1  a 2 piece pink ensemble (skirt and top ) with lot of pic in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by camelia22 on: April 01, 2008 10:58:57 AM
i made this ensamble for my niece this is the second time i have ever sew something,
the first time i made a halterdress and a skirt also for my niece (with tut)


i'm did my best to make something good out of it and it's actually turned out verry well, and that after considering it was my first time,
 i made two of this kind for each one of my nieces one with a little panda and a other one with a butterfly made out ironing jewels
(if they are being called like this )
i was first freakt out about de v line neck was scarred to death to make it
 but it acctually took me not even 15 min and that for a starter,
 i finished both ensambles in less than six hours
so enough said here are the pic and thnx for looking.

ok first off all Im not that good in English so forgive me my righting mistakes,
second I have never made a tutorial so be patient with me hahaha
but I made a lot of pic and hope that makes sense
first of all you must measure the chest and the length of the dress,
I used my own pattern and that means I had a lot of math to do,
and god knows I hate math anyway,
I got a big piece of paper and made a straight line as big as the size of her chest from the back,
than I measured her waist, and how much cm there is between her waist and chest before I made a line there to,
 after that I measured out the length ass you guys all wil prodict now i made there a line to  Grin I know a lot of lines and a lot of math like I said,
after I finished that I just had to follow the lines kind of like painting with numbers,
after that I began with the front and because I all ready had the back,
I just had to trace it a second time,
 but don't forget to shorten up the dress from upstairs about 6 cm because you will still have to make the chest of the dress separately,
you will now cut out the dress and get a piece like this from the back,
but don't forghet to cut ou a cm or two extra so you cane sew it later,
(beceause i forhet that ones Embarrassed )  
 i used about a half meter of fabric to make this dress it was for a six year old

and a piece like this from the front if you look closely,
 this part of the front is shorter from above that means the chest isn't so high ass the back beceause you still have to make the chest

you will now make a pattern in this form

you just have to thake the measurment of the chest and put a cople of cm with it,
beceause you will have to make the chest crossover,
you must experiment yourself how cross over you want the chest to be i hope it still makes any sense,
you will than have a piece like this .

now you have to make the straps i made four of them,
tw off them were 4 and half cm width and about 40 cm long,
and the two other were  4 and half cm width and i made the length just as long as the outside piece that means the piece for the armholes off the chest here above

I start with the strap pieces. You will do this with each of the 4 strap pieces. On one of the short sides I fold it up about 1/4 of an inch, wrong sides together (I iron all my folds). Then I fold the long side in half, wrong sides together. Open that up so you are left with a crease then fold the two edges of the long side to meet the crease you just made. And then fold once more so the edges are all inside.


now you cane sew the straps to the chest pieces just like this,


after you finishd it must look like this picture as you see the shorter strap is on the side of the armholes

if you finishd both of the chest pieces you cane sew them to the front side off the top like this


after that you just have to sew the two pieces togheter and you're done
and this has to come out off it if everything went well
