wow! that's really ingenious! and all very cute.

i hear ya on the beat-up kid stuff. my 2 year old doesn't take the time to oh, slow down before running into walls and doors, so she constantly looks like we've beaten her silly. i can't wait until she grows out of this phase!

They're adorable--especially the first set--and so is the wee one.  A couple of my nearest and dearest are Roller Queens too, my little chick wants skirts like theirs--green and black plaid mini kilts. 

Of course they have to have wee little uniforms! I made half of our uniform skirts:

 so I had to make her a little one as well! She even has her own name - Skater Tot, and # 110.5 (my number is 110) she calls the whole getup her skater tot.

Ignore the fact that it's too big and the hem is falling apart. This was at our first bout and I fixed both of those issues by the second  Cheesy

I ended up making 2 more of our skirts for the kids of my team mates. They look so cute together I could just pee.

That's beautiful! I'm always looking for cute recons that will hide my wide bra straps. I'd never thought of saving the sleeves like that. It's such a great idea!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Twirly good fun! And a pillowcase dress. on: July 19, 2007 08:18:12 AM
I've been dying to try the twirly skirt tutorial http://houseonhillroad.typepad.com/photos/twirly_skirt/ Finally got on that this week.

In the first one I copied a shirt that vegbee posted awhile back. I had to add side panels because my first shot turned out just a little more revealing than I would have liked. But now I have a good prototype and I was able to copy the shirt to paper so I'll have a quick pattern for next time.

I bought the shirt for the second one, but I put the appliques on myself. They kind of suck because my machine is stupid and doesn't have a satin stitch so I have to make due with the zig zag.

She calls them her "skaters". I play roller derby and one of the teams wears gingham tutus so I guess that's where that came from.

The last one is a rostitchery pillowcase-style dress:
I put butterfly buttons on the top near the elastic because I did a REALLY bad job getting the elastic sewn in and the bias tape attatched neatly. Now all I've got to do is sew on the eyelet and I'll be done! Woo hoo.

As always, darling!

And it works out really well for me because our wee ones are about the same size!

Thanks so much for the tute - we're going on vacation soon and this is just thing thing I need!

Your posts are like Christmas for me!!

They're all beautiful, but I'm totally in love with the obi sash one and the dress with the capri's.

I'm also insanely jealous that you have easier access to such amazing fabrics than I do plunked in the midwest.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 2 new dresses for the bunny - tiers and cheytown's button up!! on: July 10, 2007 09:31:03 AM
Holy mother of god - this dress sucked big time! I really wanted to pitch it in the trash at one point, but I get kind of stubborn and it was going to be finished or I'd kill myself trying. Seriously - it was a McCall's Easy Stitch and Save (M5370) but I just had to make it harder on myself!!

I've mentioned before how much I really, really hate to gather. So I thought I'd get all sneaky and gather the tiers with elastic thread. Not such a brilliant idea. The top tier went on just fine, the second and third tiers required me to enlist an extra 2 and then an extra 4 hands so I could get it pinned evenly. And it doesn't really hang/twirl like it should. But dang it, it's finished!!

No action shots because my little model was super cranky. And as it turns out, it's way too long for her and a big in the bodice as well. I'm just packing it up for next year because there is NO WAY I'm pulling it apart to shorten all the tiers. I don't want to just pull the hem up more because I want the tiers to all have the same proportions.

I was 100% exasperated after my "easy" mc calls project - even if it was my fault that it became hard - and so I decided to whip up one of cheytown's button down to dress dresses...

Much easier, much faster and MUCH cuter! It only took me the morning yesterday. She wore it to the airport to go pick up my folks and seriously, about 5 different people asked me where I got it.
Cheytown, you rock and I am going to make many more of these dresses!
