The gingham is adorable, but the curled up baby toes and feet are beyond. And I don't think it's too tablecloth-y. It's wonderful.

Absolutely lovely kimono, and the fabric is amazing. Now I want to go fabric shopping again... Cheesy
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Japanese Butterfly Skirt on: October 19, 2010 03:55:19 AM
So I got in an order I just didn't know if I could fulfill... the lady saw the punk rock twirly skirt I made for a friend of hers, and contacted me about a skirt, but then she told me that she wanted it to be pink. And green. And pastel. And not skully or scary. Those are just things I don't really do. Buuuut.... my incrediblazing local fabric shop came to the rescue. I went in looking for something pastel and polka dotty, because boy oh boy, nothing in my stash is pastel. And this popped into view, like a vision from God.

I think I may have heard a chorus of angels. Or that might have been Japanese elevator music being pumped in. Whatever.
So... I turned it into a circle skirt, adding in a waistband in my very favorite green cherry blossom fabric that managed to match like they were from the same collection (which, given that one was a couple years ago at Joann's and one is a current local fabric, I'm doubting).

I borrowed one of my mini Bird's friends for a model; she's 2 years older and a bit bigger than the girl this was made for, but it gives an idea:

(and I think it'll be a big hit, given that I had to practically pry her out of it)

I agree that there was no need to ask anyone to keep it sweet - your daughter has a fantastic eye for design, both putting together fabrics and flattering shapes and cuts. The color, by the way, is just perfect for her, and I think your husband picked the perfect dress for ya'll to make. Emily - I'm looking forward to seeing you on PR one of these days, keep it up!

Your dress is super cute, but I love Billy and his mad modeling skillz... The color is lovely on him.
I think he's my second favorite Craftster model EVER - second only to lil_abi's husband, for obvious reasons.  Grin

Thank you, I loved it, too, and she's worn it 4 times since RR Day. I think it'll be pink soon if she doesn't find a new favorite!

The skirt is fantastic (all of it is cute, but wow on the skirt). I think I might have to make a longer, full-skirt version of that. Thanks for the info on the leaves!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Decorated Onesies on: October 15, 2010 07:16:37 AM
I have been wanting to do the onesie decorating party for the longest! I especially love the captain one, btw, but I'm a sucker for anything nautical, it seems. It's incredibly cute, and I kinda want one in my size... :/

I LOVE your jacket! What a great look. And your daughter is adorable.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: TWEEN clothing!!!!! Huh? Where?? Really?!?! on: October 12, 2010 10:19:18 AM
What about slightly retro-styling? I'm thinking 50s/60s shaped cigarette pants, slim-fitting buttondown shirts, etc. When I'm not feeling like dressing girlie, that's the way I go. You can get a pretty good deal on some vintage patterns on etsy if you're willing to sift through the very expensive ones, and you'll have better luck finding ones that fit her body type with a minimum of altering if you go back to those decades (at least generally).
