551  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Toddler Clothing--help please! on: June 12, 2005 04:50:10 AM
www.simplicity.com Has a couple of Lizzie Mguire(sp?) patterns just for toddler girls, I already have one and it is awesome.  Try looking at simplicity.

I would suggest to her an empire waist, like this........

http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?cat=1&type=1&sec=0&id=15&startrow=1  look for 5106

I have 3 kids so I know for myself I would have prefered a dress to hang from my shoulders, rather than a seperate skirt because it isn't very comfortable IMHO.

I like the shirt, I would put a small bow of the same color on the side, but I am older and plainer.........lol. 

I want one though......did you use a pattern or just wing it?  If you didn't use a pattern could you post a tutorial?  Pretty Please?


554  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question! Sorry... Pattern size! on: June 09, 2005 01:31:34 PM
If its vintage you may have to refigure your size, and watch out for non-existant seam allowances, they used to print them without, and you just added your own.  Also, sizes have changed since then, for example, a size 14 back then may now be closer to an 8. 

Exactly what is vintage to you?  pre-1980? (just curious)

HTH, if you need any more help just post in this thread and I will check back later.

I don't understand......do you cut two? or one? and where do you fold them?

I feel pretty silly not understanding!

I cut out all the pieces from a stretch woven, instead of my original fabric.  I thought I would do a muslin first.  I tried making the loops but I can't get them to turn, they are so small.  Any suggestions?

I think you need something called a quick turn, or maybe its called a fast turn.....

I just bought one similar and I love them (2 in the package)


They were less than $10 Canadian.

Hope that helps!

I love that style.  How did you make them.....pattern or no pattern?  Tutorial please?

558  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / my version of simp 4998 on: June 01, 2005 09:34:58 PM
I tried to move this topic into the simp. 4998 sew-a-long, but I couldn't get it there.......origionally had it in the completed projects area.

This is my version of simplicity 4998, although from the front you can't tell that I altered it.  This picture makes me look really thick around the middle.....what a bummer  Angry.

The skirt is shorter than the pattern because I am short, I used the lining pattern for the top bodice and used ribbons as ties, I used white piping on all the seams around the bodice and I changed the back so that the top bodice back is only 2" or so with white piping on top and at the seam to join it to the rest of the back bodice. 

It seems a bit big through the sides, but I find that once I wash something it shrinks even more, even if I pre-shrink the fabric, so I guess I will wait and see what happens.

I whipped through it, it took about 3 hours in total, I am pretty happy with it, but I hate this picture.......it makes me look fat!  LOL it doesn't really bother me that much!

Any ideas what I could do to make the centre bust look more interesting? it seems plain and boring to me.......not like the print isn't loud enough already right?

total cost: $30 and everything was 50% off......good thing I like this! Its my most expensive so far.

comments/critisism welcome! Thanks for looking.

P.S. I discovered that if I use a ball of yarn to iron the bust darts it shapes it really nice.......also if the ball is your "size" you can make sure the darts don't end up looking like madonna's bullet bras once you try it on......
