3  ribbing question.. in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by punikum on: August 04, 2008 08:55:03 PM
my question is for the following pattern (From Ottobrre) - is calls for ribbing, and I'm not sure what it is? a different colour of knit fabric? a special band?
I want to start working on my daughters' fall clothes... this looks easy enough, if only I know what they mean...

4  more NL 6613 in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by punikum on: August 02, 2008 08:40:54 PM
I love this pattern :-)
this time I made the exact same dress for my daughter and my niece.  my niece is is 9 YO, so I made the largest size for her and it fit!
in the picture her dress is not finished yet - bacuse I needed to see that it fit and that there was no need to lengthen it...
anyway - they are both happy :-)
my daughter:

and my niece (I finished her dress with a white bias tape - my sister didn;t like the red finish on my daughter's dress)

I don;t have any more of this fabric left :-(

5  nice top - simlicity pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by punikum on: August 02, 2008 08:36:37 PM
I don't recall the number of the pattern, but I've this top before in polka dots, which I can;t wear. now I made it with more wearable fabric, except it's very poor quality, it wrinkles as I sit! this sohould teach me not to but the cheapest fabric in the store :-)
anyway - I made the neck as instructed and then thought I'd like to better it if was black - with a bias tape, but it didn;t come out right because I already sewed the neck band... but it's not too bad I think. Let me know what you think...

6  S3732 - shirt - are there dress codes for women???? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by punikum on: July 26, 2008 08:35:57 PM
First, thanks so much to MacesMeMe for the great explanantions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I made the shirt without a problem! :-)
Now, as much as I lovee it, and I intend to make at least one more like it - I showed the shirt to my sisters yesterday and they both said I can;t go with that... the colours are all wrong (too childish).
Is there a rule for a women in her 30s to wear only boring prints?Huh?? I don;t feel that OLD!!!!
really, would you wear this print?

(I used black bias tape,because I sisn;t have a better colour - next time I make the shirt I'll make sure the colour is right)

7  my new 6613 :-) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by punikum on: July 22, 2008 09:38:45 PM
well - I promised my 5 years old a new dress... and couldn;t resist 6613. thanks for everyone that helped me :-)
I decided the fabric is busy enough and didn;t need embalishments... at least not for the first try.
now that i see that it fits (well - slightly too big, but It';s OK, it's for next year....) I'll make more!
here it is:

and -

thanks again!

8  first successfull shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by punikum on: July 12, 2008 11:25:50 AM
well, this is my first fitting shirt! took me so long... (and four tries). this is a fabric I planned for my girls' dresses, but since I didn;t want to waist more expensive fabric, I used this.
I don't know if it'll be a work shirt, because of the colours, but at least it fits! (well, it dosen;t look as nice on me as it does in the picture in the pattern, but that's probably my fault.. I just don's have that body)
the pattern is NL 6294. I'm planning to make it again in a more solid fabric, and then off to another shirt :-)
I had som eissues with hemming the sleeves... since they are curved, hemming them (I folded them twice and stitched) was very difficult. is there any other way???
the pictures are

thanks for looking!

9  first Ottober pattern in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by punikum on: June 28, 2008 08:42:11 PM
made it for my 18 monthes old. actually - I planned making something else for my first Ottobre pattern, but had to delay it since I didn;t find the right fabric...
anyhow - I still need to add bloomers.
this is from 2/2005 issue. I had some problems - the skirt should have been wider - but I didn;t have enough of the pink fabric so I shorted the bands a lot. also - the pink fabric is kind of stiff, and when I took out the thread I used foe the gathering, it left tiny holes in the fabric. never happened to me before...
this is the third dress pattern I ever made... and she's real happy with it :-)

I hope I understood how to upload the pictures...

thanks for looking!
