22  Want to see how I spent my weekend? IMG heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: May 27, 2008 02:49:58 PM
Here are some of the projects I have been working on this weekend and just the past week.

First up a Vida:
The fabrics are Michael Miller and Joanns.  I love the little ruffle under the bodice piece.

Some Chocolate Lollipop.  Carpris and halter top.  Not really any pattern - just is mis match of parts of lots of patterns.

Princess Redondo and Wristlet:
I love the glass slipper applique on the wristlet.

Reverse applique on a otto curved raglan.  The short are wool jersey (customer provided).  I was really nervous making them because there was not room for error.  I could just fit the pattern on the fabric.

I also finished some baby carriers, hooded towel, lounge set, and some skirts.  If you care to see more there are more photos in my blog.

Thanks for looking!

Well I am really late in posting photos.  But here they are anyway.  All the business card pouches are the same.  It has a loop to add to your keyring if you want.  I just need to add snaps to them.
The headband will be different fabrics.  I am working on them this weekend and I can post photos of the finished ones soon.

My daughter will only wear dresses that really spin.  She just loves this dress.  The skirt is about 90 inches around!

The spinning photo:

Here is a drawstring waist, a-line skirt for me.

And one last photo of us together:

25  Is the too much? in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: May 14, 2008 10:20:42 AM
I was working on some pirate shorts for my ds.  I also had this shirt I in my UFO pile.  Can I put them together?  My ds seems to like them - but his is not even 2 yet...

What do you think?

I am thinking the shirt my need some words appliqued on it or something.  Or do I just leave it alone, or should I make a new shirt to go with the shorts?

Thanks in advance...

26  Some recent girly outfits - IMG heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: April 30, 2008 10:38:56 AM
Here are a few more things I have been working on lately. 

First up an Olivia.  I omitted the hood and added a picot trim on the neckline and hem.  I am thinking about adding a sailboat to the lower front.  What do you think?

Next up the recycled dress from ottobre.  This dress went together so quickly.  It is a gift for my niece for her 1st birthday - here mom is Tinkerbell crazy!

This is the strawberry tunic from the current otto and the knit shorts from another issue.  I think the print is Chez Ami and the chocolate is from Joanns.

Next is a sweet little pillowcase dress.  I love the simplicity of these dresses.

And lastly - I had to make a replacement Cinderella dress for my dd's birthday party.  I had made one for her for last Halloween.  She has worn it for Halloween and for 3 trips to Disneyland.  I have patched it with appliques twice and on the last trip it ripped more than I wanted to  patch again.  So this time I purchased more expensive fabric to make the dress.  Here is the result:

Sorry for the book.  Thanks for looking!

27  Shorts sets for my little man in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: April 30, 2008 10:07:48 AM
Here are a couple of short sets I have just finished for my little man.

First up is his guitar pants.  He loves this set.  It is Michael Miller guitars.  The guitar on the shirt is a reverse applique.  I wanted the lime in the shirt to be a little brighter - but that was the best I could find locally.  It matches alright.

Next up, I just made some shorts to go the the dino shirt I made this winter.  I love this dino camo fabric.

My ds is sleeping right now - I will try and get some modeled shots later.

Thanks for looking!

28  Appliqued Tree of Life in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: March 04, 2008 01:38:13 PM
Not clothing - but it is for a baby.  This mei tai was inspired by a batik by Hoffman: Tree of Life I could not just purchase the fabric and make a mei tai. I had a pretty borwn and batik and found the green on the remnant bin.  Here is my rendition of the tree of life.  The mei tai panel is appliqued. I had fun doing this panel - there are so many ideas turning in my head now.

Modeled on "the lady" as my children say.

Flat so you can see the entire panel:

I have some more detailed photos in my blog.  And if you click on the photos in the blog they enlarge too.

After having so much fun with the applique - I thought it need a bag to go with it.  So this is a coming and going bag - pattern by that*darn*kat.  Katie has made such a great pattern - very easy to follow and a great result.  Next time I will use a heavier interfacing than I had on hand.  The bag is lined with the green floral fabric.  Sorry about the bad lighting.

The mei tai fits right in the bag so it can be used as a tote for the mei tai or just as a purse.

Thanks for looking!

29  Princess Dress for a Disneyland Birthday! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: February 20, 2008 02:45:16 PM
Well, my daughter insistes on only wearing Princess dresses (any dress that flairs way out when you spin). Since we are going back to Disneyland for her birthday - I thought she needed a fancy Princess dress.

I started with the idea of a halter style dress. I also wanted the back to be shirred (I thought it would look better than just encased elastic). So I found a basic halter pattern and modified from there. I added the shirred back panel. The skirt is almost a complete circle to maximum twirl factor - which is very important to my daughter. Three fabrics were layered in this skirt. The under skirt is a sparkly pink fabic, the middle layer is a layer of tulle, and the top skirt is the princess fabric. All the skirts are finished with a rolled hem. I really like the rolled hem on the tulle. The search is now on for the perfect button - I am thinking a princess crown. I am not sure why it matters though with my daughter's long hair no one will ever see it - LOL.

Here is the result:

Detail of the hems:

And I was able to get some modeled shots.  My dd is not cooperative these days - but what 3.5 year old is - LOL.

Now that I have overloaded you with photos, if you want to see any more detailed photos I have some in my blog.

Thanks for looking!

30  190 patches & 16 different fabrics = 2 dresses in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ktlady on: February 20, 2008 02:11:09 PM
After I posted the photos of my daughter's Disney patchwork dress, I was asked to make a pair of them for sisters.

One is size 18 month and the other is about a 4/5T. The large one is made of 151 5-inch patches and the smaller one is 40 5-inch patches. So in total I sewed about 190 patches together to make these two dresses. The older sister is just crazy about Tinkerbell so both bodice fronts are Tinkerbell and the back bodice has the work Princess centered on it.

The dress are just about complete circles for maximum twirl factor.  Can you just imagine the little one twirling in these dresses?

This is the 18 month one:

This is the 4/5 one:

And a not so great photo of the two of them together.

Thanks for looking!
