I love this so much!  I have my little people A-frame house on top of my fridge.  It is about 35 years old.   But I lost all my people.  I am so jealous!

Those are adorable!  Both of my daughters were preemies, so I am parital to teeny tiny babies.  My oldest weighed only 741 grams (1 lb 10 oz.)  My mom made all of her gowns when she came home at 4 lb.  Preemie clothes in stores are usually made for what we called "faux preemies" - 5-6 lb babies!  Those will be priceless for teh little man.  I will keep him in my  thoughts & prayers.

Maybe there is something I am not seeing, hence the strips in the last post.  But to me it looks almost just like the peasant tops I have been making my girls.  I used a tutorial by vegbee in the Kids clothing boards.  Here's the link.  I think you could adjust the measurements to make it fit an adult.  I have thought of making one for myself, but haven't gotten around to it yet.  It is the easiest shirt you will ever make.  It takes about 30 minutes.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: elastic waist question on: June 16, 2008 08:35:06 AM
I used to always take off 1 inch for the waist.  But lately I have done that & it ends up being huge in the waist.  I think the elastic I am using is stretching a lot while I am putting it in the casing (pulling through with a safety pin).  So I have started subtracting 4 inches or so.  I bought a big bunch of elastic, & I guess it stretches out worse, it was cheaper.  So I think with better elastic you can reduce by less.  I remeasure the waist of the garment after I have put the elastic in to see if it has stretched, that gives me something to go by, since I know what my final waist measurement needs to be ( 2 inches less than waist measurement for my skinny daughter & 1 inch less for my more husky daughter)

They look just like your inspiration.  And by the way, it made me nauseous looking at your finger!  And I don't normally have a weak stomach.  I guess that is one of my greatest fears.

I  love that fabric.  I love roses & the shabby chic look.  Great choice for this special dress.

I noticed that this post is a few days old, not no replies.  I don't think to check this part of the forum very often.  I will offer my opinion.  I made my DD a pair of shorts from the cut off legs of older DDs pants this week.  I used an overlock stitch on my janome machine.  But I think you could make a nice pair by finishing the seams with a zigzag.  Just take a pair of shirts that fit her, & fold in the crotch & lay them flat, use that to make a pattern by.  Just ad seam allowance wher needed.  I saw a post of the kids completed projects board the other day that had a tutorial for "10 minute trousers."  That would help more than my sorry instructions probably.  Or the easiest thing to do would be do find patterns on sale for 0.99 & buy a plain pajamam pant pattern & shorten it.  That is how I started making shorts when I began sewing.  Hope this helps, but I think you are on the right track.  Sounds like they will be comfy & cute.

So cute!  I've recently become addicted to yo-yos! There are so many different things you can do with them and they are super easy to make.
I'd love for you to share some of your ideas.  I am becoming addicted to them too!  

way cute!  do you use interfacing behind the embellishments?
I use Wonder Under/Heat Bond under the applique.  I used a tear away interfacing under the bike.  It keeps the tshirt from stretching when you sew.  I didn't use anything behind the rick-rack, but it wouldn't hurt to use some next time.  I like the tear away because after I'm done I just rip it off, so  it doesn't add bulk to their shirt.
