1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Pink Patchwork Skirt on: February 03, 2009 01:33:43 AM
My niece is 13 months old. She is larger than average, but walks really well and is super cute. I'll try to get photos whet the skirt finally gets posted.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / PJ Bottoms with Cami and Undies on: February 03, 2009 01:31:02 AM
I Have My Sewing Mojo Back!  Grin

(For now at least!)

Today I made:
PJ bottoms to match my robe:

And a cami and undies set in red to match!

I'm feeling happy and productive! (Maybe that's just the wine?)
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink Patchwork Skirt on: February 02, 2009 01:58:40 AM
For My Niece.

I saw this fun patchwork skirt that vegbee had posted on her blog (http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/05/patchwork-circle-skirt.html)and had wanted to make one. A while ago Spotlight had a sale on fat quarters and I had picked up 10 different pinks with this project in mind. Each square is 5 inches, the first tier is 10 squares, the second is 20 squares and the third tier is 40 squares. Quite a full skirt by the end.

Now I need to get it in the post.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer Robe on: February 02, 2009 01:51:27 AM
New Look 6657
I have been wanting a new Summer Robe for a while and have just got my hands on quite a few metres of this fabulous tropical cotton. I needed to try out this pattern from New Look. I felt that a red contrast would make the print pop. I am quite happy with the final result. I made the medium size, long length, short sleeve with pockets.



Pocket Detail:

I didn't worry about matching the pattern for the pockets as I kind of wanted to see them.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Retro Red Apron on: February 02, 2009 01:47:23 AM
Simplicity 4282.
I had bought this patterns a while ago and finally got around to making one. View A, size large. The fabric is a furnishing fabric remnant bought for 50c per metre with gold satin bias binding. I have wanted a red apron for a while and finally got around to making one.



Modifications included lengthening the bodice, crossing the back straps and omitting the buttons on the back straps.

Really excellent job! I think it looks better than the bought dress! It is actually made to fit a gorgeous girl with real curves.

I have this pattern in my collection and keep meaning to pull it out and give it a go. Excellent inspiration.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Coordinated dresses and frilled bloomers. on: November 12, 2008 09:36:17 PM
Some more dresses for my niece.

I bought this really cute pattern while they were less than half price at Spotlight recently and just had to make it.
From New Look 6794.
All made from printed cotton and eyelet lace. I made a size large, but I think these will be a bit too big for her now, hopefully she will grow into them before the end of the summer (here in Oz).

This is dress C over dress B:

Thanks for looking. I hope my SIL likes them when I finally get around to posting them to her.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Orange gingham, daisies and a ruffly bottom! on: November 12, 2008 09:24:09 PM
Made for my niece:

And the ruffly panties:

All made from an old pattern Butterick 3949 from 1986. The ruffles on the bottom are rows of eyelet lace sewn across the back before the side seams were sewn. Made with a remnant of printed cotton and trimmed with eyelet lace. All very easy.
I hope my SIL loves it, must post it soon.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Red and White Dotty Border Print Dress on: October 12, 2008 09:14:58 PM

I recently bought some red and white dotty border print light weight cotton and wanted to make a fun dress ready for the Australian Summer. I used the top part of a princess seam dress to make the bodice and simply gathered the skirt on. I used some left over fabric to make a sash. I haven't worn it yet as the weather got cool and wet just after I finished it, but it's warming up now.




Thanks for looking.
