1  Upcycled dresses for froggy school in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: May 23, 2010 04:54:03 AM
My beautiful neice who I don't get to see anywhere near enough started daycare recently, she calls it froggy school because there is a big frog on the sign.

I made up these dresses for her out of second hand shirts...some mine, some from a second hand shop. Pattern by Lil Blue Boo Sienna Dress. They are very bright and she loves them.

My sister (her Mother) works in a studio so she got these pics for me.
Be prepared for cuteness overload ( not that I am biased or anything Cheesy )

Thanks for looking!!!

2  A new skirt and a photo shoot in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: May 07, 2010 05:45:33 AM
I am absolutely loving making these tiered skirts!!
I love all the colour/ fabric combos you can come up with and they use hardly any of the more expensive fabrics because you use plain coloured cottons for the larger sections.

Here is my beautiful girl modeling for me..

and you can't even see the skirt in this one but it was just too cute to leave out!

Thanks so much for looking!

3  The impulsive dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by BecMalcomson on: March 21, 2010 08:19:06 PM
I was planning on wearing a perfectly good green dress to my uncles wedding when I spotted this beautiful material in Spotlight and decided with 2 days, no free time, and hardly any experience making adults clothes, I would make my own dress!

This dress evolved as it went, it started off with full batwing style sleeves

but then after adding a full circle skirt (not yet hemmed in these pics) I thought it was just too much fullness ( and made me look like a big marshmellow) and pulled the sleeves in for a more grecian style sleeve.

I added a zipper in the back but it was a light purple so I put the big bow over the top to hide it a bit.

Sorry I don't have great pictures, but here are a couple of action shots from the wedding, I don't have one on my own so here are my sisters and my brother too for your viewing pleasure Tongue

Thanks for looking!

4  Personalised pressies for a birthday boy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: March 02, 2010 09:54:21 PM
A very sweet little friend of mine turned one today and I decided to make him some personalized shirts following some brilliant tutorials on MADE.

This is what I ended up with....

i only made the grey shirt and bought the other two as blank shirts, I used Dana's 90 minute shirt tute on MADE, It was fun and easy! Now that I have a new overlocker!! *Swoon*Find it here...

I did the "MUM" using felt ironed down using wonder-under and stitching with black thread.

The Uno shirt was also inspired by a freezer stencil Dana made. I did it onto a separate piece of  white material and sewing it onto the shirt with a zig zag stitch.Then stitched in all the black details. Very fitting since the little recipient was turning one today.
Find Dana's freezer stencil tutorial here...
I used the freezer paper stencil technique for the white one as well.

 I found this image on line for Mack trucks and the Birthday Boy's name is Mack. So it was perfect!

Sorry not too much sewing in this sewing post but hope you liked them anyway!
Thanks for looking!

6  Girls skirt to very girly dress. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: January 14, 2010 10:21:01 PM
Hey there beautiful craftsters!

This is another attempt at a Disney P dress. Her tute found here:

It was a girls size 12 skirt found at a second hand shop for $1, but I had to cut it down quite a bit so you could easily use a smaller size to make it for a one year old like I did. It made the sweetest, girliest little dress ever.
Really easy to do! Thanks to my little bean for modeling!

Thanks for looking!

8  Shabby Chic dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: December 11, 2009 04:37:52 PM
Hi there beautiful craftsters,

Just wanted to show you all my newest dress. Its so sweet and simple, and nice and cool for my little bean cause it is sooooo hot here!!!

Pretty basic a-line shape with a ruffle along the bottom, a braided detail along the top and tie strings. Finished off with a cute ruffley flower. I left some of the edges unfinished so it will fray a little over time. Anyway here is some pics thanks to my sweet little model Smiley

Thanks for looking!

9  My DisneyP dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: November 01, 2009 09:30:05 PM
Thankyou to the very talented DisneyP for her fantastic skirt to dress tute.

Here is my version. Size 12 girls skirt from Vinnies (op shop) Cut down to make a gorgeous little dress. I cut the material for the sleeves off another second hand top. I was going to make them a little smaller but my boys decided they looked like wings, so they are staying!

(She is crawling now, so I have to take her pic in the cot or she just runs away)

The dress was detailed enough so I didnt put the little pick ups in, but I bought a few more skirts that will definately be getting them!

OK I promise to stop flooding the board with my posts...for now Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

10  Little Bird dress and tutu. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BecMalcomson on: November 01, 2009 08:45:48 PM
Hey there beautiful craftsters,

I have made a couple of these dresses from Little bird patterns, but given them away as gifts so I just have one left to show you. Its such a pretty dress! and for my daughter who is 10mths, it only costs me about $4 (Aus) to make one. Cheap Cheap Cheap!! The original pattern had tie straps so I altered it a little to make button straps. I love this fabric, it looks like old fashioned birdcages, but is a little floral design.

This photo shows how full the skirt is.

and the only thing I sewed on this tutu was the elastic, but I thought I would put it on anyway Smiley

Thanks for looking!
