3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: EURO Style on: May 15, 2008 12:11:03 AM
I'm from the UK and I totally agree.  A small bit of lace around a pair of socks is as frilly as most girls will go, any more and yeah, you'd prob hear complaints!

If you want an idea of clothing that is available for kids in the UK, check out Adams or Pumpkin Patch. There is a big focus on practical, easy to wash etc though things are slowing getting prettier and more complicated. Trousers with frills are pretty unheard of here - though jeans and patterned leggings are quite popular.

But if Eurostyle isn't what we wear in Europe - still leaves the question of what it actually is!

Ooh, are you talking about smocking? I had thought about doing something like that, but I don't think I shirred tightly enough for that to work properly...hmm, maybe I'll make another that I'll do tighter.

Thanks again Cheesy

Yes! That's the word! Cheesy
It's great to hear that shirring is doable and fun, I will def give it a go after my exams are done with - with pretty much one a day for the next two weeks I sadly don't have any time for myself. xP

Ooh I love this! Very summery. Smiley
I bought a shirred top recently and was hoping to try my hand at shirring something similar. 
As for adding more interest, I think its cute as it is now, but my top has this interesting addition you might be interested in.  They have basically threaded and looped some thicker thread (almost like a very thin wool tbh) through the shirred stiches to make a subtle pattern.  I'll try and find a photo, I'm afraid I don't know the technical term.
Does anyone else know what I'm on about? ^^;;

EDIT: Might be faggotting..? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Featherstitch

I think one or two buttons would look cute. Smiley

It's a lovely shirt - very flattering shape!

Thinning the paint is a really good idea - Why didn't I think of that? XD
Many thanks for that tip, next time I think that would improve the dodgy paint texture on mine. Smiley

Ooh I like the snake. ^^
How big is it? Some of the lettering looks pretty small!

I painted a 2.5 inch Qee a while back (if you are interested) and I feel your pain!  I went for big  simple block colours and I still had to redo some of the edges.

What kind of paint did you use? I used acrylics and I found I didn't get a very smooth surface (although I am quite a newbie with paint) - yours looks like it was more successful. Smiley

Thanks for the comments and suggestion.
Do you mean just solid black, nothing else?

Black with the musical notes fabric as an accent would look pretty sharp.  After all - it is for an ipod. ^_^
