I really think this is way too subtle.  Have you thought about jazzing it up at all?   Wink

I just hit "this rocks"--I want to see someone wearing this thing!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Online source for printed jersey/knit fabric on: September 25, 2007 10:54:38 AM
Hi, everybody,

I just discovered that my machine can handle jersey fabric better than I thought.  Given the number of lovely printed jersey items in retail stores these days, I thought for sure I'd find lots of printed jersey fabric online. No dice.  All I find are swimsuit prints and icky glitter prints.  Anyone have a good online source for jersey fabric in attractive prints?

Many Thanks,

What gorgeous details. I love the way you made the best of the cute bits of the 'before' dress in adding your own accents.  Well done!

Is it just me, or is Waldo REALLY easy to find? I think he's lost his touch . . .

In all seriousness, this is a seriously awesome hoodie with seriously hilarious fabric.

I love all of these, but the sundress + ruffled pants outfits are my favorite--so cute, yet so practical!

Wow, thanks everybody--so the overwhelming consensus is to leave it as is, and feed the kid so she grows into it? I love this solution, as it means I don't have to work more on it!

blue engine--I think I will take your suggestion of tacking back the sleeves--maybe I'll even get fancy and make one of those button-back tie things. 
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Gored (Gusseted?? Godet-ed??) Toddler Fall Jacket on: September 12, 2007 06:45:48 AM

I finally finished this drop-shoulder, gored jacket for my just-turned-2-year-old daughter. It's fully lined, with a hood and covered buttons.  I'm still not sure adding the gored panels was such a fantastic idea, but I think they're growing on me. 

It's made of cotton velveteen, and the lining is a cotton Marimekko-style print purchased from a fantastic local discount store--I used about a yard of each fabric, and they were each $2 a yard, so even with the the covered button kit, the project cost was about $6.

It was loosely based on a raincoat of hers--I didn't get to try it my daughter ONE TIME during the construction (anybody else have a just-turned-two-year old who can say "I don't want to try anything on"?), so the fit leaves something to be desired, and it's especially loose around her little narrow shoulders.  Do you think I should try to fix it, or just wait for her to grow into it?  All in all, I'm pleased with it--I took my time with this one, and did some of the nice details like top-stitching and reinforcing that make this garment look a lot less thrown-together than some of my other attempts. 

Comments and constructive criticism welcome!

Fantastic--your kids will look back years from now and be in awe of your skills.  This is what I tell myself anyway.

I love the rescue packs--great idea, even better execution!

Fantabulous idea--although if it were me, I could see myself reaching for the pincushion instead of my cup of coffee .  . . but still a great idea!

Wow--really lovely, and what painstaking finishing details.  Your niece is lucky to have an aunt like you!
