1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute Lion Sweaters For Toddlers on: December 02, 2017 11:07:43 AM
Hello Everyone!

Though I am not a big fan of making kids clothing (I am very selfish when it comes to sewing , lol), but I would like to show what I made for my lovely niece and nephew last year for Christmas - cute matching lion sweaters! How cute are they?  Grin


2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue Party Dress on: December 02, 2017 11:02:59 AM
Hello Everyone!

I would like to share one of my favourite creations this year - a blue dress that I made for a party!
The top part is fitted with V-neckline and the bottom is made using a half-circle skirt pattern (I added a quick how-to on my blog:
 https://sewingjulie.com/2017/10/29/how-to-sew-half-circle-skirt-to-any-dress/).
The dress is made from stretchy fabrics, so I had to include extra constructional steps (such as interfacing, lining and stabiliser) to give it a more defined shape and make it look like a special occasion dress, rather than an everyday dress.
Here is the final result - what do you think?  Wink

Great bag and nice work - looks really well made!  For anyone interested, alcantara is a more expensive version of ultra/micro suede.

Thank you Smiley I've checked ebay for this material and yes, it's really pricey (which is really sad, I liked it a lot!). But lucky for me, I paid less than 2$ for this jacket Smiley

What a beautiful bag! I love the material. It looks very soft.

Very beautiful construction! Smiley


Thank you both very much! Smiley

What a beautiful bag! I have a serious handbag addiction and will be looking for the perfect jacket to make one from!! I have bookmarked, pinned and drooled over this bag  Grin  Thank you so much for posting a tutorial on your blog. I will be following you to see what you make next. Such talent!!

Thank you, Solitaire Smiley It's so nice to hear compliments, but I don't think it's a talent: it's a skill that can developed in a spare time Smiley

Looks great! What are the dimensions of your bag?  And is it made out of suede?

Thank you Smiley The dimensions are 30cm x 30cm x 10cm. Material is alcantara (which is basically the polyester alternative for suede)

your bag turned out great!!

Thank you  Smiley

Love your bag! I like that colour!

I have seen a bag made from a skirt in a book and wanted to do that. But now I know I can also look for a nice jacket next time I am at the thrift store!

Thanks for sharing. You made a great tutorial on your blog too!!

It's my pleasure to be able to share the tutorials if they are helpful Smiley

OH MY GOODNESS!!! that is so cute!  love the framed square.  that fabric looks thick. did it kill your machine??? (or do you have a heavy duty machine?)

very nice Cheesy

No, the fabric isn't hard to sew at all! I was so surprised that it was so easy to sew Smiley But even if I would have used some other material (faux leather for example) it wouldn't have been a big problem - there aren't many layers to sew in this bag Smiley

That is brilliant and amazingly well done, nice job!

Thank you very much Smiley

That bag looks much smarter than the jacket did! Is it suede? I looks wonderful and I love the little leaf detail for the handles.

Thank you, Antidigger! The material is called alcantara (I first heard of it when I read the tag on a jacket): it looks like suede, it feels like suede and yet it's made from polyester. Amazing material to work with, unfortunately I haven't seen any in regular fabric stores (I'm not from USA) and the ones I saw on Ebay had a pretty high price... I guess I'll have to thrift more to find this material again Cheesy
