21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Test ensemble on: October 30, 2009 07:10:05 AM

 Here's my latest sewingproject and my first time ever making childrens clothing. Its an ensemble (pants and sweater) for my cousins nephew.

Its going to be a christmas present, and I have bought a fleece fabric for making the real thing, but made this "test ensemble" out of old sheets. I was supposted to keep it as a test version, but now that its finished I'm considering giving it a way anyhow. What do you think? Is the fabric to bright?

I've used a Burda pattern (9716), adding elastic band at the sleeves and legs. The sheets are in cotton.

What do you think?

C&C most welcome!

Hi Smiley Thanks for the compliments on the clothing!

About the top:

javarose:I didnt use a pattern, but sort of made it up along the way. The draping is simply done at the doll after making the hole for the head in the fabrics. I found the midpoint and started pinning up folds with a fingers width outwards. then i folded and stitched around the neckline. I am considering making some more to give away for christmas presents, in that case I am happy to make a tutorial if you guys are interested:)

Marie: I thought the same when I saw it on the doll after finishing it- but it turns out that when I am wearing it some of the "headhole" (whats it called? Wink) is falling down at my back, leaving a "V" shape at my back so that it doesnt fall off.

The fabric for the skirt is bought at "stoff og stil", originally a Danish consept that has opened stores in Norway. They have a webshop at www.stoffogstil.no, but I dont know if they ship stuff over the pond or how expensive that would turn out to be:-[ Also the page is in Norwegian so contact by mail might be a good idea if you are interested.

Marie: Ah, so you have experienced the drinking culture of maskinteknikk. They are truly comitted to give newbies at uni a rather elaborating lesson in Norwegian "water of life" and how to consume as much as possible of it at shortest possible time! I can assure you that we are not all like that:) - At least not all of the time Wink If you're ever in Trondheim again- please give notice Smiley

Thank you Cheesy 
- I really do love those colours and think they're kind of "springy".

The brown cluster is actually an elastic band with spangels and gauze (I dont know if that is the usual words for it I had to look it up in my dictionary, hehe Roll Eyes) and I was going to use it as a belt but it didnt look good at all, so I sewed it together like a rose and attached it to the dress.

For now I have sewn it on with a few light stitches, but I am considering getting a safety-pin backing on it:)
