1  Oh so many dresses! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: November 26, 2007 11:14:38 AM
My girls love dresses so that's what I always make (I actually have an outfit to photograph for LaRue, my little girl, that includes leggings and she is telling me she doesn't want to wear it because she hates pants).  Here are a bunch of them that I have made within the past few months.

This is an A-line style dress with a ruffle on the bodice and 3 buttons going down it.  I made this with gray organic 100% cotton jersey.

A crossover dress made from Baby Nay fabric I found last summer at Hancocks and a pink with white dots.

Another crossover dress (I love these because they look cute, but are totally comfortable).  This one is made from an aqua organic 100% cotton jersey fabric.  I put 2 gray buttons on the neck binding.

Tie front dress with a pleated front and two pink buttons at the top of the pleat, made from a chandelier fabric.  I fell in love with this fabric from the moment I saw it, I love the chandlier design and the colors.

Lap tee dress made from a cotton knit with Euro flowers and binded with a pale lime green floral knit.

Chick dress with princess seams.  I saw this fabric in a big pile on the ground in Downtown LA.  I thought it was so cute and I love the drab colors.  I made this dress with princess seams so it's fitted in the chest and waist then flares out at the hem.  I put in pockets and added some yellow buttons.

Another princess seamed dress, but this one is a little different because there is gathering at the waist on the sides.  I used a gray organic cotton and french terry fabric and added orange buttons.  I think the buttons give the dress a bit of a military look.

2  Tuxedos and comics in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: October 02, 2007 11:27:29 PM
Only two things to show this time, so thankfully this isn't going to be some crazy img heavy post.

So first thing is this tuxedo dress that I made.  I had this dress in my head for awhile and with Christmas and special occasions coming up, I decided it was the right time to finally make it.  So I drafted the pattern and I'm so happy that it came out exactly as I imagined it Smiley  It is an a-line dress with a scoop neckline, framed with a row of black ruffles. Then there is a faux undershirt inset. I made it button up with pin tucks and lace ruffles. There is also a button on each sleeve. To girly it up a little more, I put lace at the bottom of the dress.

I also made the black cumberbund. It has a bow on it and it closes with 2 rows of hooks and eyes which are hiding behind the bow.

Now onto my comic book dress.  I have had this comic book cotton knit fabric for awhile and I've been really wanting to use it, but have been waiting to figure out what style it wanted to be.  Finally I figured it out and I have to say that I really love it and am glad that I finally was able to sew it up.

3  dresses galore...extremely img heavy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: August 13, 2007 03:02:17 PM
I've been sewing up nothing, but dresses this past month.

I've been sewing up quite a few of these Asian style dresses.  I really like them.  Cross-front bodice, flared hem, obi-style sash.


3.  Asian style baby gown with the cross-front bodice and elastic at the hem.

4. T-shirt dress with layered sleeves, lace on the bodice with 2 heart buttons, made with a tree orchard fabric.

5.  Dress with shirring at the neck, sleeves, and on the polka dot fabric insert at the waist.  It also has a large ruffle at the hem.

6.  Another baby gown, this time with the lap shoulders.

7.  Same style as the gown, but for a kid.  Lap shoulders, flared hem, and polka dot sash.

8.  Another shirred dress with large ruffle at the hem.  It has shirring at the neck, sleeves, and waist and also a extra long sash.

9.  I made this awhile ago, but forgot to share it.  It has shirring on the bodice and on the wide shoulder straps with 2 rows of ruffles on the hem.  Another extra long sash and some stripey leggings.

10.  With this one I made a skirt from some jeans, that I cut the legs off of then attached a tiered skirt with a white underlayer.  I appliqued the fabric I used for the skirt onto the tank top.  I also made a red with white dot sash.

11.  This is two dresses worn together.  The overdress has gathering at the center bodice with 3 buttons.  There are ruffle straps and a ruffle at the hem.  And I tied a turquoise ribbon at the waist.

12.  And here is the white underdress.  The fabric is so pretty, it has pink embroidery all over it.  I made a shirred dress with 3 tiers of ruffles.

13.  A cross-front dress made out of corduroy with a ruffle on the bodice.  There is a shirred undershirt made from a stripey fabric.  There are also green dot pants underneath.

14.  This is one of my favorites.  Sweet '50s style housedress.  Button front, puff sleeves, gathered attached skirt. 

15.  Another one of my favorites, but LaRue never really liked this one.  She isn't into denim....Shirred shirt, with a gathered shirt and elastic waist.

16.  Dress with a curved neckline bodice, straps that cross in the back and button in the front.  I attached the other fabric at the bodice and shirred the waist and added a ruffle at the hem.

4  So much to show..maybe a little too much..img heavy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: July 09, 2007 01:27:23 PM
I haven't posted any of the new things I've sewn in too long.  I have so much to share!

Sketched Bird dress.  I love this fabric so much, little orange birds on pink and blue hearts.  It is a princess seamed dress with 2 pockets.

C'est La Vie dress for Chloe, my older girl.  I was going through my big scrap basket the other day and found the front and back of this dress in the pile.  I think I cut this out a year ago and just forgot about it.  I decided that it was time to finally sew it up.  I cut out the sleeves and decided to make a layered sleeve look because Chloe has been talking about wanting me to make her a shirt with layered sleeves.  There is a girl in the fabric that has a black and white striped shirt so I decided to go with something unexpected and used black and white striped fabric for the underlayer.  She LOVES this dress and is on day 3 of wearing it.  Only annoying part is that the fabric is cotton/lycra and the hem wants to flip up.  I ironed it and it flipped up immediately.  Anyone have any helpful tips?

Ultra-girly tank dress made out a cotton knit fabric and pink plaid seersucker binding.  I made an extra long sash out of pink polka dot fabric.

Cotton knit dress with an Asian vibe to it.  It has a crossover bodice and an attached circle skirt.  I made an obi style sash to go with it.

Another knit dress with an Asian vibe to it.  Crossover dress, this one isn't as twirly, it just has a slight flare at the button.  I put 2 red heart buttons on the binding.

Vintage style dress.  I made this dress for Chloe because she loved the fabric.  She likes it, but she never really wears it.  It's too fancy for her, she is all about comfort.  The dress has princess seams, a vintage style collar, and buttons down the back.

Another really girly cotton knit dress.  It has 3 tiers, making it super twirly.  I also made plaid pants that had narrow binding on the hem.

This one is a tiered dress made from a cotton voile fabric and lined with a white cotton fabric.  It has a pocket on each side.  The underdress is made from a cotton knit fabric.  It has a ruffle crossover bodice and gathered attached skirt.

Ok, I think that is all  Tongue

The back is shirred so that there is some stretch, making it much more comfortable for kids. 


Do you have a picture of the back and did you do the shirring yourself?


Yes, I did shir the back myself.  Here is a picture of the back, it's kind of hard to see because the fabric is black.

6  *Rebel Girl* plaid corset dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: January 10, 2007 12:12:41 PM
Here is a plaid corset dress that I made, one of my favorite things I've made so far.  But as my mom said, that doesn't mean much when anything new that I make ends up being my new most favorite  Wink 

It's a corset style dress with light boning on the front bodice to give the dress a more structured look. It has grommets and red ribbon. The back is shirred so that there is some stretch, making it much more comfortable for kids.  The shoulder straps are a stretch lace. The bottom is an attached bubble skirt made of silk dupioni.

7  Inspired by Audrey in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: October 16, 2006 01:59:33 PM
This is a set I made which inspired by Audrey Hepburn's character in Sabrina, specifically this dress.

Here is my version:

The dress is made with a stretch denim embossed with a velvet floral design.  It is boatneck style with shoulder ties and a dropped waist.  There are buttons in the back.

I decided to add the feminine cumberbund to make it a bit funkier.  I got inspired by one that my 14 y.o. sister found at a thrift shop.  Mine is made with a fuschia stretch poplin and it has 2 rows of snap closures that are hidden by the big bow.

Underneath is a petticoat made with tulle and lined with a black stretch poplin.  And I also added a boatneck top for cooler weather.  It is made of black velour and is cropped with 3/4 sleeves.

While making the petticoat, I thought it would be fun to make some black and white striped leggings with stretch lace on the hem to go underneath and create a totally different look with some of the different pieces.  So here is a more punk outfit with the petticoat, leggings, white tank top, cumberbund, and velour top.

8  Apple Pie A' La Mod and Birds Of A Feather in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: October 04, 2006 10:37:13 AM
Here are two new sets I made, the first one is Apple Pie A' La Mod.  I used an apple corduroy that I've had for awhile.  I was inspired to do a funky mod set, something I've been wanting to do for awhile. I just love mod clothes, for myself and my girls. When I was in high school, most of my clothes were vintage mod dresses.

The dress has a dropped waist and lace on the bodice. The bottom is pleated and it has buttons up the back. I made a detachable belt out of brown stretch corduroy which has light pinstripes.

The pants are straight legged and made from the same brown corduroy.

Look at my girl working the camera, hahaha, I swear I didn't tell her to pose like this. She came up with it all on her own.

Here is my Birds Of A Feather dress.  It's made with a soft voile fabric.  I made a lined wrap dress which ties at the side.

9  Revolution In the Classroom in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: August 01, 2006 09:44:10 AM
My ebay group is doing a back to school theme, we are all making sets that represent a clique.  I loved this idea because I'm a punker mama and have been wanting to make a punk set for awhile.  I used this great punk cotton knit fabric for the dress.  The dress has skinny shoulder straps and a dropped waist with attached circle skirt.  I used black brushed denim for the wrap jacket with grommet tape for the ties and skull patches that I took from a cotton knit fabric that I have.  The leggings are made from a cotton/lycra fabric with stretch lace at the hem and the headband is made from a stretch plaid fabric.

I also made an outfit for my baby girl.  I used a lightweight voile fabric that has images of a Japanese garden. I happened to have a matching plaid fabric thatI've had for awhile.  The dress has a scoop neck and curved bodice.  The pants are wide-legged with an oversized ruffle.  And the top has shirring around the neck, sleeves, and waist.

10  Bikes, dandelions, Hello Kitty, dots...I've been busy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by feministfatale on: July 22, 2006 09:41:46 AM
Here is a bunch of other girls' clothes that I've made.

I love these fabrics, old school bikes and dandelions, I threw in a little bit of polka dots because I can't get away from them, I love them too much.

The dress was inspired by a 1940s dress.

Matching shirt and pants set

I didn't make the tank top, it's from American Apparel, I just appliqued it and made the matching skirt.

This is actually 2 dresses worn together, giving the bottom more poof.

This is the underdress with wide legged pants.  The white dress is a tiered peasant dress with shirring at the neckline and sleeves.

I made this dress for a customer.  It's a gift for the customer's friend that just had a baby girl.  It's a reversible wrap dress, the other side is all pink with white polka dots.

Hello Kitty tiered peasant dress.  I made this dress for my older daughter who was going to a monochromatic birthday party.  They wanted all the guests to wear yellow.  My girl doesn't have anything in yellow, but I did have a few yellow fabrics, so I whipped this up for her.
