1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 3 FIRST ALL IN ONE DRESS on: November 23, 2009 07:28:11 AM
This is the first patchwork dress for me, also the first buttonholes and the first applique.
I think it turned out okay considering.  I probably made at 100 button holes before I got it close to right.  There are things I know to do different next time.  The bodice is a little big, but it fits ok.

Any suggestions welcome.

The blue strip in the back is because I forgot to leave room for the buttons and I was out of the green, I think it is ok.

I don't really like the yellow top under it, that was the only one I had on hand.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute little punky outfit on: November 16, 2009 09:51:24 AM
This is a little outfit I did for my granddaughter.  My daughter wanted her to have something that was way out there to were to a birthday party.  She was at home so I did not have a model.  

She did look cute with it on.  .

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Patch work dress ??? on: November 12, 2009 09:28:25 AM
I want to make a parchwork dress and I am wondering how to make the inside of the dress where the patches are sewn together look neat.  I do not have a serger to make my seams look neat.  Do I need to line the inside. 

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Very simple dress on: November 03, 2009 11:19:05 AM
This is a very simple dress I made for my Granddaughter.  It was fabric I had left over and it was just enough.  I wanted to do wider fixed shoulder straps, but I could never get them to set right, so now they tie.

I did not like the black shirt under it, I think white would look pretty good.

Thanks, any feed back would be great.  I am a beginner so I want all advice.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / short notice need idea on: September 30, 2009 01:41:13 PM
My 23 year old very petite daughter wants me to make her a Auburn tigers dress for this weekend. LOL.

I have the fabric, but does anyone know of a very simple dress that would be suitable for this.  I don't have but 3 days. LOL and I am a beginner.  I do pretty well but it takes me a while.  If it was not for the dreaded seam ripper I would be out of luck.

Any ideas?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pattern instructions on: September 28, 2009 09:06:17 AM
I don't know if anyone else has ask this, but do you think pattern instructions are always the way to go.  I was making a top and the instructions said to sew the shoulders together on the front and back pieces.  Then I was suppose to sew the lining of the front and back neck.  This seemed very awkward,  I would think it would be easier to sew the lining on first then sew the front and back shoulders together.  Does anyone know why it should have to be done the pattern way.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / MY first recon dress on: September 25, 2009 01:06:36 PM
I am new to this forum, but have been lurking for a while.  I saw a dress recon and just had to try it.
I found a man's button shirt at a thrift store, it was our football teams colors.

My 14 month old granddaughter has inspired me to start sewing.

I cut the dress out from the shirt, cut it too small so I added side panels, the top was a little big so I added elastic.  My sweetie is never still so getting good measurements is impossible.  I made the sleeves with the man's shirt sleeves.

She will be the only little one with this Auburn dress.

I hope my pictures show up, I am still not sure how to get them here from the photo gallery.

I got my fingers crossed that they show up.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / sewing the crotch. help on: September 24, 2009 02:02:56 PM
Hi, I am new here have been looking for a while, this is a great forum.

I do have a question, I have just got the sewing bug back.  My first granddaughter has inspired me.

does anyone have a good tip on sewing the crotch in a pair of pants.  I understand about having a pant leg right side and one wrong, but they still look funny.  Any tips would be great.
