1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Tulle Time! on: September 14, 2011 07:13:20 PM
I'm always on here looking at what people make and getting ideas of things to try while I teach myself to sew. My daughter saw this skirt, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298574.0  and told me she had to have one, so I made one.






I am happy with it and so is my daughter but I thought it would look cute a bit shorter and fuller so I did both layers from the original tute, left out the ruffle hem, and used a ribbon sewn to a piece of elastic in the waistband.





I LOVE how this one came out, and while I doubt I'll be going anywhere near tulle again for quite awhile, I think I could do even better if I ever made one again.
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Any advice before I completely destroy my costume? on: October 27, 2010 10:18:54 AM
I bought a costume for my Latin Halloween party on Saturday assuming from the measurements on the package that it would fit. Wrong. The main piece is a dress that does up in the back with 5 velcro closures. The top 3 come together with room to spare, the 4th one closes perfect and the bottom one doesn't even come close.
I put it on inside out and had my hubby take some measurements for me. At the bottom closure I need 4" for it to fit, tapering up to the next bit of velcro which is roughly 6" above.
Ideally I'd like to take out the velcro and add a zipper but I don't know how to add fabric so the bottom closes. I also marked where the top bits need to be taken in which I can do easily after the zip is in.
Any suggestions?
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 52 ENTRIES / Princess outfit complete with princess on: July 07, 2010 11:50:43 AM
This is my first challenge entry but hopefully not my last. I saw this sheet at the thrift store and thought it would make cute Pj's. When I got it home my daughter told me it was princess fabric so I decided to make her a summer outfit with it.

Here is the front:



The back:



A closer look at the back of the shirt:




I'm not sure what to tell you about it other than I made the pants by tracing out an existing pair that fit her well and the top is just kinda put together by trial and error (more error though).
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I did it! Duct tape double. on: June 18, 2010 11:00:49 AM
I finally convinced my husband to help me make the duct tape dress form. I am thrilled with how perfect the measurements are, even if it looks a bit wonky! Now I just have to wait for him to help me figure out how to mount it!



What do you guys think?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Finally got the courage to post on: April 16, 2010 09:13:44 AM
I've been hanging around here for months while I teach myself to sew and figure it's about time I share something.
This is a halter and skirt set I made for my daughter out of an oversized womens plaid vest.


So what do you think?
