These are adorable! Is it alright for people over 10 to wear them?


If you can find a big enough shirt, I say, go for it!!

I love them both!  This is a style that I really like!  I think the second one gets pushed over the top by the piecework hemline.  Just a single polka dot fabric might tone it down a smidge, but keep the crazy fun vibe that you have going.  Awesome!

I turned this boring old boys button down into a cutie skirt for my little princess.  Easy, peasy and only took about 20 minutes.  Want one?

Here is a link to the tutorial - http://katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com/2009/07/between-projects.html
although I know you crafty folks can figure this one out on your own!   Cheesy

I use soil separator paper to trace Ottobre and BWOF patterns, and actually all of my regular patterns, too.  It is about 20 dollars for a 100 yard roll at the hardware store.  It is as sheer as tissue, but more sturdy and drapes more like fabric so it is easier to tissue fit.  You can get some here - http://www.carriff.com/Products/sewing-fabric.htm.  I blogged about it a while back as well http://katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com/search/label/soil%20separator
Happy drafting!

The shorts do run really big!  DS is finally wearing the size 2, and he'll be three next month.  The collar is folded under (I skip the snipping) to create a clean edge to sew down.  You can either hand stitch it to the rest of the shirt or you can stitch in the ditch from the underside.  Otherwise you end up with the collar sewn not all the way round.  Does that make sense?

I just saw this - http://www.flickr.com/photos/30290613@N03/3614783676/in/pool-childrensfashion on flickr.  It is pretty pirate/princess?

I just finished the McCalls circle yoke dress.  The directions for attaching the yoke are ridiculously fussy.  Also, that version features a zipper at center back, which does affect the way that you can attach it.  Basically, you stitched the facings and yoke together except where the dress attached, then sew the dress to the yoke,, sew the shoulder seams, then flip over the facing and hand stitch it all around.  Yuck!  I blogged about it http://katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com/2009/06/mccalls-5568.html and my mom added a comment that was actually helpful, so check that, too.

Thanks for the tutorial! I went to your blog and your video did actually help!!! Thanks!!  Wink I think this is a great tutorial for the curveacious sewers like myself!

Thank you!  I am not a fan of any extra fluff myself - I think that there is enough already there.

sdhrt - I do like 4203.  It is a very basic short pattern with just two pieces and a cased elastic waistband.  My mods were all to the waistband and for style - none to the fit.  They are a fairly full short.  I made three pair, one for a very round crawler in diapers, one for a tall slim walker in diapers and one for a tall, thin preschooler who is no longer in diapers.  They fit all three girls well and looked cute.
