Thanks guys!

Super cute! She looks like she had a lot of fun modeling for you!

You said you only have enough to make one more thing from this fabric, what about a small clutch or zippered pouch for yourself? That way you have something for mom too?

It's funny you should say that, she actually really disliked it!  She kept tugging at it and saying 'off off' throughout the day.  So I really should make something for myself, she might not wear it again!  Roll Eyes

Great job and lovely story!  I like all the different embellishments you added  Smiley
13  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Aviary top with butterfly sleeves on: April 13, 2009 10:18:16 AM
I wanted to make something a little bit dressier for my dd to wear to an Easter party but she spends a lot of time rough-housing with her brother (or any other unfortunate child within her reach) and generally being a tomboy so I didn't want to go the full-dress route.  Plus it was an outdoor party and it's still pretty cold here.  So in the end I made another swing top (sigh...), but made very gathered butterfly sleeves to dress it up a bit.  I couldn't find a tute for the butterfly sleeves so I winged it (pardon the pun) and despite them being maybe a bit too sticky-outy I really liked the way they looked. I love this fabric (and sadly only have enough for one more thing  Cry) and it reverses to red with tiny white dots.

Thanks for looking, feedback always appreciated!  Smiley

Hi there, what fabric are you using?  If it is a thin fabric I would do 2 times the width and a stitch length of 4 (3 if really thin like lawn).  If it was a thicker fabric I would use 1 and a half final width and a maximum stitch length.  You can always tighten the shirring with a steam blast from the iron if its too loose!

I really like it, good job!  Don't think that you should admit the pleats on the shoulders were a mistake, they look perfect!  Smiley

I'm curious what stitch you used for your hemming?  It looks really nice.

I'm so jealous - I want an IKEA near me!!  I was all ready to order a bunch online one time, when I finally figured out that though they LIST them all online, they do not SELL them online.  GRRR.  One day . . .

That happened to me too!  The IKEA isn't exactly that close, I have to take two buses each way.  That's why I have to buy lots when I'm there *she tells herself*

Adult size, please!!!  Cheesy

I am psyching myself up to do an adult one for me.  I haven't figured out what to do about boobs though, I was going to post on the adult clothes board for advice!

These jackets are awesome!  Cheesy It makes me wish I had little girl...I would totally snag this pattern from you and promptly whip up 2 in every size.  Wink

That made me laugh, thanks!

LOVE these.  That orange and black fabric is making me swoon.  Fantastic job!

It's IKEA, my one stop fabric shop.  Smiley
