And all the dresses are pretty twirly but she had about 2 feet to twirl around on top of my computer desk. Hope you all are having as much fun sewing ruffles and twirls as I am! God Bless!

94  My Cheytown Dresses and other Creations! IMG HVY in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by kaymadben on: August 27, 2007 08:15:54 AM
Heres a few of my cheytown recons. I have about 15 shirts already cut up ready to do more. Thanks so much Cheytown! You Rock!

that last one is made with a very vintage hawaiian shirt I found for 10 cents at a garage sale, then later after I made the dress found out that brand of shirt sells for like 200+ dollars on ebay. I left the tag in the back of the dress. You think it will still sell? hehe

and a few other dresses I've made

matching hat:

(this was made out of 2 pairs of pillowcases I got for 50 cents for both. It has matching pants and hat too.

And my son with his one lonesome outfit I made him. It's just more fun sewing for girls right? I have tons more, but as you can see my dd does not like taking pics so I will try to get some more posted later when she's in the photo shooting mood. Anybody have any suggestions on getting kids to take pics? Suckers maybe? ChuckECheese perhaps? LOL.
